We put the Christmas tree up the weekend after Halloween, and we still have the Elf on the Shelf visit in December. This has been a tradition for about 7 years now, and despite our son knowing that Twinkletoes is not real, it makes it even more magical, not less.
The Christmas activities are broken down into the following sections:
Gift guides for the whole family
Countdown to Christmas
Elf on the Shelf
Christmas arts and crafts

We absolutely LOVE Christmas in this house, so much so that we start decorating the house the weekend after Halloween. All of our birthdays fall between Thanksgiving and New Year so it is our favorite time of the year. I thought I would share our favorite Christmas countdown ideas that we have been doing over the years.
Christmas planning is the only way I survive Christmas every year. By the beginning of November, I pretty much have it all organized. Even if it is just all in my head, I know what is happening. There is also a free 23 page Christmas planner you can download and stay organized this year.
We absolutely love Christmas and every year we try and find the best advent calendar ideas for both kids and adults. In this guide, you will find kid’s advent calendars, beauty advent calendars, DIY advent calendars plus more.
Yes, it is coming up to be the most expensive time of the year. So let’s look at how to earn money before Christmas. There is still enough time to make that extra couple of hundred pounds that makes all the difference.
Elf on the Shelf
We have had the Elf on the Shelf visit us now for over 7 years.
See all of the best Elf on the Shelf posts we have, including free printables, games, books, and the best Elf on the Shelf antics.
Christmas is a time for the family to get together and play games and just have fun being together. These are the best Christmas games we have either come across or created as free printables just for you.
Get into the Christmas spirit with these 5 Christmas spot the difference printables. What I especially love about these is that they are not too easy, or too hard. They are just perfect for older elementary kids (in fact we have enjoyed them in middle school too!).
Are you tired of the kids being bored at the dining table while you are busy making the Christmas dinner? You are not alone!! These Christmas placemats to colorare the answer you have been looking for.
Whether you homeschool, or are a teacher looking for educational Christmas activities you will find something here the kids will love. All for free of course.
In December we tend to put away the core curriculum we have been working on, and instead focus on Christmas activities! Now, of course, I try to make these as educational as possible! These Christmas lessons are aimed at kids aged 9-14, but with help can be done with younger children.
Christmas is soon to be upon us, and I don’t know about you, but in December most of our homeschool days revolve around Christmas!! As such I have created these free Christmas writing prompts for you to have fun with.
This Christmas word scramble is a perfect example of some of the fun we get up to in December. This free printable Christmas word scramble is great either for the classroom, homeschool, or even winter break if the kids are a little bored. There are 13 Christmas-themed words to unscramble and to help out I have included the answers in the download.
Christmas is our absolute favorite time of the year. Mainly as we put away our core curriculum and just spend time together learning about the holiday, and just doing Christmas-themed activities. Every day we also have Christmas read alouds.
If you are in a rush and tired of searching for Christmas handprint templates you can purchase all of mine for a small fee here. There are 4 exclusive templates that can not be found anywhere else, and 12 pages to print!
Christmas will be here before we know it. It is one of our favorite times of the year to bring out the paint and get creative. Download our free gnome handprint template below and create a wonderful keepsake.
