December is all about fun, sun and not to forget red and green the colors synonymous with Christmas. It’s that time of the year again … to be merry and happy. Find out how you can make your Christmas magical…
With less than a week left for Christmas there sure is a lot of excitement in the air. Make your Christmas magical by adding some sparkle and charm to your celebrations along with your kids.
Here is a list of things to do things to make your Christmas magical:
- If you have not decorated the tree yet then don’t worry, run down to a gift shop which offer ready-made trees. Pick the one you like best. Buy some ornaments and lights to decorate it. In case you don’t want an artificial tree you could also visit a nursery to pick a tree of your choice. Once you get it home decorate it.
- Christmas is incomplete without the carols. Create a CD with all the carols in one place and you can play them on the Christmas eve as well as earlier.
- Watch some heart warming Christmas movies. The Polar Express, The Snowman, Elf and Miracle on 34th Street are some movies that create the magic of Christmas perfectly.
- Get your kid to write a letter to Santa, telling him that he/she has been a good child and deserves a big hug and a good gift. 🙂
- Ask your child to donate his/her toys (the one’s they have outgrown). Christmas is a feeling of sharing and giving … teach your child the same.
- Bake chocolate date and nuts cake, Santa’s favourite cake. Also, it is an easy way to make your kid eat nuts. A big slice of this along with milk taste awesome along with the goodness of raisins, cashew nuts and dates. You can ask them to help you while baking the cake.
- Get crafty with kids by making the Christmas ornaments, cards, bottle-cap and pom-pom snowmen, clay and paper wreaths, Christmas stockings, reindeer, and baubles and many more.
- Buy gifts for your loved ones. Pack them at home … ask your kid to help you with the wrapping of the gifts. You could personalize them with your child’s hand print or footprint (it looks like a reindeer – though you have to draw the nose and horns).
- Hang stockings for Santa to leave a present for you. You could get your child to make his/her own stocking.
- Last but not the least capture all the memories and make an album. You can keep seeing them day after day until next Christmas.
And since there are a few days to go so:
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
