After being locked inside for the past few days, due to a crazy ice storm, I was desperate to find Christmas activities for kids. I’ve been struggling to find thing to keep my little ones entertained. Well, let’s face it, it’s hard to keep anyone entertained for 4 days inside the house. 

I’ve surveyed some of my blogger friends and pulled together 21 Christmas activities for kids. I’m looking forward to trying these out and I think you’ll like this group, too!
