With Christmas just around the corner, here are a few ideas that you and the kids can do to get ready for the big day!
First of all, you should find out if you are Naughty or Nice ! There are so many cool safe internet sites that have great Christmas games, activities and so much more!
Here are a couple that we found:
You’ll want to get started early on your letter to Santa this year so he will have time to write back!
Visit the Canada Post website for more information on how Santa can write back to you! Too late to get a letter back? Not to worry! Santa is now online and can answer your emails (who knew they had wi-fi in the North Pole?) You will get an instant response and can even watch a video e-mail from Santa himself! Another special way to connect with Santa is by phone. A website has been set up where you enter your information and you will get a call from Santa!
Holiday treats are always a favorite. Baking is also a great way to hang out with the kids and have some fun. Make sure to let them help with the measuring and reading the recipe (they will be learning and they won’t even know it!) There are so many great recipes on the internet. We like these Reindeer Pops made with Rice Krispies! Try to choose something special that is not too hard, or chose a few and let the kids select what one they like! Make sure to have lots of different candies and sprinkles to decorate!
Another great idea is to have the kids create a box, tin or jar to put the cookies or treats they have created in! They can make it their own and give them as gifts instead of buying something for grandma and grandpa, their brother or sister or even their school teacher. Most dollar stores carry inexpensive containers that are perfect for decorating! Click here for some fun ideas on how to decorate your cookie jar!
Don’t stop at baked goods! There are plenty of crafts that kids can make for their Christmas gifts! Find more ideas here!
