Here it is – my Holiday Season Bucket List to enjoy with all of the family!
Donate foods to a food pantry – consider a reverse advent calendar where you pop an item into a box every day in December.
Build a blanket den in the lounge/bedroom and get snuggly!
Donate a toy to a child in need – there are various schemes – get googling!
Bake Gingerbread men or bake and decorate Christmas sugar cookies – Christmas cutters a plenty over on eBay.
Make your own Christmas cards – Poundland craft haul needed. Consider getting other children around and make an afternoon of it!
Send a care package to troops overseas – ‘Moralibo’ – consider Haribo as depending where they are based, chocolate can easily melt!
Winter walk wrapped up cosy to feed the ducks – avoid the bread. Most Garden centres have a wide selection of bird feed.
Do a good deed/random act of kindness for someone in need – give unconditionally with no expectations!
Go to a panto/ballet – to get in the spirit of things. We are off to see an insta pal perform in Southport Floral Hall.
Take a family photo – in tacky Christmas jumpers even better!
Write a letter to Santa in the North Pole – remember the Royal Mail scheme ends 6th December!
Christmas movie Marathon with popcorn and hot chocolate – Home Alone is a must!
Design your own Christmas jumper – grab and old Jumper & head to the craft kit.
Decorate a gingerbread house – Aldi usually sell these.
Make Christmas tags from last years cards – so much fun and satisfying cutting out.
Christmas story marathon by the fire – collect ALL the Christmas stories and off you go, lend some out or swap with friends!
Make a Christmas music playlist – the usual hits with Bublé in for good measure!!
Make Home made s’mores – Micro versions are where it’s at – two rich tea, a giant marshmallow & choc buttons.
Cut paper snowflakes – get yourself on Pinterest!
Go Ice skating – check if there is a pop up rink near you…
Would love to hear if you have a go at this!
