Building the Christmas magic ❄️

As if the magic doesn’t come itself, but if you need any tips, here is how we went about building the Christmas magic in a 3 year old?.
Start building the Christmas magic by decorating the tree ?
Get them involved in decorating the tree. They will put everything in the wrong place and you’ll have to re-do it when they sleep but they will appreciate the process and it’s welcomes the start of the rest of the festive fun.
Visit the big man
Be it Santa, Old Saint Nick or Father Christmas. Get a visit or two in, and make sure you see him when he comes down the street. It helps build the huge festive fib and gets them excited for their main pressies.
Get an awesome craft activity advent calendar with a kind elf
Or chocolate if you prefer. But something to count down the days.
Munchkin had a craft calendar from Toucan box which we didn’t use last year which has been great fun, with books, baking and simple Christmas crafts.
It also came with a kind elf. No pants on the tree or flour all over the kitchen here!
Don the festive clothing
Christmas jumpers aren’t just for one day, get all the festive gear on all month. Useful when you want to save £2000 on your energy bill too! Oh, and get the whole family involved.
See some Christmas lights
Explore a local woodland with a Christmas light experience. I recommend Sandringham Luminate which we visited last year, but this year we are trying out the National Trust and a local small route (below).
Do some merry baking
We’ve made some ginger biscuit Rudolf’s and some chocolate cornflake wreaths so far this year. Munchkin loved both the making, and the munching!
Set up a Christmas eve box
As a final little excitement before the big day, set up a Christmas eve box, with Pj’s, a book and a Christmas mug. The perfect end to a build up before the big day.
