I did something fun last year.
And if you know me, you know that’s kind of a rare statement.
With this poo-storm that is Corona, my kids have handled disappointment after disappointment like champs. I wanted to do something fun and special for them, but at home.
So I decided to throw them the best Christmas in July Amazon could deliver. We tried to take all things Christmas but make them summery.
We put up Christmas patio lights … but inside because of the weather.
We got a cheap tiny light up tree.
We ordered snowflake window clings to make some wintery magic.
We hung a little felt Christmas Tree and let the kids decorate with the included velcro ornaments.
And our kiddos favorite decoration: the Santa toilet cover (no we did not use the actual seat cover because #NASTY.
We ate fun foods like Cajun Ginger(bread) Cakes for breakfast and frozen hot chocolate in the afternoon.
Instead of cutting out and baking sugar cookies, we cut out Jello Jigglers and decorated with sprinkles.
We played fun games like smash the Rudolph pinata, built foam gingerbread houses, and made glittery Christmas ornaments.
They even got to open one present each.
It wasn’t a HUGE and elaborate day, but with 45 minutes of decorating, and 10 minutes of prepping the Jello the night before, the kids sure had a magical day.
