The holidays are the most magical time of year when families join together to celebrate and create memories that will last a lifetime. If you're looking for fun activities you can do with your kids this season, you've come to the right place! Let's take a look at some of the best family-friendly options you and your kiddos will enjoy.
Go Ice Skating
Ice skating is a quintessential part of the holiday season, enjoyed by thousands throughout the decades. Even those living in warmer climates can enjoy this chilly pastime thanks to the emergence of indoor skating rinks. Your kids will laugh with glee as they struggle to stay upright, gliding across the slippery surface. Many ice skating facilities provide assistance equipment for kids (and adults) who are still working on mastering this fun activity.
Check Out The Lights
One of the most fun and affordable activities during this season is checking out all the glittering lights. Whether you drive around your neighborhood or take a holiday light tour, there's nothing like the magic of watching the multi-colored lights twinkle in the cool crisp air. This is sure to become a favorite family activity the kids will look forward to every year.
Make Gingerbread Houses
Kids love making gingerbread houses and showing off their creativity and skill. This activity lets their imaginations run wild as they make little masterpieces full of gumdrops and lollipops. You can purchase ready-to-make kits or bake your own; either way, it's sure to be a blast for the entire family.
Caroling is an excellent way to spread holiday cheer and sing some of your favorite seasonal songs. Bundle the kids up and get a group together for even more fun, as you go door to door spreading cheer. You can end the night with warm apple cider and delicious holiday treats for a night full of memories your kids will cherish for a lifetime.
Make a Popcorn Garland
Garlands are the perfect seasonal decor, regardless of the holidays you celebrate. You can hang them on a tree, banister, counter, mantle, or even along your mirrors; the possibilities are endless. For a fun activity, make some popcorn and thread it onto a string. You can add cranberries or beads for a pop of color and to match your decor. Your kids will love showing off their hard work and sneaking a few salty bites as they make their creations.
Attend A Show
Holiday plays and ballets are fun for the whole family and an excellent way to expose your children to the arts. There are many holiday-themed showings this time of year, including "A Christmas Carole" and "The Nutcracker." Who knows, it may ignite a passion for the arts and encourage your child's creativity and imagination!
The holidays are an excellent time to spend together with the family, enjoying different activities and creating memories. Children of all ages will enjoy the activities above as you spend time together, creating memories you'll cherish forever.
