You just have to get a little bit creative! With these five fun ways to have a socially distant Christmas with your kids, your whole family is sure to have a memorable Christmas. These festive and fun socially distanced Christmas activities will help your family celebrate Christmas safely this year!
5 Fun Social Distancing Christmas Ideas to Enjoy with Your Family
Start New At-Home Christmas Traditions
Just because you can’t travel to see your family or invite friends over for a party this Christmas doesn’t mean your kids can’t make memories this year. Why not start new traditions at home with your family to make the holiday season special?
Traditions don’t have to be extravagant to make an impact on your kids.
Hosting a holiday movie night each Friday in December or making homemade cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve are both easy traditions you can do at home that your kids are sure to love.
Video Chat with Family
Visiting with family members who live far away is a big part of many people’s holiday plans.
And while you may not be able to see those loved ones in person, you can still make time to check in with them during the holiday season this year.
Schedule a video call with your family members to check in and celebrate Christmas together.
Add a Few More Decorations
Since your family will be spending a lot of time at home this holiday season, add a few more Christmas decorations to your house to make it extra special.
Brighten up the outside of your home with more holiday lights and add a few extra garlands to your mantle to spruce up the interior and make it more festive.
Your kids will love seeing all the extra lights and décor throughout your house.
Do Lots of Holiday Baking
Christmas baking is a great way to spend some time at home together with your kids.
Make Christmas cookies for Santa or create your own gingerbread house with homemade gingerbread.
No matter what you choose to bake, make it a fun family event to ensure you create some lasting memories with your kids this year.
Check Out Holiday Lights
Looking at holiday light displays around your town is another fun way to enjoy the Christmas season while social distancing.
Since you can stay in your car to view the lights, you don’t have worry about coming in contact with anyone else. And it allows you get out of the house for a little bit and enjoy each other’s company in a new location.
So, make some hot chocolate, toss a few extra blankets in the car, and take a trip around town to check out all your neighbor’s holiday lights displays while enjoying your socially distant Christmas this year.
