15 Fun Winter And Christmas Activities For Kids

This summer Tara from The Young Mommy Life and I gave you a list of 50 awesome activities for you all to do with your kids over Summer Break.  Summer is over and school is back in session.  However, the holidays are upon us and Christmas/Winter Break is literally right around the corner. 

If your kids are like Moo and JJ, two and a half weeks of nothing do will surely cause cabin fever and headaches for days for us parents.  So, I thought I'd create this 15 Fun Winter And Christmas Activities For Kids list to help provide some activities and crafts that will keep the kiddies entertained and you sane.  Enjoy and be sure share pictures if you do decide to try out one of the activities from the list by hashtagging them #YUMMommyChristmasFun!
