Christmas Family Fun At Home

I’m not sure if there will be too much going on this year in regards to the usual activities that are held for children when it comes to the festivities so I’m thinking ahead for December to make some more memories at home.

Here are some ideas to think about to have lots of fun indoors this season.


I know everyone is probably all baked out! But I have to say, I did enjoy it when we first went in to lockdown and remember thinking to myself, this would be great around Christmas with Conor and we can try some Christmas shaped cookies and gift them to our family and friends.

Watch Christmas movies – Create your own home cinema!

There’s endless options in movies now from new to old that are all so easily accessible.

Get the hot chocolate on, popcorn popping, matching  pjs and just enjoy each other’s company.

Dress up as Santa…

Ok maybe the older kids will guess but it would be a laugh for everyone if someone in the household dressed up as Santa for the smaller ones to recreate Santa’s workshop as I doubt we will get to take them this year!
