It’s the most wonderful time of the year! It’s also a time when the kids are out of school, everyone is staying inside more, and there always seems to be endless things to do! Christmas can be a little stressful, so we got ten great activities listed here to make things a little easier for you around the holidays. There are activities to keep your little ones busy while you can do the important things Santas needs to do, and also festive activities you can do as a family to celebrate the season.
There’s nothing like a festive puzzle to get into the holiday spirit, it’s the perfect cozy activity when the snow is coming down and there is no where to go. Download and print out simple puzzles inspired by our music video for Up On The Housetop for a little family activity, or for some great independent play for your little ones.
The holidays are a great time to practice some skills, like drawing. Check out our Santa episode of Super Simple Draw to learn how to draw Santa! You can follow along during the episode and then keep practicing to perfect your new Santa drawing skills.
