In our church, we are encouraged to spend time on Monday evenings with our families. It’s really up to each family how they choose to do it. Some have a gospel centered lesson, some work on their families’ emergency preparedness, some go out to the movies or somewhere fun. I love it because there is really no right or wrong way to do it as long as you spend time with your family! How great is that!?
The reason I bring it up today is because I’d love to share what we plan on doing this month for each Monday. For the rest of the year, I will plan our family’s “Family Home Evenings” around teaching my kiddos (2 and 4 years old) about CHRISTmas!
I plan to incorporate a Chirstmasy lesson and do a Christmas craft or recipe with them. Tonight, we are going to talk about the Christmas Star and why it is our tradition to place a star on top of our Christmas Tree. We are going to make this handprint Christmas tree that my son has been dying to make since we bought a canvas and paint on Saturday. 🙂
Here are some other super fun Christmas crafts and ideas for kids!

I hope you and your little ones can try a few of these and make the Christmas season extra special!
