5 Ways to Enjoy Christmas Day with Your Kids

Christmas is a time to make memories with the people you love, not just sit in front of the TV or on your computer. You don’t have to spend every day indoors all holiday season just because it’s Christmas.

Start gathering ideas for activities that everyone will enjoy, and then go ahead and take action on those ideas. You might find that these sorts of activities are enough to make Christmas a festive event of remarkable proportions. 

You can do numerous Christmas-related activities with your children throughout the wintertime, and some of them will be great fun for all involved.

1. Decorate Your Home Together

Decorating the house for Christmas is something that everyone can get involved in. Even kids who are too young to help with decorating themselves can still be a part of this project by making drawings or artwork with which you can decorate the home. This is something they can get involved in throughout the year, but it is a fun activity you can do during Christmas to create a child-friendly environment. 

You can decorate the house using safe materials, like glitter and markers, or you can just put up some decorations without harmful chemicals. Some families prefer to leave their Christmas decorations up all year round; others do this only at Christmas. Either way is acceptable, but it’s essential to ensure everything is clearly labeled so everyone knows what each decoration is for.

2. Read Stories Together

Christmas is a perfect time to read together, and this is something that both you and your kids should enjoy. Reading together is a good bonding experience for all involved, whether the book is fiction or non-fiction. If you’re reading fiction, it’s important to ensure that the stories are appropriate for your kids. Some great children’s books are suitable for young readers, and they can still enjoy them while they hear a simple story read by their parent or guardian. 

If you have children too young to read, you can still easily involve them in the reading experience by telling and talking about the story. You can tell them they will be on the page and have their voice in the story. You could even give them a word or two to say or ask their favorite questions. The best Christmas read alouds for kids should include a moral lesson and Christmas spirit.

3. Go Shopping Together

Shopping is something that most people love, and Christmas shopping is even more fun than other kinds of shopping because of how festive it is. You can go shopping with your kids, whether buying Christmas gifts or food or decorations inside the house. 

Getting out into the public makes it more exciting and festive, so it isn’t just a shopping trip like any other day. You don’t have to go out and buy a lot of things, but you can go around your town and look at all the different Christmas decorations that are out there. You might even find some great Christmas shopping opportunities for yourself.

4. Do a Fundraising Campaign

Many families take on fundraising campaigns during Christmas when people are more likely to be generous with their funds. This fundraising campaign could be to raise money for a local charity, a school fundraiser, or a bake sale to raise funds for new toys or costumes for a play production at school. Whether you support a local cause or make your fundraising campaign is up to you, but it is an excellent way for your family to get involved in the spirit of Christmas. You’re also giving back to the community and helping others simultaneously, which is a great Christmas tradition for all involved.

5. Go Out for Lunch

Christmas is all about having fun with the people you love. You can make plans for lunch at a restaurant or go out to eat if you have time. It is about making it a fun, active day, so everyone involved has a great time together. This activity also allows you to do some Christmas shopping while getting out and enjoying the outdoors too. You don’t have to go out and buy presents, but it is nice to have this option available if you want it.


We all want our kids to enjoy Christmas, but we also want to ensure they are protected from any negative aspects of the holiday. Making Christmas fun and upbeat while still keeping it wholesome is the best way to avoid any major problems. You will have a great time with your family if you plan and ensure everything is taken care of in advance. You don’t have to throw the whole family into a full-fledged Christmas party, but it is good to ensure that the kids are included in some way.
