5 simple ideas for Creating Christmas Memories to last a lifetime with your kids

Making Christmas Memories to last a lifetime with your kids

Christmas is a time to create life long memories for your kids, remember those little things from your own childhood above the gifts that you got or the food that you ate. Here are some ideas for Creating Christmas Memories that will last a lifetime for your kids.

1. Bake together

Baking with grandparentsEach year we make mince pies as a family – all around our kitchen table each helping to make them and then we enjoy eating them together. But my own memories as a child are with cooking with my grandmothers making Christmas Cake and Christmas Pudding. J started his own traditions back in 2011 making Reindeer Cupcakes with his Nana and T has since joined in.

2. Start a Holiday Breakfast tradition

Christmas Breakfast Tradition

 

I love this idea from Play Trains creating a Christmas Breakfast tradition – there version is the Holiday Breakfast Train but imagine the possibilities that you could explore with your child and their interests. Even though I’m really not a morning person I think that we will be doing something like this on Christmas Eve this year.

3. Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve Surprise BoxThe busiest day of the year for us is Christmas Eve I try my best to get as much of the jobs done as possible, peeling vegetables, baking muffins for Christmas morning decorating the Christmas Cake and Yule log etc… and that leaves a little time to spend with the kids. Two years ago The Imagination Tree posted about their Christmas Eve Surprise Box and it’s something that we have done since. This year ours will contain pj’s, a movie, new Christmas Book, makings for some snowmen cupcakes, ornament to decorate and stuff to make a hot chocolate with.

4. Decorate their own Tree

We have a real Christmas Tree in our living room which the kids help us decorate but a lot of the ornaments are precious to us with memories associated with them so we also have a mini child height Christmas Tree which is in our dinning room that the kids decorate. The ornaments are all from the pound store (dollar store) and if they break are easy to replace the kids can decorate the tree and over the festive season they have and will redecorate it time and time again.

5. A Family Walk

Creating Christmas Memories to last a life time like a family walk after Christmas Dinner check out the other ideas to make Christmas memories with your kids this year.

Yes the Christmas Dinner is heavy and I know many many families that spend the afternoon sitting with the ummm older members of the family falling asleep so why not create a memory by having a tradition of a after lunch walk. It’s free and you may be surprised at how many other people will also be doing the same.
