It’s the traditions in life that make it sweet isn’t it? I love how excited my kids get for the traditions we’ve set in our family for Thanksgiving, for Christmas and year round. Christmas traditions with kids are so essential to building a strong family. Here are just a few Family Tradition Ideas for Christmas to get you started!
Fun Family Christmas Tradition Ideas:
Love, love, love this idea. I already told my husband about it and we are for sure doing it. Can’t wait because I know my boys will go crazy over it! It’s the Minivan Express from Confessions of a Homeschooler: (Update-we did and the kids went bonkers with excitement! SUCH a hit!)
We did this last Christmas Eve with my family and had a lot of fun! It’s Christmas themed Minute to Win It Games by On Cloud 8:
12 Days of Christmas with stories and coordinating treats from The Craft Patch. She’s got all the links to stories ready for you so it’s easy to pull off. Very fun idea!
A Christmas Storybook Advent from Katherine Marie Photography:
This one is very tender and sweet. A yearly letter inside a special Christmas tree ornament:
Do you celebrate St. Nick’s Day? It’s a fun one to do in early December:
And have you heard of the Christmas Pickle before?
This is my very favorite idea for an advent. It’s an activity each night counting down to Christmas:
I have to tell you about this book-The Christmas Chronicles. Our tradition is to read it out load as a family in the month before Christmas. It’s a really neat book!
And last, my family’s very favorite Christmas tradition is pizza by the light of the Christmas tree on the first Monday in December. On that night I give everyone a Christmas tree ornament that symbolized their past year.
I like to get them on etsy because they will often custom design them for me or just search the internet for the perfect one.
