Hooray! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Get your whole brood in the holiday spirit with these 30 festive (and pretty much free) family activities.
Go for a stroll or a drive-by—it's delightful either way.
Let the kids art direct.
One adorable army of sugary snowmen, comin' right up.
Or you know, an evergreen forest.
Preferably while wearing festive pajamas.
Bonus points for enclosing confetti in the envelopes.
Warm fuzzies, guaranteed.
Hot ciders in hand.
And let the kids pick one to make.
“See how little Nana was!”
Aka The Nutcracker and The Polar Express on repeat.
Be prepared to have "Jingle Bells" stuck in your head until March.
Let the little ones take turns stirring.
The more baubles, the merrier.
Teach them the meaning of giving.
Totally OK to use a store-bought kit.
Nothing better than Home Alone on a crappy winter’s day.
Don’t forget the woolly mittens.
And learn about how other cultures celebrate the season.
With backyard treasures like pinecones and acorns.
And be sure to document the hilarity.
And have a cozy day of holiday tunes and hangin’.
If you’re lucky enough to have some. (Sledding! Snow angels! Snowmen!)
And do your best to manage their expectations.
Popcorn cranberry garland time.
And be sure to visit your elderly neighbors.
Go ahead, buy the big guy.
Downright magical—no matter your age.
