Start some family traditions – One great way to help children feel engaged in the build up to Christmas is to get them involved in family activities. Like a special night when you decorate the tree together, or they help put the stamps on Christmas cards, or a weekly Christmas movie night.
Get them gifting – Kids love feeling like they have responsibility, so let them help decide what gifts they give to relatives and siblings.
Buy them an advent calendar – Nothing makes it feel like Christmas has come early like an advent calendar, and especially when it’s one of the super cool designs on the market these days. For an idea of what to buy, check out Gurgle’s roundup of the best advent calendars for kids. Whether your child loves colouring, Lego or toy cars, there’s sure to be one they’ll love.
Get crafty – Christmas isn’t all about spending money, and actually the most fun part can be when you’re all together relishing the small moments. Like baking cookies to gift, making your own decorations, and writing the all important letter to Santa.
