Christmas is a time of joy! We rejoice at the true meaning of Christmas, that the Lord Jesus Christ was sent to this earth as a baby, who would grow up to be our sacrificial Savior.
It’s wonderful to have activities during the holiday season that reflect our joy and light-heartedness. I thought I would share with you a couple of fun things that our family has done in the past. I am in the process of organizing the millions of pictures on my computer. So I will share a couple photos with you that give ideas for fun times.
This is my daughter-in-law, Emily. As you see, we made “snowmen” with long pretzels, candies, and icing. The ones she is holding happen to have a Mexican hat theme, but the possibilities are limitless.
I have lost my recipe, but click here to see a similar one.
This activity appeals to all ages and gives guests something fun to take home. The works of art will last a year or two in your Christmas box, just to look at…not to eat, of course!
Balloon hats are great fun. As you notice, there are no young kids in this group. There’s my mom who is in her 90’s and the rest of us “kids” having a great time. And of course, little kids adore this activity. This was not Christmas (I know that because my neighbors are in the picture), might have been Thanksgiving, but it would be a great Christmas craft! Balloons can be bought at the Party Store and often come with instructions.
So come the new year, I’ll actually be writing some blogs with actual content! I’ll look forward to “seeing” you then!
Have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New year 🙂
By the way, if you have some ideas to share, leave a comment for this blog and let other readers in on your joyful times!
