Christmas Gift Wish List For Kids Printable

Christmas Gift Wish List For Kids Printable

The holidays will be here before you know it! I don’t know about you, but my daughter is already adding requests to her Christmas list and it was hard to keep up with so I made a Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable so I would be able to keep up with what she wanted when it was time to go shopping. (Black Friday anyone?) We keep her list on our fridge so that way when she thinks of something she wants she can add it to her list, but she has to be picky because there are only 10 open slots for wishes. So I wanted to share with you the list I made, feel free to print it off and use it for your kids too!

Here is my Christmas Gift List For Kids Printable for you:

Holiday Tradition Ideas For Christmas

Family Holiday Tradition Ideas

Family holiday tradition ideas for Christmas

Why do they grow up so fast?  When did it all happen? When did those hands go from stubs that surrounded one finger? When did those hands grow bigger than yours? When did your heart get up and walk on the outside? When did they go from tiny people who needed everything from you to someone who knows what they want?

Why do I spend so much time trying to create family traditions? I do it because I want to make memories with my children. These are some Holiday Tradition Ideas For Christmas.

Family holiday tradition ideas for Christmas Santa HQ

The first one has been going on from before they remember. I would buy them each a special outfit. Then I would bundle them up wrapped in layers of clothes. I would pull into the mall parking lot. I would unload them. Then I would wait in line so they could see Santa. The line would be terrible. The kids would get bored. Then they would get naughty. Then they would cry. Well, that was before HGTV decided to bring the magic back.

As the years went on the technology has made this experience more enjoyable. You no longer have to wait in line. You can have your child experience the magic of Santa’s village with the HGTV Santa HQ. The children participate in an event they can enjoy, and you can purchase a wonderful photo at the end. The best part is you can schedule ahead >>> Santa HQ Reservation.

Start a Family Holiday Tradition at HGTV’s Santa HQ

The magic in her eyes as she tried to take in everything before her. The smile that spread across his face as his lips broke into a grin and a laugh escaped so joyful that my heart was full. There was so much to see and so much to do. What if you could make memories with your children that were so special that they will talk about them for years to come. Would you? What if those memories could be captured and saved for years to come?

That is what I did at Tyson’s Corner this holiday season. I took a moment to make a memory with my children one I hope they will repeat with their own children.

Santa HQ from HGTV and Macerich Shopping Centers

We got to experience all the magic that only HGTV and Macerich Shopping Centers could create. The Santa HQ set is located in the middle of the mall. You do not need to be young to experience the magic. This imaginative, engaging, holiday experience uses state of the art digital technology to create an experience with Santa that will leave your family breathless. Your children will be so excited that they will trip over their words. They will not know what to do first. I mean who could blame them with all the choices?Continue reading
