There’s just something so cozy about getting in your Christmas pajamas and all snuggling on the couch for a good Christmas movie night with some snacks and hot chocolate. Whether you’re watching as a family or maybe getting some friends together, this is a fun way to celebrate the season and be cozy together.

Some of our family’s favorite Christmas movies are:

  • Elf
  • The Grinch
  • Home Alone
  • National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
  • The Polar Express
  • Jingle All The Way
  • Christmas With The Kranks
  • The Holiday
  • Charlie Brown Christmas
  • A Christmas Story
  • The Santa Claus

This year I decided to make some little movie tickets to up the ante on our Christmas movie night. They definitely make it more fun and bring that holiday magic. Whether you want to leave them as a gift from your Elf (if the Elf People come to your house) or maybe just treat the kids at the end of the week.

I put together a basket with supplies for our movie night like comfy blankets, of course popcorn, candy and some beverages. This would be a cute idea to gift to a family friend or just leave out and enjoy all season long and watch Christmas movies to your heart’s content.

To make this basket you will need:

  • a basket
  • a blanket
  • popcorn
  • M&Ms
  • popcorn containers or bowls
  • soda
  • festive cups

Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt Printable

Every year one of our traditions is to go drive around and look at Christmas lights. There are a few neighborhoods we frequent that always have a big spectacle. We get the whole family in the car including the dog, grab some hot chocolate and go for a drive.

This year I thought it would be fun to put together a little scavenger hunt to get the kids involved and make it into a game.

We drove around until we crossed everything off on our list.

So here’s your cue to go check out some lights and have a Christmas light scavenger hunt with the whole family.

12 Days of Christmas

12 days of Christmas ideas

This post contains affiliate links

This year I’m starting a new tradition for the holiday season – The 12 Days of Christmas. I have so many awesome memories of how my parents made the holidays magical for us growing up and I want to do the same for my boys. So this year, the 12 days leading up to Christmas, we are going to do something fun and festive every day.

For more fun Christmas ideas follow me on Instagram

Below I’m sharing how we are celebrating The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s a fun way to count down to Christmas. We do the traditional chocolate advent calendars too but this is more exciting! (If you’re looking for advent calendars, I’ve got some I rounded up here).  Now the goal is just to have fun and make memories with your little ones, not to add more stress to your already full plate. You can be as simple or as creative as you want.

How to plan your 12 days of Christmas

1.)  First, think of 12 fun activities that you want to do with your kids.

If you’re in need of ideas, check out our holiday bucket list below. (And if baking cookies is on your list, check out this list of 16 of the best Christmas treats!)

Christmas bucket list

 

2.) Write those ideas down or type them up on 12 separate pieces of paper.

3.) Next I got 12 boxes and placed a piece of each paper with an idea in each box. Then I wrapped them like presents.

4.) I numbered 12 gift tags and put them on each corresponding gift box and placed them under the tree.

 

How it works:

Starting on December 13th, each day leading up to Christmas we will open one of the gifts and do the activity inside. That’s it! It’s all about having fun with your kids and giving them something they will remember in years to come.
