Invite Santa Claus

Christmas is magical in many ways. If your children still believe in Santa Claus, then he is the man to bring you the magic this Christmas. You can incorporate Father Christmas into your Christmas activities. If your children leave out milk and cookies for Santa, leave some crumbs on the plate and on the table where they left them. You can leave signs of tissue paper or wrapping paper from gifts that Santa has in his gift sack. Your children will wake up to find gifts under the tree and little hints that Santa stopped by. By paying attention to detail you can really help to create a magical Christmas experience for your kids and you should end up enjoying it yourself too!

Make new traditions

Many people have Christmas and holiday traditions that span over many generations. Why not add a little flare to these traditions? If your family gives gifts to everyone each year, why not draw names for gift giving with a Christmas gift exchange game such as Secret Santa? By putting all of the family's names in a hat, you can pick a person to give a very special gift to. This will make everyone excited to see how a new person shops for them each year, and will add a little bit of excitement into your usual gift-giving. This is also one of the best ideas if you're spending Christmas as a couple.

Have an ornament making party

Get the whole family involved in this magical Christmas activity! There are Christmas ornament making kits that you can buy at your local craft store or you can make them without a kit. Your children and loved ones will love to make their own homemade Christmas ornaments so that they can display them on the tree. They will be so proud of what they made and visitors during the holidays will be very impressed.

We also have lots of ideas about different craft ideas for homemade Christmas decorations to give you some ideas. Why not try making some decorations from recycled materials or some homemade table place cards?

Volunteer at Christmas

Many people do not know what it feels like to not have family or friends to celebrate the holidays with. Why not take time out of your Christmas and volunteer to help those in need? It is important for children to learn about culture and the world so taking them with you may really help them to realize what they need to be grateful for. This will teach them a life lesson and make them aware of just how fortunate they are.

You can also volunteer at thanksgiving if you really want to try and make a difference to somebody's holiday season. Homeless shelters or different charitable organizations are always looking for some assistance.
