The holidays are a special time of year for everyone and this is especially true for children. They see the holidays in a different light than we do and that can often make this time of year even more magical for them. Where we see the stress of shopping for the perfect gifts for everyone on our list and planning holiday parties and family get-togethers, they see sparkling lights, candy canes and beautifully wrapped presents with shiny bows.
But, sometimes, the holidays can start to lose its magic as our children become just as preoccupied as we are. It’s then that we have to step in and make the holiday season that much more special for them.
If you are looking for ways to make the holidays special for your little ones, keep reading for some tips that will show you how to do just that.
Ways To Make The Holiday Season Special For Your Little Ones
Bake Something- whether it snowman cookies, Rugelach, or their favourite holiday pies, baking with your children is always a lot of fun. It can also be a learning experience as you can show them, step-by-step how to mix ingredients, or teach them a Christmas or Hanukkah story while waiting for cookies to bake.
See The Holiday Lights- whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, the holiday lights are always a beautiful sight to see. Find a local holiday light show or a neighbourhood where the decorations are especially beautiful.
Make A Holiday Craft- holiday crafts are a fun way to spend a snowy day inside. Light up your walkway with Hanukkah luminaries, make snowmen out of construction paper and cotton balls or create a Santa Claus craft that you can hang on your Christmas tree. There are so many holiday craft ideas that you can keep your children busy well into the New Year.
Learn Holiday Songs- traditional holiday songs can be a lot of fun for kids to sing along to. Whether it’s Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, or the Dreidel song, everyone has their favourite.
Holiday Film- there are plenty of holiday films showing this season and children love seeing their favourite holiday characters while munching on some popcorn. Take in a holiday film and make this holiday season even more special for your children.
