The Christmas holidays are a very exciting time of year in many households, but they often leave parents wondering what they can do to entertain their children in the run-up to the big day. We’ve put together our list of the best Christmas activities to engage your children this holiday season.
Let your children get messy with Crafty Pods
From drawing to painting or collage, arts and crafts are the perfect way to keep your kids entertained during the Christmas period. Why not encourage your children to write a letter to Father Christmas, or maybe make a ‘stop here’ sign for the front door?
If you are worried about the mess, you can rest assured with our Crafty Pods any spills or mess will be contained so you can focus your attention on your work. With easy wipe and water-resistant material, Crafty Pods are the perfect addition to your messy time this Christmas.
Have quiet time with an Audio Book
The perfect activity to do on those cold Christmas evenings, a Christmas audiobook can get your little ones in the festive mood. Audiobooks are a great way to keep your children entertained, and are perfect for any reading age. With a large variety of options available from fiction to education,, there's bound to be something that entertains your little one this Christmas.
Audio Books are a great way of letting your child unwind and settle down. Why not create a calming environment perhaps with a cosy blanket and hot chocolate station to create the ultimate Christmas set-up during those cosy winter evenings?
Baking is a great example of a Christmas activity for kids at home, allowing your children the opportunity to get creative and start developing skills they will use as they grow up into adulthood. From reading instructions to learning how to bake you can turn tasks that may be quite mundane into a fun Christmas activity that will be bound to get your children excited! Why not try biscuits which they can then decorate afterwards?
Paint a plate for Father Christmas
Many families follow the tradition of placing a glass of milk and mince pie out for Father Christmas before bed on Christmas Eve, so why not encourage your children to paint a plate that can be used for the occasion? This is a great way of getting the children involved with the tradition, but also creating something with sentimental value that can be used again and again for years to come.
