Another way to have fun with these ideas is to write them out on a piece of paper and place them in a jar. Then when your kids are bored or you have some time and want to do something Christmas-related, select a paper from the jar!

The checklist version is perfect for placing on your fridge and checking off with a marker as you go!

Or frame it and place it in your kitchen for some daily inspiration!

The calendar version is a fun one to cross off each day as you attempt a different Christmas activity on the list! Don’t worry if you forget a day, you can always skip one or play catch up the next day!
