School’s out for the holidays and kids are full of good tidings and cheer! Help get your family in the holiday spirit by creating simple, yet heartwarming traditions. These kid-friendly holiday activities for all ages will give you quality time with your kiddos without breaking the bank.
Make Popcorn and Cranberry Garlands
Add some homemade charm to your Christmas tree this year with a cranberry and popcorn garland! All you need is a needle, some thread, fresh cranberries and popcorn. Have your children count out the berries and popcorn to make a fun alternating pattern designed by them. Not only will it add some holiday flare to your tree, but it is delicious as well!
Holiday Lights Tour
We all have a Clark Griswold or two in the area that go above and beyond with their Christmas lights. Grab some hot cocoa to-go, pile the kids in your car, play some festive music and drive around neighborhoods that are known for their spectacular light displays!
Bake Christmas Cookies
Time to dust off those old family recipes and start baking some yummy holiday cookies with your loved ones! Sugar cookies, spritz butter cookies, gingerbread and thumbprints— there are just too many tasty holiday cookies to choose from. Nothing beats a little holiday music playing while you bake cookies in your pajamas. Your kids can help measure ingredients, stir the batter, decorate and most importantly, taste test along the way!

Cuddle up with your kids for an afternoon or evening watching Christmas movies to really get you in the holiday spirit! Let each family member choose their favorite movie to make it extra special. With all the craziness the holidays can bring, a little relaxation is exactly what Santa ordered.
