Santa Writes a Letter

A fun activity is Santa Writes a Letter, which is a small letter from Santa that you can get for your children. With the pandemic happening, keeping the Christmas magic alive can be stressful, but this is a fun way to do it. You can get this for your kid, and it will make them feel like they really got a letter from Santa at the North Pole. It’s a fun, simple holiday activity that children will love, and it’s a great way to get into the spirit of Christmas.

Bake Together!

Baking Christmas cookies is so fun! And, of course, it’s a fun holiday activity for you and your child! You can bake some yummy treats together, and you can get everyone in the family involved in decorating and making amazing cookies. Plus, you’ll get to eat your delicious treats!

Baking cookies is a fun, COVID-safe activity that you can do at the house. Not only is it a fun little way for you to improve your morale, it’s also a good way to prepare for Christmas.

Get a tree and Decorate

Some people say you shouldn’t decorate too early. But with the stress of this year, I don’t blame anyone for getting that tree up and keeping the magic of Christmas alive.

Even getting a real christmas tree is a fun adventure you and your family can try together. You can get a tree, get some fun ornaments, and decorate while listening to your favourite holiday music. This is a good way to get everyone involved, and also is a fun way to keep the Christmas magic alive.

Getting into the semantics of when to put your tree up is tiresome. If you want it up now, then there is nothing stopping you.

Get a Gingerbread Kit

A gingerbread house kit, or even different variants of different gingerbread types of kits, is a fun way to get the whole family together and working on it.

These gingerbread kits are simple to do and are fun to engage in. You can decorate them as much as you need to, and there are a lot of cool ways that you can. There are so many different types of gingerbread houses to choose from, and you can build the best gingerbread house out there for you and for your family.

Make Fun Christmas Accessories

Christmas accessories are super fun. From hairbows, to necklaces, to even getting some socks to decorate them with, it can be a fun way to really make things enjoyable for many.

Making Christmas accessories is a fun way to bond together, especially as a COVID-safe activity.

Make Homemade Ornaments

You can also make homemade ornaments if you have boys and they’re not interested in the idea of making bows and necklaces.

Getting simple ornaments and different projects together can make a fun afternoon of holiday decorating. Homemade ornaments are a wonderful way as well to create something magical, and you can give it to them when they get older. A fun little gift and something to reminisce.

See Christmas Lights

Finally, there are still lots of Christmas lights to see even during the pandemic. You can drive over to different places, and of course, look at these fun lights.

There are some Christmas light shows, some with music attached to them, and some you may be able to walk around and see from a safe and socially distanced location.

Christmas lights might seem trite, but it can be something that’s perfect for the family, and it’s a good way to keep the magic alive. Those twinkling lights, the way that it shines, can be a good way to keep the Christmas spirit going.

Take Care of Your Mental Health Too

While keeping the kids happy is important and keeping everything together in the family is probably at the forefront of your mind, you need to take care of your mental health too.

You should get help if you’re stressed out, and talking to someone can be beneficial to your mental health. You can go to Mind Diagnostics to find out how you’re feeling, whether it’s depression, stress, or something else. From there, you can get the help that you need, even during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

The holidays are hard for many, and sometimes figuring out COVID-safe activities can be hard, but these holiday activities are right there, and fun for you to do with the whole family too!
