Christmas Activities for Kids

Over 30 fun Christmas ideas to do with kids
We love Christmas! It’s such a magical time of year. It’s when we get to do all those fun Christmas activities, like dressing the tree, baking biscuits, making Christmas crafts, wrapping presents, singing carols, and all that sort of Christmasy goodness.

I think I get just as excited as the kids, lol.

Here are some Christmas ideas we’ve done in the Banya household – as you can see, we’ve covered a few of the main themes – there’s Santa, Rudolph (and the other reindeer), snowmen, Christmas trees, mistletoe, Christmas lights, ornaments, jingle bells, candy canes, gingerbread…

And of course, we’ll be adding more Christmas activities in the lead up to the big day. Eep, I can’t wait, I can’t wait!

More Awesome Christmas Activities

Want even more? Here are some of my all time favourite Christmas activities from bloggers around the web. Gosh some of these kids are creative!

  • These woolly twig stars from The Craft Train are just that right mix of kid-made, yet rustic.
  • This scrap ribbon ornament from Fireflies and Mudpies is so pretty! I think the secret to this looking so awesome is that she’s used ribbons that are the same width.
  • We made these crystal candy canes for our sister site Go Science Girls. They’ve held up really well in storage, so we’ll be putting them on our tree again this year.
  • Here’s another crystal Christmas idea, for the younger kids this time. Make a salt crystal wintery tree!
