I'm trying to think of things to do this evening, tomorrow and Christmas Eve to get in the festive mood! We have a 2.5 year old so toddler-friendly activities would be great as well as grown up ones after his bedtime!

Would love to hear some ideas! fsmile

Watch Christmas movies : Arthur Christmas for your little one

Take him to see the Christmas lights in town & Santa if you haven't already

Last night at bed time o told my kids to put thier dressing gowns on and get in the car, we went for a 15 min drive around the nearby town looking at all the xmas lights on the houses. Kids loved it.

We wrote 5 Xmas cards saying something like 'thank you for making such an effort with your Xmas lights. We love how festive they look' and my 6 yo and 2 yo signed the cards.

We then went on a 'Xmas light safari' and chose 5 houses with the best lights and posted a card through their doors. The kids loved it and it was a lovely, festive activity.

One of the households reciprocated by popping a card through our door with some tree chocolates, thanking the children and saying it had made their day! Will do it every year now I think.

We decided to watch Arthur Christmas on Netflix as you suggested and it was great - first time my toddler has sat through a feature length film and enjoyed it! Was so snuggly all 3 of us on the sofa under blankets fsmile

I am sure we'll do some of the other great suggestions tomorrow!
