List of Christmas Activities For Kids
Here are some fun-filled Christmas activities which you will not only enjoy with them, but will also keep them engaged in the year-end celebrations.
Unwrap the block party
Get some blocks wrapped in newspaper/ used wrapping papers. Children have to pretend the wrapped blocks are the gifts which they have to unwrap. Empty cereal boxes can also be used.
Ask children to make handmade cards. They can make beautiful drawings and then decorate them by using glitters, stickers, fallen leaves, etc. Don’t forget to spread a newspaper on the floor in the working area to avoid the mess.
Play physical & digital games
Keep your kids entertained with integrated learning from wonderLearn. You can play physical games like Memory Game, Tetris & Sea Animals with your children. Not only this, keep yourself amused with their digital content.
Did you know an octopus has blue blood, 3 hearts and 9 brains? Download the wonderLearn app to know many more fun facts and let your children learn about the world around them, in a fun way.
Santa is here
Indulge in some pretend play by someone dressing as Santa Claus. Children always get thrilled to see a Santa and getting few candies from an ‘actual’ Santa would be fun!
Twinkle- twinkle X-mas Star
Let the children get creative by asking them to make stars. Use carboard boxes/ thick papers and cut the shapes of the stars. Provide these ‘stars’ to them which they have to decorate themselves.
Drive around to see the Christmas lights
Kids are always excited to see the enchanting decorations, so it would be a good idea to just drive around in the neighborhood to see the X-mas lights. Who knows, you might see a Santa too!
Indulge in some Christmas baking
With the help of your little chefs, you can bake some banana bread, X-mas tree shaped cake, Oreo cookie Santa, or puddings. Use Christmas- special cookie cutters to make baking more exciting! Ask the kids to whisk the batter and decorate their bakes.
Write letters to Santa
Encourage your children to write letters to Santa. They can write their wishes or anecdotes. If the child is too small to write, ask her/him to draw!
