Christmas Bucket List

We have had a fun time crossing off items from our Fall Bucket List this past month so I decided to make one for Christmas. Since it's only a month away, I tried to keep things simple by including items that were normal activities for us each year. I've learned the last couple months that having a bucket list every season helps me be a better Mom. I feel like the responsibilities of Motherhood make it so easy to feel run down, moody, and have no ambition at times. Having this list creates excitement not only for my kids, but for me too. It gets me moving on some of the days that I would rather just sit in my sweats all day and do nothing.
 

I live in Utah so the "Elves at Gardner Village" is something specifically for my area. If you live in Utah and are interested in printing one out for your family, you can find mine HERE (My blog name is not on the printable).
 
I made another one switching out the Elf activity for "Drink Hot Cocoa". You can print that one out HERE.
 
 
Do you have a favorite family activity during the Christmas season?

Love the list idea! Growing up we all got together with our family and would made ginger bread houses out of graham crackers. It was fun when we were little because we each got to make our own, and if a wall broke it was no biggie because we had plenty more to go around!

I love the idea of a seasonal bucket list! I'm going to have to implement that in our home. The Christmas bucket list is great. I wanted to do an activity advent calendar in addition to the Truth in the Tinsel program I'm doing for my kids but I think this will be just as great.
