15 Christmastime Activities for Kids

ChristmasAll Ages15 Comments

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!

15 Christmas activities for kids to do - with a quick supply list!
