Other than when the twins were really little we have never lived anywhere that had a fire place. Which, at Christmas, invariably leads to questions about how Santa is going to bring his gifts. This year I found the greatest “Find me Santa Snowflake” at Walmart.
The snowflake has a place on the front to write your child’s (or family’s) name. Then you push the button on front to make it light the way for Santa to find you. Which also makes it perfect for families that travel somewhere for Christmas, Santa can always find you. We hung ours on the front door to our apartment.
Our snowflake came as a combo with the Once Upon A Northpole Christmas story book (the combo is exclusively at Walmart). We’ve been reading (and rereading) the story about spreading holiday cheer. Youngest Twin is getting really excited about his winter break from school, and I want to make sure we have lots of holiday cheer while everyone is home together. The kids all love playing games, so I’m preemptively getting ready for us to play lots of fun games. The Northpole collection at Walmart came in very handy for that as well.
While it’s usually dangerous to let your brothers throw things at your head, the Peppermint Fling Rings Game makes it fun. But Youngest Twin did laugh at us when we missed.
While we have had snow on Christmas in Texas, it’s definitely not a regular occurrence. So I made sure to pick up some Snow Now. I mean, clearly we aren’t having snow currently as Littlest is wearing a short sleeved shirt while he’s playing with the only snow we’ve seen so far this winter.
The Avalauncher! Our kitchen bar stools have come in really handy for using with the Avalauncher (also exclusively at Walmart).
And we’ve created the holiday version of hot potato with the Magic Snowball (only $2.97 at Walmart!) We make the snowball glow by throwing it and then pass it around the circle. If the light goes out while your holding it you’re out.
The great thing about the games is that they are things that the kids can all do together.
Are you a game playing family? What are your favorite holiday games?
I love that you are planning ahead and coming up with a bunch of fun and festive activities for the Christmas break! These are definitely fun and I will have to remember to do “hot snowball” with the kids–they’re getting a magic snowball each in their stocking! #client
