The Christmas Bucket List for kids is a fun way to celebrate the arrival of Christmas. There are outdoor activities, indoor activities, and much much more. This bucket list is like a Christmas countdown or Christmas advent calendar, but a free printable version.
The printable Christmas bucket list for kids is filled with Christmas bucket list ideas for families to enjoy. You don’t have to do all of them and they don’t have to all be done before Christmas, but even if you only do a few it’s still fun for the family.
I recently shared a list of fun Family Holiday Traditions and a lot of the items on the bucket list are also part of the holiday traditions I shared. Pick out your favorite and do them each year!
Many of the Christmas bucket list ideas are free or pretty cheap. We don’t want you breaking the bank right before the holidays and you shouldn’t have to spend loads of money to create fun memories, have fun, and celebrate Christmas. Free Christmas bucket list activities include writing a letter to Santa, donating toys, spreading kindness, reading Christmas books, and a few other things.
