Ready to create some new family memories this year? Here are 13 simple ideas for new traditions, crafts, recipes and more. Pick a few and use them this holiday season to brighten up your home with Christmas charm.
Some are geared specifically toward small children and others are better suited for adults to prepare. These activities are unique, creative and I hope that you find some new favorites.
In this book, you will find Christmas activities for your preschooler, beautiful home crafts, gift ideas you can make yourself and give to others, delicious recipes to use in cookie exchanges or for Christmas morning. You will also receive a cookie exchange party plan, a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt the entire family can enjoy and an idea for a new family tradition you may want to start this year!
As a blogger, I love that these bloggers came together to create something so neat!
As a Scrooge, it’s great to have a book that gives me ideas, crafts, recipes, to do with the kids during the holidays without my really having to try real hard.
Christmas with Kids offers ideas for crafts that are suitable for younger kids up to school aged kids; recipes that kids can help make or that adults can make themselves; gift ideas that I felt were more adult geared, but if you have older kids, I am sure they could help; and ideas to make memories.
We take the kids out looking at Christmas lights every year. We stop and get hot chocolate, load the kids up, and drive around looking. The book has a great Christmas light scavenger hunt that I will be using this year! The kids will have a blast!
Overall, I feel that most the crafts were things that all 3 of my kids could do (ages 2, 7, and 9). I think I only saw one that really made me hesitate and think that it wasn’t kid appropriate.
The recipes I felt weren’t necessarily child geared, but my 9 year old would have a good time baking them as she is learning how to bake. My 7 and 2 year old can help bake, but I know everyone would love to eat!
The gift ideas I felt were more adult oriented. Although, as a homeschooling mom, I felt the mason jar gift ideas were something that my older two could do with me and use as a math lesson as well.
The memories and traditions I think were my favorite part. Our traditions this year will be different than any other year. I have the same traditions for 31 years and now this year, all that ends. The traditions and ideas that were presented are great things for me to add into our new Christmas tradition as a family.
I think it’s a great book and would make a great gift for parents and families!
