I had the best intentions of a holiday fun bucket list. I planned to count down to Christmas with fun activities every day. Pinterest has exploded with fun advent calendar ideas. I love the ones with pockets or drawers to fill for each day of the month, and I wanted to fill ours with fun (and frugal!) family activities to do together as we countdown to Christmas.
Alas, December 1st came and went, and I never setup our advent calendar. The girls are counting down with math instead. Every day, the youngest asks me the date, then subtracts it from 25 to tell me how many days are left until Christmas. Still, there are so much fun of the holiday season that I don’t want to miss a thing. Enter the Winter Break Bucket List.
The girls get out of school at noon on Friday, beginning 2 weeks of winter break. With Christmas Eve following immediately on Monday, there’s plenty of time after Christmas to enjoy our family time. To be sure we squeeze in all the fun we possibly can, I’m putting together a list of family fun activities for our free time.
Here are 15 must-do holiday activities:
