Here Comes Santa Claus! – Have the most magical Christmas ever!
For children, Christmas is a truly magical time. Why not embrace all the magic and make Christmas one to really remember and cherish? It is all too easy to get caught up in the new toys and gadgets, but why not really make the most of the festive season with children as you count down to the big day.
Get creative! Making Christmas cards is a great way to keep children of all ages occupied and creative. It doesn’t cost a lot and relatives will adore a homemade card from a child at Christmas time. Get some glitter, glue crayons, and even some festive foliage, and get creating!
Go to a carol concert – Children will love to join in with all the well-known carols, and it gets the whole family in the Christmas spirit. You could get a carols cd to keep in the car or home so that children can learn the songs.
Decorate the House – One of the most fun things about Christmas is decorating the house! Get the children to make paperchains to hang from the ceilings, and decorate the tree all together. They could all make their own special Christmas ornament to put on the tree, or you can buy them with children’s names on to make it feel extra special. Don’t forget little touches like a wreath for the door!
Write Letters to Santa – This is a fun activity that will get them so excited for the big day! Get them to illustrate the letters with pictures of what they would like to receive and then go out and post them off to the North Pole!
Do some Festive baking – Try making a gingerbread house – you can’t really go too far wrong with one of these tasty treats, as even if it does all fall down, it will still be delicious! Or maybe have a go at some mince pies or Christmas cookies. Younger children could help with decorating them.
Transform the Bedroom – Ready for the big day, make sure that stockings are hung ready and waiting. If you want to update the Bedrooms, Essex company http://www.rgcole.co.uk/ can bring some extra sparkle to them ready for a truly magical festive room. You could hang twinkling fairly lights around the bedroom doors, and remember to leave out the mince pie and milk for Father Christmas and the carrot for the reindeer!
