The holidays are so much fun, but can also be so busy. 

And I know there are things my kids love to do at this time of the year (and also activities they'd rather skip in lou of more holiday fun)!

For kids, something as simple as playing a holiday game together or building a snowman is what makes it a 'jolly time of year' for them. 

In order to give my daughter more of a voice during the busy weeks ahead, I created a set of Holiday Coupons that she can use for her favorite activities.

Holiday Coupons for Kids

While there are many actvities that we do together this month, they are usually planned for ahead of time.  It's those quick & simple things that can get forgotten -- and yet, those are the ones that seem to make the biggest impression when kids are young.

I've learned that the busyness of the season will quickly distract me from taking time to connect with the kids.  I always think "I should be baking those cookies" or "Gifts need wrapping" -- but really I'm a kid at heart (aren't we all??) and love taking the time to enjoy these seasonal activities together.

Holiday Coupons are for items that we may not 'schedule' -- for example, having a pj day or watching a holiday special -- things that I know she enjoys and would love to do.

These are spur-of-the-moment activities that really don't need to be planned -- you can give kids these coupons and let THEM choose which they'd  like to use since there's not much planning or prep involved.

Ahhhh .... simple fun!  Don't you just love it!

Holiday coupons can be hand-written on festive paper or printed up on your computer.

To make life easy for you (because I KNOW it's busy right now ;) here's a free printable set of coupons for the activities shown above in case you'd like a few quickies to get you started!

You can also use the fronts of old holiday cards by cuttng out part of the picture to use as the coupon and printing the activity on the back.

 

Here's a list of ideas for everyday activites kids will enjoy during the holidays:

•  Spend the day in your pj's

•  Choose your favorite holiday book to be read by your favorite person

•  Spend the afternoon outside in the snow

•  Make some hot cocoa in the middle of the day

•  Check out the holiday lights (walk or ride, your choice)

•  Play a card game or board game

•  Help Mom or Dad wrap holiday gifts for someone

•  Dance to Christmas music in the living room

•  Help to open any Christmas cards that come in the mail this week

•  Let's bundle up and go to a playground

•  Wear your Santa hat while we run errands today!

•  Make some paper snowflakes

•  Homework's much more fun with a candy cane in a cup of cocoa!

•  Watch your favorite holiday movie with the family

•  Help to put the stamps on and mail the Christmas cards

 

Remember that many times, it's the little things that kids remember about the holidays.  So, relax and let your child take the lead in some of the fun!
