Happy December 1st!!
We are jam packed with parties and holiday get togethers but I wanted to take a moment to share some ideas to make this a December to Remember for you and your families! My husband and I just love this time of year and how magical it is for the babes. Although things may get crazy and everyone will be exhausted come January 1, it is so worth it to celebrate through the eyes of children. Here are a few ideas!!
Visit Santa! You may have to get up early. You may have to wait in lines. You may have to feed your children a million snacks to contain them. BUT it’s all worth it! We went over the weekend and although my youngest was not having it my son was just so precious to watch. Before it was our turn he was just mesmerized by the Big Man. Santa kept waving and giving a thumbs up to us. It seriously made my son’s day.
Make Fake Snow! Whether it’s a white Christmas or not your babes can enjoy some fun white stuff without hats or gloves. Mix equal parts baking soda & shaving cream and let them go to town! I found both items at the Dollar store!!
Elf on the Shelf. I know I know this is obvious as EVERYONE is doing it. BUT this was our first year and my son (3.5) absolutely loves it. He was shrieking with excitement when he found “Shimmy Coma” taking a bath in marshmallows over the weekend. He thought it was the funniest thing he has ever seen.
Christmas crafts! Make some gifts for their grandparents! My babes LOVE getting their hands dirty and creating something special.
New Jammies!! Our holiday jammies arrived the day after Thanksgiving. I wanted them to get a lot of use out of them! Plus, who doesn’t love new jammies?
A few other ideas I have for making this a December to Remember:
-Drive to see Christmas lights
-Read Christmas books and sing Christmas carols before bed
-Make crafts for neighbors & teachers
-Breakfast with Santa
-Donate old toys to families in need
How are you making this December to Remember? I’d love to hear!
