Are you looking for something quick and easy to give the kids to do as things get closer to the Christmas season? Then you might like this printable Christmas activity pack. It’s got just enough activities to keep them busy for a little while, but not so many they are overwhelmed. And they aren’t schoolwork based, so they aren’t likely to groan when you put them out.
There are 12 fun activities – so if you are doing a twelve day countdown, or the 12 Days of Christmas – you can do one a day. Or you can do them all at once, or mix and match, whatever works for your family. All the activities have been tested by my eight and ten year old (one boy, one girl) for their stamp of approval.
