Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Christmas traditions looked a bit different than usual. This has brought a big dark cloud to many of us since for some of us our plans have been canceled. Although this Holiday Season won’t be quite the same, try to make the best of it. If you plan to visit family please be safe and enjoy family time, which is what matters. It’s been a rough year so bring holiday cheers to your kids and family to get us out of the Holiday Blues.
I’m so happy the holidays are literary weeks away. As a mom, what matters is spending time with family and seeing the smile on the little one’s face especially during these crazy times. Whether you are a single parent or not, I will share memorable Christmas traditions to start with your kids. Christmas is about family and making memories that will forever be in your heart especially a kid.
You can start your own tradition with your own little family, believe me, they will thank you when they get older. In addition to our Latin roots, we started several Christmas traditions over the years introducing them to our son when he was a toddler. If you are looking for ideas to start Christmas Traditions here are a few basic memorable Christmas traditions to start with your kids.
Memorable Christmas Traditions
1. Christmas Decorations
Decorate your home with Christmas decorations. Many like to start on Thanksgiving and others on December 1st. Whenever you decide, make it part of your tradition to kick in the holiday cheer. Turn on your echo dot and jam Christmas Songs
2. Elf on the Shelf
This cute elf it’s an awesome way to kick off the holiday season with your little ones, whether is a girl elf or boy elf. Santa sends them from the North Pole on December 1st every year until Christmas day. How you want to plan the arrival of the Elf is solemnly up to you, with a full North Pole breakfast or goodies. We arrange his arrival with a letter from Santa and. In the letter, we make sure that Santa requests for the old toys to be placed in a box for donations. When The Elf arrive from the North Pole, we set up the elf door, with a complimentary breakfast and a little gift.
3. North Pole Breakfast
Setting up a Christmas theme breakfast is perfect to kick in the Christmas Season or you can make the Elf on the Shelf debut. You can be creative with the table decorations, napkins, cups, placemats, candy canes, donuts, cookies, milk, plates.
4. Advent Calendar
Create your own Advent calendar and fill it with fun treats. I started doing this two years ago and I love it. It’s a fun way to get your family, especially the kids involved in the countdown to Christmas. My only regret, I wish I would have started this years ago.
5. Gingerbread House
A classic and our absolute favorite. The Elf usually brings the box of the Gingerbread house and more candy and we make it Gingerbread decoration day.
6. Christmas Stockings
Decorate and personalized each Christmas Stocking with everyone’s name and hang them up.
7. DIY Ornaments
Every Year we create a special personalized ornament for that year. What I love about this family tradition is that after we take the ornament off we keep it in a special adorable box. My hope is that my son will cherish this box of personalized ornaments so he can pass the tradition to his kids.
8. Cookies Baking Set
This is one of my favorite, baking cookies for Santa. You can bring out the creativity of any kids when they are baking, decorating cookies, and making reindeer food.
9. Santa Letters
Have your kids write a letter to Santa and have them ready to drop it at Santa Mailbox.
