It’s wonderful to take your family to the movie theater during the Christmas holiday break, but this could also be a good time to catch up on the videos that have come out for rental during the holiday season. NetFlix even lets you rent DVDs online and there’s no charge for late fees
Another great and frugal way to entertain the family through the holidays is to take a drive around your town, or another one nearby, to see the Christmas lights!
Get out the board games, the kids will love spending time with you. If you don’t have many to choose from, maybe you can borrow a new game from a friend or neighbor. You never know, they might have a closet full they never even use!
Playing cards is always fun too, even when the kids are little you can play Go Fish…
Sing, sing, sing! Many churches and groups even have caroling get-togethers in December, what fun!
Sit around a warm fire, or cozy up in the living room with blankets and hot cocoa. Tell family stories… or have everyone take turns saying how they have been blessed throughout the year, like we do at Thanksgiving. Being thankful shouldn’t end in November, keep the spirit going!
Have a family gathering to decorate the tree, wrap gifts, or bake cookies.
Check out a Christmas book from the library and read it together as a family. Or, decide on a story and have everyone contribute a chapter to create a new Christmas book… maybe even one about your own family!
