Best Christmas Activities for Kids (with free printables)

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

I absolutely LOVE Christmas. I am going to share with you the best Christmas activities for kids, plus the best gift ideas.

We are totally Christmas crazy.

We put the Christmas tree up the weekend after Halloween, and we have the Elf on the Shelf visit in December. This has been a tradition for about 8 years now, and despite our son knowing that Twinkletoes is not real, it makes it even more magical, not less.

The Christmas activities for kids are broken down into the following sections:

  • Gift guides for the whole family (but mainly gifts for boys)
  • Countdown to Christmas
  • Elf on the Shelf printables and activities
  • Christmas games
  • Christmas worksheets for school
  • Christmas arts and crafts

There are lots of Christmas activities for both younger and older children, so I am confident you will find something you will enjoy.

These Christmas activities for kids are great for the classroom, homeschool, the library, or at a Christmas party.

We homeschool year-round check out all of the other holiday fun we have.

If you homeschool as we do, or your kids go to school, you can have loads of fun with the kids in December. Other fun holidays we celebrate this month include:
