Get Christmas-Crafty

Christmas is a fantastic time to teach children about the values of family and gift-giving. In a world full of iPads and technology, it is even more important to share sentimental moments together and teach your children about the magic of meaningful gifts.

The best way to do this is an afternoon of Christmas crafts! With Christmas shopping season well on its way, spending this early festive period creating Christmas gifts with your children is time well spent with family. Whether you opt for designing your own Christmas fairy wings or create your own jewellery you have the perfect creative family activity which will leave you with a sentimental gift afterwards – your children are sure to love these craft sets this festive season.

A Night of Entertainment

If you’re fed up of every member of your family spending time in their own bedrooms, it may be worth organising a family night of entertainment and fun in the front room for vital bonding and festivity. What better way to get the family together than a fun-filled karaoke evening featuring the best Christmas songs?

Whether you are a classic Grinch or an enthusiastic Buddy The Elf, you can’t deny your love for Christmas songs and with this Bluetooth Karaoke Machine, you can have a fun-filled evening of karaoke competing which is sure to get the festivity flowing throughout the entire family!

 Keep it Classic

We underestimate the power of a board game. In our society, we are at a great risk of losing all things educational and traditional to iPads and YouTube. It’s down to you to keep some tradition in your family life and there’s no better way to do this than a board game night.

This Egged On Board Game is sure to get the entire family laughing (and potentially someone covered in egg). The aim of this game is simple, crack one of the eggs onto your head and if it splatters, you’re out! A hit with the kids, this board game is perfect to pass the time on Christmas Day or any family night.

If you want to feel even more festive, this Christmas Train Set complete with realistic sounds can offer plenty of family fun with light and audio effects to entertain younger children – once the train is set up, you can add it to your Christmas tree for a festive feel!

We hope that these festive fun activities inspire your Christmas spirit and offer plenty of quality time with the family. Whether you have older children coming home to stay for the festive season, or you’re looking to create unforgettable memories that will last throughout the year, the best way to do so is through family fun.
