I have a few days over Christmas and I want to do something really lovely with my two dcs (6 & 4).

I am limited with regards to doing traditional family stuff because my own family isn't really about and I'd like to take them somewhere that we might all have a memorable and happy time together.

Their dad will be taking them for a few days after Christmas to his parents and I know that they will have a fab time there and it will be very family oriented and traditional smile

Since this will be our first Christmas since separating it is all a bit new and I don't want it to be sad for anyone. sad I am hoping we can spend Christmas day together (x-dh, dcs, me) at least.

Any ideas as to great xmas ideas/events/locations/theatre/arrgh anything?


Panto tickets
Visit santa's grotto somewhere
Ice skating (if any near you)

Where do you live?
Book the pantomime for Xmas Eve!
I've booked Breakfast With Santa at Warwick castle which sounds excellent!
Go to London/other big city to look at lights.
Set a special Xmas eve tradition - ours is special new Xmas pyjamas , sprinkling Reindeer food outside and all snuggling down to watch a special Xmas film, this is after polishing some red apples for Rudolph and setting out some snacks etc for the Big Man in Red - on lovely plates the DCs decorated when they were small!

You could go to a local farm which has reindeer and see Santa.

or to a potery type place and let them decrate their own plate to eat their Xmas dinner off - they could also do one for you and their dad which would be lovely in the circumstances.

Hope you ahve a lovely Xmas - it was our 1st one after separating last year and it was much better than expected - XH didn't see them on Xmas Day he had them Boxing day. Kids were so excited they didnt really notice their dad wasn't there!
