You don’t need me to tell you that the holidays are an incredibly busy time of year, especially in families with children of preschool age or older.
Not only do you have your own festive obligations and Christmas shopping to attend to, but you also have your kids’ school holiday shows, teacher gifts and Santa visits.
But the magical parts, the parts that they’ll remember and perhaps even insist on doing when they become parents years from now, shouldn’t involve so much rushing or busyness. They should instead bundle up as much of the Christmas wonder as you can muster, and allow for a special break from the consumerism and chaos.
We’ve come up with 7 magical new traditions to start with your family to make this festive season special. Scroll through the arrows above for some inspiration.
