25 Days of Christmas Activities

Here is a list of 25 Christmas activities you can do with your kids this season to celebrate the magic of the holidays.

Updated November 17, 2022

The holidays are always a special time, especially with little ones. Everything is so beautiful and so magical. But it’s entirely too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season; before you know it, Christmas has come and gone. So this year, I am creating a list of 25 Christmas activities for the whole family to help us slow down and just enjoy the season. Much like an advent calendar, we will select one activity for every day in December (leading up to Christmas itself). Some of the activities are just silly and fun, while others are more meaningful. We would love to have you join us!
