First there is the excitment of opening presents Christmas morning! Then there is a big fancy family breakfast, then a car ride to the grandparents’ house, seeing cousins, a few more presents… and then there is a lull in proceedings while adults rush around trying to get food ready for Christmas lunch…
It is during that ‘lull’ that the whining kids sometimes appear.
“When is lunch?”
But this year I have a secret weapon! I am armed with a bundle of easy printable activities for the kids to do on Christmas day! No more bored kids while they wait for lunch to be served!
I also suspect these activities might buy the adults some after lunch siesta time too!
Here are ten awesome ideas to keep your kids entertained on Christmas day…
