This printable Christmas activity placemat is the perfect holiday host hack for a stress-free party!
Christmas is only a few days away, and while it’s certainly the most wonderful time of the year, it usually comes with a few spoonfuls of stress as well. Between hosting out of town guests and finding the perfect gift, there’s always so much to do. Those family dinners tend to fly by, and without much time to sit back and enjoy your own party! If there’s one thing every Party Girl knows, it’s that keeping your cool as a holiday hostess is a learned skill that comes easier to some. That’s why we were excited when our friends over on Wayfair.ca asked us if we had any holiday host hacks to make sure your parties go smoothly this weekend. We jumped at the chance to give you a little last-minute leg up on avoiding Christmas chaos!
Now, we don’t have the solution for avoiding political discussions taking place over the turnip. We aren’t miracle workers. But we figured we could at least help you wrangle your littlest guests this holiday season. After a morning of opening presents and an afternoon of trying them all out, kids can get a little crazy around dinner time. And who could blame them?!
Keep them busy long after they finish their turkey thanks to this free printable activity placemat! Paired with a few pencil crayons at the kids table (we particularly love this one), this Christmas themed activity mat has it all. We made sure it featured our favourites – a Tic Tac Toe game area, a word search, a customizable Christmas tree, and lots of colouring potential.
Get the printable mat here, and print it out on using your home printer in between stuffing the bird and peeling the potatoes. It’s the perfect activity for coming down off a Christmas-present frenzy. Plus it will help keep the kids at the table until the adults are finished too!
P.S. – Does your table look a little less fun without adult placemats? Wayfair.ca has some super cute ones you should check out here.
