Christmas Activities for Kids

Letters to Santa

Writing letters to Santa is an exciting opportunity to show love and appreciation for all the wonderful things the year has brought us. It’s also a chance to share our hopes and desires for the upcoming year. 

For me and my daughter, Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa Claus, letters, and wishlists!

Christmas Ornaments are a joyful way to commemorate important moments in our lives. And when it comes to decorating the tree, I absolutely adore using homemade ornaments that my daughter has lovingly crafted. It’s not only a delightful activity, but also a special way for us to bond and create lasting memories together!

Christmas just isn’t the same without a homemade gingerbread house proudly showcased by my coffee bar! I absolutely adore the vibrant colors, the festive decorations, the delightful mess, and the sheer cuteness of these gingerbread houses! It’s so much fun to create and display them during the holiday season.
