Here are four things you can do as a family to keep the little ones happy.
Go To See A Show
There are many shows that are suitable for families to go to at Christmas time. You could take a visit to Broadway and see a show there or venture out to the theatre for a fun family film.

Disney On Ice is a family outing suitable for all. Everyone will fall in love with the music and dancing, and let’s not forget the characters. So if your little one is a fan of all things Disney then be sure to amaze them with this.
Nothing says Happy Holidays quite like a family greetings card with an image from the family photoshoot. You can arrange a photoshoot any time of the year but they are extra special at Christmas time. You can dress up all nice and even have pictures taken in the snow if you are lucky enough to have some. Even in a studio photographers have lots of amazing props to use to capture you and your family having a great time.
Around November and December time you have access to loads of Christmas Markets. Here you and your family can have a mooch around, try some new foods, and check out the huge variety of gifts they have available to buy. Usually, at Christmas markets, there is also a grotto where the kids can visit Santa and tell him what they want for Christmas. This is a great way to find out what they really want from Santa.
Why not make it your family mission to visit all the Christmas markets in the nearby areas and neighborhoods. Usually, at markets and outdoor events, they have ice rinks as well. Ice skating is a great family fun time. Don’t worry about the little ones not being able to do it either, they have some aids that can be used to steady them on the ice.
See The Lights
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without venturing out to see the amazing Christmas light displays that many towns and states have to offer. Many of them have special events where they also do the light switch on at the same time. There may even be a light competition in neighboring areas that you could go and look at. A great way to make it a little competition could be to each pick a house that you think will be the winner and then see which one actually wins. If one of your family picked the winner they could earn a prize.
