December can be full of adventures and fun while counting down the days until Christmas.
Here are some suggested fun activities you can do as a family during December.
Make a variety of cookies and decorate them!
The holidays are not complete without cookies. I look forward to December to embrace the taste of pie and cookies. Try different types of cookies and decorate them. Pull out your best recipes and make sugar, ginger, peanut butter, and anything else that comes to mind.
Write a letter to Santa
Writing a letter to Santa gives kids the opportunity to practice writing and spelling. Get special Santa stamps and stationery and craft a really nice fancy letter to Santa.
Get crafty and make holiday cards or make holiday decorations
Holiday cards do not always have to be mailed. If you are hosting a holiday party or dinner allow the kids to handcraft holiday cards to distribute during this special day. Another idea is to put together a few fun holiday craft projects.
Plan your New Year Eve Party
After Santa comes and goes it will be time to start planning to celebrate the new coming year. Think of different themes and decorations ideas to plan your New Year Eve party.
