Celebrating Christmas in July gives children a chance to enjoy summertime with a unique holiday twist. With school out, you can have some good ol’ family fun with Tree Classics’ six simple Christmas in July activities with the kids.
1. Have a Snowball Fight
Keep the kids happy and busy this summer with this new take on a classic winter game. Have a friendly snowball fight with family and friends but instead of using snow, you can use white balloons filled with water. This is a sure-fire way for the little rascals to keep cool this season.
2. Decorate Christmas Cookies
Whip up a batch of crunchy sugar cookies or oatmeal cookies and decorate them as Christmas tree ornaments. You can make stars, snowflakes, or angel-shaped cookies dipped in confectioner’s sugar for a snowy effect.
3. Watch Christmas Movies
After a tiring day of playing outside, give the kids some time to rest and unwind by letting them watch their favorite Christmas movie. Set up your DVD player and put on films such as Frozen, A Christmas Story, Home Alone, or The Grinch. Kids will enjoy the spirit of the holidays even in the middle of summer.
4. Make a Snowflake Factory
Dreaming of a white Christmas in July? Help bring the magic of snow to your summer holiday party by teaching the kids how to make beautiful DIY snowflakes. All you need are a pair of kid-safe scissors, snowflake patterns, and a few coffee filters.
5. Craft Holiday Reindeer Hats
Let the youngens dress up as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer with these adorable hand-printed reindeer hats. Have a craft table set up and show the kids how to make their own pieces. You can even throw in a prize for the best looking reindeer hat.
6. Light up Sparklers
Enjoy the clear evening sky by taking the kids outside and letting them light a few sparklers. This will also get them excited about the real holidays by the end of the year!
This summer, Tree Classics invites you to spend time with the family and try these fun kid activities to celebrate Christmas in July. Have a merry summer-y holiday!
