The kids and I have had a blast with Christmastime activities this year! I thought I’d place them all in one spot, along with some of my faves from last year!
With one week to Christmas, there’s plenty of time to do a few activities yet.
However, I know with the holiday shopping madness, you’re probably not going to want to head to the store just to get some school glue, or something else, just to do a Christmas craft. At least I don’t.
So, I included a quick reference here of all the supplies you’ll need to do the activity. So you’ll know right off hand if you have right stuff!
