50 Fun Christmas Activities

Xmas can go by fast; before we know it, we haven’t made time for 50 fun Christmas activities for families. Creating an xmas bucket list is a great way to ensure you enjoy the season. You can make many other fun xmas printables to help with other xmas activities for kids, too. Please have a wonderful and Merry Christmas thinking about it.

There are many fun Christmas activities, but we often don’t make time for them. We think, “Oh, I’d like to do (blank) this Christmas,” but we don’t make it happen.

This is one of the main reasons I like to plan for the holiday. Despite my desire to do many fun things, the less fun things keep getting in my way. The more time I have for xmas fun, the better!

I like to create a xmas bucket list and stick it in my Christmas planner or on the fridge. It’s a great way to connect and start thinking about the season. It’s something you can do with the whole family.

We don’t always do all of them, but having the list helps us try to fit in what we can. We don’t want to cram in so much that we don’t enjoy it, but we also want to celebrate xmas as much as possible.

You can make your own bucket list, or if you get my Christmas Planner, a Christmas bucket list is included and ready for you to fill out.

Read this list and decide which things you want to try this year. You never know; some of these activities may become seasonal traditions.
