Looking for fun things to do this Christmas? Check out our ideas for festive activities the whole family can enjoy
Make a Christmas Eve box
Christmas Eve boxes have seen a huge boom in popularity in recent years and are a fun way to celebrate the build-up to the big day itself. Our Christmas Eve boxes can be kept to refill year after year. You can have fun creating them and thinking up ideas for what each member of the family might want in theirs, whether it’s a story book, set of PJs and reindeer-ready carrot for the little ones or a tipple and box of chocolates for mum. Read our Christmas Eve box feature for more ideas of what to put inside.
Games and puzzles for all ages
After spending a rather large proportion of the year indoors, your current game and puzzle selection might be wearing a little thin, which makes this a good time to treat the family to some new options. Whether it’s good old-fashioned bingo with a Christmas twist, a brain-twisting family quiz or a pretty winter wonderland puzzle, the simple things are often the best for bringing young and old together at Christmas.
Festive baking and foodie treats
Baking is a fun way to get the kids involved in helping to prepare for Christmas, from decorating the Christmas cake to making treats to give as gifts to teachers, friends and family. Shop bakeware online or in store and pick up all your baking ingredients in store. Our Percy Pig baking set contains all the ingredients you need to make Percy Pig cupcakes together and our Santa’s sack of Christmas treats includes a Christmas biscuits baking kit – just add butter, golden syrup and water to make a batch of biscuits to hang on the tree.
