From party games and craft kits to sweet treats, here’s our ultimate list of the most brilliant Christmas ideas for children!
Best Christmas Ideas for Children:
- Bake Together

- Go on a Christmas Sweets Hunt

1. Bake Together
Everyone loves indulging in some delicious treats at Christmas, and what’s more festive than baking? Set aside an afternoon or two this Christmas season to bake at home with your children.
Whether you’re following old family recipes, trying out new ones from cookbooks or the web, or assembling an all-in-one kit like this awesome Ginger Bread House Baking Kit, you’re sure to have a jolly good time!
2. Host a Christmas Craft Party
Most kids love making things, and that’s why craft parties are a fantastic way to celebrate and prepare for the big day! This year, why not make your own Christmas cards? Or how about your own ornaments to hang on the tree? Some families also like to make gifts or stocking fillers to give to friends, loved ones and neighbours.
Of course, Christmas crafting doesn’t necessarily need to be practical–it can also just be fun, like this cool Miracle Melting Snowman kit!

3. Play Some Christmas Games
Christmas is a time for being together with loved ones, which also makes it a great time to play some fun games! Whip out all the old party classics like Charades, Pictionary, and Pin the Tail on the Reindeer. For slightly quieter nights, board games and card games make wonderful choices. Of course, if you really want to have a wild (and Christmas-themed) time, we recommend the O-Deer Crazy Christmas Game!

4. Go on a Christmas Sweets Hunt
Need a fun activity that you can easily do at home this Christmas season? Try a sweets hunt! Basically, this activity is an Easter Egg Hunt but themed for Christmas. Hide chocolate coins and other Christmas goodies around the house or garden and send children out to gather them.
To make it more complex, which is handy if you’ve got older children, you could design a scavenger hunt with a big grand prize at the end, like this incredible Milk Chocolate Game Controller!

5. Relax with Christmas Spa Accessories
Finally, while the Christmas season is loads of fun, it can also be very busy. That’s why it’s important to set aside some time to kick back and relax.
If you’re on the lookout for great gift ideas, most kids (and adults) will appreciate some luxurious items to use during an at-home spa night. Want to host your own spa night? Make it festive with peppermint-scented products, Christmas music and hot chocolate to sip. We also love these Father Christmas Bath Bombs, which come in an adorable Christmas cracker!
