Fun Things To Do With The Kids At Christmas
Just an update on our 12 Days of Christmas competition we have been running all week. We have seen people winning Banaba bibs, booster cushions and other great gift but the festivities have only just started.
Today is a very special one for Minene as we are giving away one of our cosy fleece blankets to a charity chosen by you! We at Minene feel it’s important to teach our children about the importance of giving, especially at this time of year and out Santa’s Little Helper is very excited.
Giving is just one of the fun things kids can do to get exciting during the Christmas season, here are some fun activates you and your little ones can do during the run up to Christmas:
There are many charities to get involved with around the Christmas season, and as mentioned before it can be very rewarding and exciting for children to get involved with charity at such a young age. Some great examples are Crisis for Christmas which allow you to really get stuck in and work at homeless shelters feeding the hungry and clothing the homeless.
Another example is giving to GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital). You and your child can go out, choose present such as board games and teddies, wrap them up together and take them up to the hospital for the poor children who will spend the holiday in hospital. You also get a chance to play with the children as well which is always a bonus.
I like to call it Christmas cooking because you get to cook all types of Christmassy treats such as ginger bread snowmen, marshmallow snowmen, and Christmas tree cake pops. There are so many fun things to do in the kitchen and end up lots of Christmassy treats that look pretty in the house as well.
Making Christmas Cards:
Arts and crafts is always fun but even more so when its Christmas themed. With cotton wall snow men and Rudolph’s with glitter red noses you can really get stuck in and make fun cards, makes a change from the same old ones we get every year J
Pin the nose on the Rudolph! A Christmas rendition of pin the tail on the donkey. On a large piece of paper make a Rudolph face but without the nose. On red card cut out a circle to use as Rudolph’s nose. Get the kids blind folded and pinning the nose on the Rudolph, great for Christmas day as well!
There are lots of things to do over Christmas and keeping up with our 12 Days of Christmas is also one of them. Over the next 8 days we will be giving out storage baskets, bedding sets and so much more. So keep an eye out on our social media pages and click below to sign up for our emails updates.
