How do you make Christmas special?
Build a Gingerbread House
Gingerbread houses are a beloved Christmas tradition. Young and old alike get excited to decorate a gingerbread house and eat the fruits of their labor. They also serve as a great way to build memory-making experiences. Use your gingerbread house-making experience as an opportunity to talk about the real meaning of Christmas. Talk about the sacrifice Jesus made for us so that we can have a relationship with God. They also serve as great teaching moments. Children can learn how to make a house, icing, candy, and candies, and how to put the pieces back together after they are finished.
Give The Gift Of Music
Music is a great way to keep children entertained in the car or in the house. There are several Christian radio stations that can help you choose a Christmas-themed radio station.
Take a Christmas Light Tour
Take a drive down the country roads. Visit all the Christmas lights throughout the neighborhood. Look for a small village that has gone all out. Stop in a local candy shop and watch the children build snowmen or take a picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Have your children pose with Santa and Mrs. Claus for your Christmas card. Look at the decorations and enjoy the holidays.
Decorate the House
By now, you should have your tree up and decorated. It is the centerpiece of your Christmas decorations and can be made to resemble anything you want. Decorations of pine cones, colored tinsel, ornaments, and lights can be sprinkled around the tree or attached to small items to complete your tree.
Celebrate Christmas From the Heart
How do you make Christmas more meaningful and special for the person in your life who is the farthest away from you? Have you ever thought of creating a way to do something special for that person that might not seem like much, but could be quite meaningful? Maybe it’s baking a holiday cake for the senior citizen down the street who you don’t see very often, or perhaps it’s a handwritten letter telling your partner that you want to spend the day at the movies together. What about a babysitting job to keep that couple’s toddler for them for a few hours?
Choose “Hearts That Shine”
A small gesture can make someone’s day! If you know a neighbor who is struggling financially, take a few hours to make a nice meal for them.
