How to Celebrate Winter Break
If you are an elf on the shelf mom or enjoy surprising your children after school with celebrations, you’ll probably like this idea.
First, as a mom and foster mom. I pride myself on helping my kiddos to celebrate the small things and the big things in life.
As we all know, kids grow fast!
With that said, each time my son or daughters get a longer break from school.
I try to celebrate it in a fun way.
For example, when summer break comes around, I love to go all out with signs, slushies, and other fun ideas here!
How to Make Christmas Break Extra Fun
This year we took Christmas break to another level.
First, we created a Christmas tree out of recycled boxes.
This budget-friendly Christmas tree consists of empty boxes and green gift wrapping paper.
Of course, adding a DIY star at the top is a must too! 🙂
Next, we just stacked the boxes in a tree-like form.
This made it easier to build the tree right before the kiddos got off of the bus.
DIY Winter Break Activity
As a result, moments after getting off the bus. The kids each took turns running through the red streamers and knocking over the Christmas tree.
Marking the moment Christmas break officially started!
Oh, what fun it was for each one of my littles to celebrate having a break from their teachers, homework, and school.
A little winter celebration that cost next to nothing to do but something so fun and that they’ll get to remember forever.
Now that winter break has officially begun we will be setting goals for the New Year, taking adventures, creating art, and eating cookies!
