Looking for fun family ideas this Christmas? No need to spend tons of money or travel to faraway places, just play family Christmas Games together! The friendly competition will create great memories and nourish quality time, rather than filling the Christmas Season with busyness.
Are you seeking a calmer Christmas? A Christmas that is less about a full calendar, and more about quality time with family? I’ve found that being intentional in prepping for at-home Christmas activities is the key to actually spending time as a family during the holidays. In anticipation of this year’s holiday season, I’ve created several Family Christmas Games to have on hand at our house.
And, if it’s too late… if Christmas is almost here, tuck several games into stocking stuffers! Then, once all the gifts are opened on Christmas Day, you’ll have a set of fun family games to play together.
