Christmas is basically here. Today we got our tree and soon enough it will be Christmas morning. My kids are obsessed as they should be. And everyday its a request to do some other Christmas activity. as creative as I like to be I also love seeing what everyone else has come up with. So I scoured Pinterest to find the best Christmas kid activities and have compiled them for you here.

- We had 25 pictures of Christ. The children would take turns picking out one picture each night. We would read the story on the back of the picture, and then the children got to hang the picture anywhere in the house. After 25 days there were 25 pictures of Christ hanging through out the house. Our children n poo w do this tradition with their own children.
- Formal tea parties with fancy china. I started doing them when my girls were preschoolers and did them all through Jr High and high school. No one outgrows tea parties!
Also how fun are these photos I did with fellow bloggers, Sandy (who you have seen here and here), Blakely, Alycia, and Tori?! We got together to do this fun Mommy and Me holiday shoot and I love all the fun outfit ideas everyone came up with. Nora and I are wearing the cutest matching tops from Nora Madison Design. My red watch is my favorite item to wear this season from a rad local buisness called Arvo. My shoes are from Famous Footwear and are on sale! And my hat is from the dollar spot at target! Heck yah!
I hope your family enjoys this season as much as we do. I feel more of the Christmas spirit when I do these activities so I hope one of these ideas helps your home feel merry and bright! As always feel free to comment with an idea and I’ll add it to the list. And have a great rest of the week!
