22 Easy Ideas For Family Christmas Fun

Christmas is a time for families to make wonderful memories together. Our team at Heirloom Audio has compiled some of our favorites here to share with you…

  1. Bake cookies together. Then take them to neighbors and friends as a Christmas gift. Or give them to local law enforcement, firefighters, and others that serve your community.
  1. Make a Gingerbread House together. If you’re not too crafty, there are some great pre-made kits available to purchase.
  1. Get some friends and neighbors together and go caroling. Consider caroling at a nursing home or hospital as a service project.
  1. See a local production of The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol or other classic.
  1. Check to see if there are any seasonal concerts in your area. Many communities have free concerts this time of year.
  1. Ride around town and check out the Christmas lights. Then, let family members vote for a favorite.
  1. Make a Christmas music playlist that includes everyone’s favorites. Play it as you cook meals together and enjoy Christmas festivities.
  1. Serve together at a local food pantry, homeless shelter, or other place that could use some extra Christmas cheer.
  1. Read Christmas and Advent books together. Our family loves the Jotham’s Journey series of books by Arnold Ytreeide. We read one section each night before bedtime leading up to Christmas Day.
  1. Visit a tree farm and cut your own tree! Or just go and enjoy the atmosphere.

  1. Watch some old-fashioned Christmas movies. We like to have movie night at least once a week during the Christmas season.
  1. Make your own Christmas decorations – string garland with berries and popcorn, make paper snowflakes, paper garlands for the kid’s rooms, and add glitter to pinecones for a beautiful decoration … just to name a few.
  1. Purchase a gift for someone in need.
  1. Donate used (or new!) coats to a local agency.
  1. Give canned goods to a local food pantry.
  1. Write letters to those family members you won’t be able to visit on Christmas this year.
  1. Have a hot chocolate buffet! Include whipped cream, marshmallows, crushed candy canes, chocolate chips, cinnamon… Get creative!
  1. Use an Advent Calendar or make a Christmas Countdown calendar with the kids. Let everyone take turns pulling off the number each day.
  1. Perform Random Acts of Kindness when you can – such as paying for the person behind you in the drive-thru, or leaving a little extra tip money for your waitress.
  1. Visit a live nativity.
  1. Make a birthday cake for Jesus.
  1. Use our salt dough recipe and make some homemade ornaments to keep or give away.
  1. Have a fancy dinner night – everyone dresses up (princess ballgowns are a-ok!) and dine by candlelight on Mom’s best china!
