The Celebration is over, the packages are unwrapped and now it is either begin the un-decorating or continue the family fun. I choose the family fun, Ill get to the clean up once my kids are back in school.

Here are our 14 post Christmas family fun ideas:

Ice Skating - Take your kids ice skating to either an indoor or an out door rink.

PJ Day - Announce a stay in your PJ day. Allow your kids to hang out all day in their PJ's.

Snow Day - If you live close to the snow, pile your kids into the car and head to the snow for a fun day of sledding or skiing

Puzzle fun - Begin a family puzzle that you work on during your kids Christmas vacation.

Gamer day - Announce an all day video Game day for the family. Even mom and dad get to play video games with the kids. Make up fun competitions, eat pic-nick style while playing games.

Bowling - Take your kids to the local bowling alley for a family fun game. Be sure to ask for bumpers. Award prizes to your kids,

Movie Day - Who doesn't love a movie day? Rent or watch already owned moves your entire family can enjoy. Pop that popcorn get out the left over Christmas treats and enjoy a day together.

Game Time - Don't put away the new games your children received without first playing them. Take time and have a family game night or day.

These are some fun ideas. We like to host a post-holiday tea party with all of my daughter's friends. We either have it at our house and she gets to pull out her tea sets or we head on over to a local tea house or hotel that offers tea parties. They still have the Holiday decorations up but it's much less busy than before Christmas.

We also like to pitch a tent in the house during Holiday break. We pretend we are camping but do it within the comfort of the warm indoors.
