With Christmas approaching (you can see we put our tree up this weekend), I thought I would do a quick round-up of past Christmas-themed posts on Adventures With Kids.
We usually create an Advent Activities Calendar with some Christmas fun for each day of December. It is a great way to really get into the spirit and make some time for Christmas play, rather than just being too stressed to remember to play with your kids.
Some other Christmas play ideas we have tried are a Christmas shopping centre Scavenger Hunt, Christmas Lego building, making Christmas crackers (bon-bons). These two posts – Christmas play for toddlers and preschoolers and the 5 senses of Christmas – also explore some ways to explore Christmas traditions with toddlers and preschoolers.
