The Christmas season is here, and we know that finding activities to do with your little ones can be a bit of a challenge, especially finding activities that don’t cost you a fortune. To help, we’ve pulled together our top 5 favourite Christmas activities for the whole family, that will make even the Grinch-hearted among you feel like kids again!
1. Christmas Baking
There are so many simple and festive recipes out there that will fill your home with the smell of Christmas cheer! You may think your only option for a Christmas treat is cookies, but there are so many more treats you can make. Take a look at these festive recipes that the whole family will love.
2. Ice Skating!
Gather up the family, bundle up and head out to your local ice rink for one of the best winter activities there is! Top tip – if you can, you may be able to prebook your ice rink trip which could see you saving some money. Take a look to see if your local rink has family tickets too as this often gives you a discount rather than buying tickets individually.
3. Matching PJs
There are few events in the year that call for matching pyjamas, but we think Christmas is one of them! Most clothing stores will have Christmas pyjamas in sizes for the whole family, so be sure to shop around to find your favourites. If you’re wanting to save some money, consider getting plain red or green pyjamas and customising them yourself – you can even personalise them with each family member's name using glitter pens!
4. Make your own festive photo booth
A DIY photo booth is much more fun than you may think, and the perfect way to create amazing memories for years to come! Head to your local craft store or garden centre and grab some props like signs or headwear, or repurpose some old decorations that you aren’t using this year! A festive tablecloth can make a great background for photos. Then all you need to do is set up your camera or phone and say “cheese!”
5. Go Sledding!
When the snow starts to fall, there is so much fun to be had – but after the snowman has been built, what do you do next?! Well, any hill, snow and a sledge will give you hours of fun. Bundle up, grab your sledge and head off. Make sure you’ve got your sledge ahead of time so you don’t miss out on any fun when the snow starts to fall. Thankfully, we have sledges available from just £9.99!
