Christmas Activities

Standard

It’s the month of Christmas and anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE Christmas and it has gotten all the more special with two kiddies in tow!

This December on the days I have Josh with me I wanted to plan fun festive activities for us to do. The idea stemmed from Mom Fitness Diary-check out her very cool advent calendar here

Here are some of the ideas I have, some for home and some getting out and about…

Giddy Studios Decoration Painting

We did this on Tuesday and Josh loved it. They are offering a take away Christmas Jumper decoration for 6 euro until 10th December bit you can also do a glazed decoration for 12 euro and either one is a fun activity with a lovely keepsake at the end too. 

Check them out here: Giddy Studios

Library for Christmas Books :

We had started doing this in recent weeks and now up until Christmas we are going to make a couple of trips to pick up a few seasonal reads and get us in the mood at bed time. Another fab idea is a book avent calander, see below but I wasn’t organised enough this year! 


Christmas Films in our Christmas Jammies with Treats:

I’m secretly really looking forward to this in my head but in reality Josh may not want to sit around all day and Max might have a craknky day but if it does work out before the Christmas madness begins we will grab some festive flicks, stay in our seasonal jammies and have a few extra treats, throw on the fire and cosy up for the afternoon. 


Gingerbread Baking:

Josh remembers this from last year so we will be doing this again this year and here is the recipe we use.

Christmas Crafting:

Here are some of the ideas I hope to do with Josh… 



Some of our other family outings I am looking forward to are:

Santa @ Powerscourt 

Reindeer Run

Snowman @ Bord Gais

We do also love a fun Christmas App in this house {Santa calling is a big hit at the moment} and a few that were favoured from last year are:

There is also a new kid on the block which is for slightly older kids but a really fun idea:
