25 Days of Christmas Activities + Free List

November 9, 2018Autumn

Christmas is all about the memories we share with our families! As a holiday tradition as a family for the last 4 years, we have made it an annual experience to countdown to Christmas Day. We really love the holidays and having a countdown is our way to have a little bit of the holidays each day.

When it comes to the holidays and our 25 days of Christmas countdown, I make sure to carefully construct the list so it’s not about getting gifts at all. It’s about seeing the wonder and surprise each morning on the kid’s face but also learning lessons through the activity and spending time together.

With many of my family members including my mom and dad not living in the same state as us, we aim for the holidays to be close together as a family. Some of my kids’ favorite activities over the last few years have been the tree decorating, visiting a light festival, donating and seeing Santa.

The holidays are all about what you make it even when you might not have a lot to spend on presents. Kids will always remember how the holidays made them feel and providing some kind of joy if even in the simplest ways is a great feeling.

Our Mickey & Minnie Advent Calendar

How it works

My husband and I create a bucket list of things we’d like to do as a family. We put the little notes inside of an advent calendar like this and each morning the kids get to open and see what’s inside. Some days there’s an activity and some days we put little Hersey Kisses in there.
