10 Easy and Frugal Kids Christmas Activities

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and it’s quickly become my children’s favorite too. They love learning about the reason for the season and participating in the many fun events around town. We try to bring some Christmas fun home too by planning Christmas and winter themed activities for the kids to enjoy.  Here are some of our favorites. Being that this is Mess For Less, they are all easy and won’t break the budget. After all, we spend enough at Christmas.
