Christmas bucket list

You *may* have spotted that we are a bit of a Christmas-loving website. We have added a good few Christmas resources in recent weeks. Today, we are giving you a Christmas bucket list. A list of things to do/spot/try in the run up to our favourite season.

Some of these are for you as parents, some for the family as a whole, and some, just because….

What is on your Christmas bucket list?

We have included all of the following on our Christmas bucket list – what would you add? Do tell us on Facebook or Twitter won’t you?

What is on your Christmas bucket list
  • Build a snowman,
  • Send a letter to Santa,
  • Go ice skating,
  • Volunteer at a shelter,
  • Cut out snowflakes, you could even draw a snowflake and THEN cut it out,
  • Decorate a Christmas Tree, perhaps even our wonderful papercraft Christmas Tree to Decorate?
  • Make Hot Chocolate,
  • Donate to a charity, perhaps even to our charity through our donation options? We give 80% profit to charity anyway on the site, but every little helps,
  • Host an ugly sweater parter – or make your own winter doll!
  • Kiss under the mistletoe,
  • Donate a toy to a local toy drive, or charity shop,
  • Wear family Christmas pyjamas,
  • Family photo shoot,
  • Decorate a gingerbread house. And if you want the perfect gingerbread recipe, we’ve got it for you!
  • Do a random act of kindness, and if you are stuck for ideas, do check out our Kindness advent calendar for Christmas,
  • Call long distance family,
  • Sing Christmas Carols,
  • Bake Christmas Cookies, why not try these fabulous Glazed Sugar cookies, or perhaps this Christmas Tree fudge?
  • Go on a sleigh ride,
  • Relax by the fireplace,
  • Have a family Christmas movie night, and
  • Drive around and go and see the Christmas lights. You could even do out Christmas Scavenger hunt while you do!

KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10.
