Building the Christmas magic in 2023 ❄️

If the magic doesn’t come itself, which I’m sure it will, here are some tips to building the Christmas magic in your little one.

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 a chocolate if you prefer. But something fun or tasty to count down the days to the big day!

Toucan box advent calendar chimney

Munchkin had a craft calendar from Toucan box which we didn’t use the year before 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 £200 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 in 2021 and again this year, as well as the National Trust Christmas lights.

Do some merry baking

Last year we made some ginger biscuit Rudolf’s and some chocolate cornflake wreaths. 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.
