51695-img_0058Tip 3-

Don’t save all the fun for Christmas day.

Make things fun along the way. Christmas can be anti climatic for children. They are taught that this big glorious day is coming when Jesus will be born in a manger. There’s a tree with presents. Dinners. Rushing around. The schedule is upset. Kids are cranky. Cramming everything into one day is just too much. Spread out the fun. Get some Christmas books. Read them for bedtime stories all month. Go ice skating. Make a snowman. Have some regular old board game fun on a weekday afternoon.
