5 Fun Christmas Activities for the Kids

Christmas time is an exciting time of year. Australian Christmas involves sweet mangoes, long summer days and gorgeous sunsets, blue skies and crystal-clear oceans. Everyone loves Christmas time, it’s a time for giving, receiving, eating and relaxing. But no one loves Christmas more than kids! Christmas is the event of the year for children. There is nothing more exciting than decorating the Christmas tree or baking Christmas cookies. Below are some fun funky Christmas activities your kids will love!
 

  1. Cooking
    Get creative in the kitchen with your kids. Stock up on a variety of coloured food dye and Christmas decorations. There are a variety of Christmas recipes online but leave the decorating up to your kids – let them use their imagination and express themselves.
  2. Origami
    Christmas origami can be slightly challenging, but extremely rewarding. Origami requires concentration and following steps, a perfect holiday activity to keep the kids entertained and still engaged.
  3. Christmas Cards
    Something your family members will adore is handmade Christmas cards. If you take control of the initial design, you can pass it on to your children to fill in the blanks, but make sure you give your children some creative freedom because your family will appreciate their artwork.
  4. Christmas Tree Decorations
    Get creative with painting and sticking glitter onto borbals and plain wooden stars etc. A trip to Kmart will lead you to a range of plain decorations that your children can decorate with all sorts of fun colours and textures.
  5. Christmas lights
    Even if you’re not particularly interested in the full house Christmas light extravaganza, you can get creative simply. Even if you simply put lights up in your house, or in trees in the backyard – your children will love them!

Christmas time may not necessarily be your favourite time of year, but while your children are young it will most definitely be theirs. Get creative with your children and they might even make things easier on you. Not to mention, Christmas holidays can be long for your kids so keep them entertained and engaged with some fun crafty learning activities.
