Welcome to another edition of Must Have Craft Tips and More!
Allison here once again to bring you another great Christmas tip.
Today, I wanted to share with you some fun Christmas traditions you can do with your family to create loads of memories for everyone!
To begin, I will start with the classic advent calendar.
Advent Calendars are a fun way to help build up the excitement of Christmas for the whole family but they don’t always have to be the normal, open something and get candy, type of calendar.
Think outside the box. Do something special as a family. Do something special for others in your community. Have fun! Be together! Enjoy the reason of the season!
is a something that I know my girls would love. Wrap the books up all fun, put a number on each and let one child pick out the book each night, gather together as a family and read the book.
You can print this one out or create one that works for your family but you don’t have to go over the top to have quality family time that is meaningful and you can do it along with counting down to one of the most popular holidays!
To go along with those advent calendar, it’s the season to spend time as a family and create wonderful memories to last a lifetime. Kids have off from school, hopefully you have a few days off work, so why not slow down from your fast paced life and enjoy each other for a change!
This time of year, make new traditions with family and friends!
Play games, get creative, bake delicious treats, watch movies, and just have fun together!
Have a family craft night!
Every year my little family has a holiday craft night. We pick out a few fun and easy crafts that we can all do together and spend the evening getting creative. My girls love it and we have so much fun seeing what we each come up with.
Every year, going back to when my husband and I were still dating, we make ornaments by putting acrylic paint into clear ornaments so that tradition has continued now that we have kids. Last year we also created some fun paper plate trees and the girls got to decorate their own plates with Sharpie paint pens as well.
This Cookie Plate for Santa from Mine for the Making is created using vinyl and then this Santa plate from A Glimpse Inside was created with Sharpie paint pens and then baked in the oven.Both can be used for years to come!
They get so excited to help decorate the tree so why not make a fun tradition by giving them their own mini tree inside their rooms that are all for them. They get to decorate it any way they want, again and again if they are like my girls, and they can admire their own tree for the whole season!
My last tradition is make Christmas morning breakfast special!
Start the morning with a delicious breakfast but why not make it fun!?
Create Christmas related shapes with your food and show off your holiday spirit in a fun, unique way!
Start with a whole meal like with the Santa pancakes or create those Reindeer Donuts for something quick to eat before opening presents and before you larger meal is ready.
I want this for breakfast this year too!
There you have it!
I hope you create some new traditions with your families this year and enjoy special time together.
