Making the Most of Your Kids Christmas Vacation

website translator plugin


Making the most of your kids Christmas vacation might sound like an impossible task with all of your other holiday chores. Making the right activity choices might keep you on schedule and keep your kids’ Christmas vacation full of holiday spirit, a season full of giving.

The first activity you may want to get out of the way is the traditional cookie baking. There are many fun and easy recipes that can yield quite a few little delectable treats. If you have baked three to four different looking treats, you can fill up a small paper dessert plate. 

You can also let them wrap the dessert gift plates. Use some decorative plastic wrap or cellophane and some holiday ribbon or bows. Make enough plates so each child can take at least one tasty treat to a neighbor or special friend.

Making the most of your kids Christmas vacation is all about making them get the spirit of Christmas. Many stores, school districts, or churches have an Adopt-a-Family Christmas-gift-giving campaign. This is a wonderful way to teach your children about giving, budgeting money, and people who are in need. You receive the ages of the children in the family. You can assign each child their own child to give to, and shop for. When you get to the store give them the money they have to spend along with the wish list from the child. 

Your child will see how hard it is when you really want to buy something for someone, but you do not have enough money. Your child will also make choices about what is a really good purchase. Watching their faces when they finally make their choice is priceless. It is a much different experience leaving the toy store on that day.

An experience that your kid’s will remember forever is one of hands-on giving. Find the nearest homeless shelter or food kitchen near you and ask what they do for holiday dinners. You will find that there are many volunteer opportunities for the entire family. 

Another way to find the true meaning of Christmas may be when you and your family go to the local food kitchen to pass out Christmas dinners to those less fortunate. Many of the people that come to eat are families. Tell the shelter you want to help and they will find a way that works for you. This can provide a meaningful, valuable experience your kids will always remember, feeding the homeless at Christmas time could be an outing of a lifetime.
