Countdown to Christmas Activities {Free Printable}

I’ve got another FREE printable to share with you today! 

Last week I shared with you a printable workbook so you could plan out what you want your holiday season to look like. I want you to think about all the things you love (and don’t love) about the season and plan accordingly. I mentioned that you may want to include some fun activities with your kids but that you want to make sure you have what you need for those things – it lessens the stress when you are prepared! But how do you do that?

Keep the holidays filled with joy and keep your sanity at the same time! {Free Printable Holiday Planner}

How many of us are filled with good intentions when it comes to the holiday season but either plan too much, forget what it was we really wanted to do, or wish we would have done just a little bit more? I’ve been all three of those people! 

There have been years where my to-do list for the holidays is a mile long and I stressed myself out trying to bake thirteen different types of cookies, attend six parties in a matter of a week, and make or buy gifts for everyone under the sun. Then there are years where I knew there was some really awesome thing I saw online the year before only to have no clue what it was by the time the season rolls around again. And then the years where the season flies by and I barely did anything but decorate the tree!

The holidays are approaching and the gift giving season will be here before we know it! I’ve shared already how we keep our spending in check during the holiday season but before you start spending the money you’ve budgeted you need to have an idea of what to spend it on! 

This year we have two two-year-old boys to shop for in our own family plus a nephew that will be two in early spring. We’ve also had three other kids turn two in our parenting years 😉 What are our go-to toys? What do we recommend time after time?
