Does your family have Christmas traditions? Traditions other than holiday shopping
. Here are a few traditions that your kids will love, it’s a great way to get them involved in the holiday season.
Bake Cookies for Santa. Whether your child believes in Santa or not, the thought of someone who is so magical he can fly through the sky and drop presents off at every home all in one night adds a delightful fragrance to the season of Christmas. So bake a few chocolate chip cookies for Santa and set out a glass of milk for him to wash them down, ‘he’ will be thankful for the thoughtfulness.
Take the kids with you to pick out the Christmas tree
. Everyone should have a live Christmas tree at least once in their lifetime. Traveling to either a forest of pine trees in the woods and snow or just to the local Christmas tree lot is such a fun experience families can share together. Let the kids help choose the tree they think would look perfect in your living room.
After the tree is chosen and the Christmas lights are strung let the kids help hang the Christmas decorations
. They will feel so accomplished when they see the ornament hanging where they so meticulously chose for it to sit.
On Christmas morning, allow the children to take turns passing out all the gifts. They are already so excited, sometimes it’s hard to harness that excitement and keep it under control, if you give them a task like handing out the gifts, not only will it help manage their joy but it is also a great organizational tradition to add to your Christmas morning.
These are just a few traditional Christmas traditions that will let your kids feel like part of the holiday action. Do you have special traditions you do with your family?
