Christmas Fun in 5 – Easy & Fun Activities

I received product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Christmas is just a few weeks away and for us, it is all about family time. We are so busy throughout the year and with the kids off of school and my husband taking some vacation time, we try to take advantage of spending time together. My new year’s resolution though is to have more family game nights especially now that my youngest is old enough to play more games. I mean I love Hi Ho Cherry O but there is only so much I can play.

Our most recent family game night consisted of Giant Toppling Timbers which was nice because it was a game for all ages in my family.

What is great about game nights is that they are fun, cheap and includes everyone. You can rotate out games, have someone new choose a game each week or invite new friends to play. We honestly have an overflowing closet of games, many of them are not even opened yet. I feel like I have failed as a parent as my kids have not played even some of the classic games like Yahtzee or Pictionary.

To get my family started on our game nights, we were given a few classic games to get started. My kids were excited for some new games!

Catholic Central has come out with a fun Christmas Fun in 5 sheet to learn some cool facts about the “whys” and history behind some of the most time-honored Christmas traditions and some quick family-friendly activities!
