10 Things To Do With Kids In The Run-Up To Christmas

Tomorrow is December 1st which means the countdown to Christmas is officially on! We couldn't be more excited at Gigi Brooks HQ, especially as we're busy sending out an array of gorgeous gifts that we know will bring plenty of joy this festive season.

It goes without saying that you'll want to make this time of year particularly special for your little ones. There's so much magic in the air and so many wonderful ways you can make memories with your family.

However, if you're short of ideas, we're here to help! Here are ten things to do with kids in the run-up to Christmas...

1. A Christmas lights tour

Whether you simply explore your local area or travel somewhere that's well known for its festive illuminations, bundle up warm and your little ones will love it!

2. Hot Chocolate

Treat them to a decadent mug of hot chocolate, complete with whipped cream and marshmallows.

3. Homemade Wreath

Try making a Christmas wreath. Ask your local florist for supplies or let the kids forage for evergreen branches and pinecones.

4. Ice-skating

Plenty of outdoor rinks pop-up at this time of year and many of them have special skating aids for children.

5. Baking

Have some festive fun in the kitchen! You could bake Christmas cookies, make mince pies or try your hand at building a gingerbread house together. Our Vintage Baking Kit will make it even easier to cook up a storm with the kids!

6. Christmas Films

Build a blanket fort {our Sweet Dreams blanket would be perfect} and settle down for a Christmas movie night.

7. Christmas Performances

Attend a Christmas concert. A trip to the ballet is also a good idea, especially if The Nutcracker is playing!

8. A Festive Family Photo Shoot

Make it a tradition and use the images for your annual Christmas cards.

9. Board Games

Spend a quiet evening playing board games. A Christmas Tale would be ideal. Why not listen to a few festive tunes at the same time?

10. Visit Santa of course!

If you've got time, why not take a trip to Lapland?

What do you love doing with your little ones at this time of year?
