25 Christmas Family Activities

25 FUN Christmas Family Activity Ideas to help start new traditions, make fun memories and make December merrier!

December is my FAVORITE month of the year!

So much music.

So much yummy food.

So many traditions.

The list goes on and on, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I know it’s kinda crazy and busy and can be stressful, but I try to do as much as I can to make it a stress-free month. That doesn’t mean it’s not crazy, because it usually is, but we like to fill it with traditions, service and fun family activities.

Just a few days ago I blogged about our 25 Days of Service, and we are so excited to do that again this year. We are also excited to do some of our favorite Christmas Family Activities. Some are as simple as writing letters to Santa and driving around looking at Christmas lights, but all are so fun and bring our family so much joy. I know as new families or even just getting to a point where you are looking for new family traditions, it’s sometimes nice to have these ideas in one spot. With that in mind, I had Kendra compile a cute printable with all of our favorite family activities. So many fun things to do, and I can’t wait to get started. We may have written Letters to Santa for Family night this past Monday. 😉

Here’s the list…
