8 Christmas Kid-Friendly Activities to try over Winter Break

The holidays can be a stressful time. And with kiddos at home for winter break, balancing family, work, and activities can be extra difficult! So whether you’re looking for ways to celebrate the holidays or just trying to keep the kiddos occupied, we got you covered. Here are 8 Christmas Activities to try with your little ones this winter break. 

Christmas Light Walk

What would the holidays be without all the twinkling lights? Take the time to admire the beauty and creativity of your neighborhood decor by going on a Christmas Light Walk. Not only will your kiddos be filled with holiday cheer (and maybe you will too), but it’s a great way to stay active during the winter


Whip up a healthy hot cocoa for the road to keep your body warm and your heart full!

Goodie Bags for Delivery Drivers

Do you love shopping online? Does the Amazon driver know your address by heart? If so, a healthy goodie bag is a great way to brighten up their day! And a perfect way to teach the little ones about giving and serving others. 

DIY Advent Calendar

An Advent Calendar is a special way to countdown the days to Christmas. And it’s fun! This DIY version has all the steps and even a video to help you and your family create your own. By making it yourself, not only is it budget-friendly, but you get to choose all the goodies for the day! 


Thinking of what to put in your Advent Calendar besides candy? We’re so happy you asked! Here are some ideas:

  • Bows and hair ties
  • Play-Doh minis
  • Small toys
  • A note from Santa & his elves
  • Stickers
  • Craft supplies

Send Letters Overseas

Many of our Armed Forces Service Members can’t make it home for the holidays. And a kind letter from a child brings holiday cheer and encouragement to a deployed Service Member.


Operation Gratitude makes it easy to send letters overseas. They have all the steps, guidelines, and even printable coloring sheets for your kiddos. 

Track Santa’s Flight

Did you know you can track Santa’s flight around the world? It’s true! Check out where Santa is throughout Christmas Eve night with the Santa tracker

Create Nature Confetti

If you’re looking for a biodegradable way to decorate the dinner table for Christmas, try Nature Confetti. First, make a wish list and send your little ones on a nature scavenger hunt. Here are some ideas:

  • Twigs
  • Leaves (lots & lots of leaves!)
  • Acorns
  • Pinecones
  • Grasses
  • Wildflowers
  • Pine Needles
  • Rocks

Next, decorate with all your kiddo’s nature treasures while setting aside half the leaves for the confetti. With a holepunch, or scissors, punch holes in the leaves to make your Nature Confetti. And last, sprinkle the “confetti” on the dinner table!

Make a Winter Bird Feeder

The winter season can be a tough time for a bird. Their natural food sources are depleted due to winter. And with limited food available, the competition (squirrels, racoons, etc.) is fierce! So, help a bird out this Christmas by making a Winter Bird Feeder. Here are a few tips and tricks for feeding birds in the winter


You can take this time to teach your kiddos all about the seasons and how animals prepare for the winter. 

Christmas Crafts

Christmas arts and crafts are always a fun way to brighten our holiday spirit! A few favorites are:

  • Ornament Counting Mats
  • Christmas Tree Noodle Artwork
  • Christmas Sweater Activities
  • Gingerbread House Crafts

We hope you have fun and make sure to share your favorites with us on Instagram @RenzosVitamins. We wish you a Happy Holiday Season!
