Grandkid's Christmas Day Camp.... 2010

Are you looking for some fun activities to do with the children you love this holiday season? How about some inexpensive homemade fun? I just hosted our annual Grandkid's Christmas Day Camp and this is what was on the schedule and some of what was not on the schedule.

Gathering project: Fringed fleece scarf

Picnic lunch

An Arizona Winter!

Unplanned shaking of fall leaves from trees!
The kids ran from tree to tree.
"Papa shake it!"

Giant Gingerbread Village 

Unplanned turns running Papa's remote control car.

The biggest cousin gave rides around the back yard.

Playing in the fall leaves barefoot in December!

Jingle bell necklace using Ho...Ho..Ho... ribbon

Cool Christmas painting pad. Paint right on the page and
you use a Q-tip as your brush. (Michaels)

Hungry campers polished off a full pan of 
lasagna and 2 loaves of bread.
Christmas cups and straws added to the fun.

A kids joke book, a coffee table stage, and you
have self made entertainment!

Getting ready for a night time ride in 
the back of Papa's truck through 
our rural community for a
 Christmas light scavenger hunt.

We sang Christmas carols and wished neighbors 
who were outdoors a 
very energetic Merry Christmas!

Tailgate party at the end of a very dark road.
Papa brought his lantern
and read the children a book.

Tailgate refreshments were donuts and milk.

Our final craft and activity was on
the true meaning of Christmas.

More details to come when time permits.

Don't forget about the Ho...Ho...Ho..liday Giveaway. Check it out today!

  1. I want to come to your Christmas day camp. :) I love your Christmas weather there. I enjoyed the ideas you had for your grandchildren and hope to do some those with my own grandchildren. They all looked like they had such fun and are a very handsome bunch. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! :)

  2. Thanks for the ideas, I will have my two grandkids for two weeks and have been trying to come up with enough things to keep them busy, and to give them memories of happy times as well. You always have the most wonderful ideas, and you are a true blessing to all of us out here in blogland.Keep up the wonderful work!

  3. What an absolute fun day, jam packed with activities. I love the nativity ornament.

  4. The kids were obviously having a ball! Some planned activities and some spontaneous ones make a perfect mix!
