Outdoor Christmas event ideas for families with small children

  • Emily Smith

All the wonder and excitement of the festive season makes Christmas a very special time of the year for small children, so it's a great opportunity to get out and about to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer during this magical time of the year.

Although the weather might be a little chilly, wrap up warm with your little ones and head off for a few outdoor activities to help get the whole family into the Christmas spirit.

Local lights trail

Many households go all out to decorate their homes with an impressive display of fairy lights and Christmas characters, so exploring your local neighbourhood to see who has the best display is a great way to get the little ones outdoors and clock up a little exercise at the same time.

Parents can wonder about the cost of the energy bills while the kids enjoy the lights before returning home for a well-deserved hot chocolate.

The holly and the ivy

What could be better than a little Christmas crafting with the kids before Santa arrives? Local hedgerows are filled with holly with their glossy red berries and trailing clumps of ivy that can be used to make an incredible festive display to place on the dining table with just a few additional items.

Floristry oasis, dried pinecones and a little glitter can be picked up for a few pounds, so you and the kids can head out to collect some holly and ivy ready for your crafty creation when you get home.

Just make sure that the adult does all the cutting and children don’t take supplies from local gardens.

Christmas carols

Many churches and charitable causes such as the Salvation Army set up outdoor Christmas carolling events on the run-up to the big day, and this is a wonderful activity for adults and children alike.

Most take place outdoors with mulled wine and hot mince pies available in return for a small donation, plus the brass bands and singing makes for a lovely atmosphere, so grab those woolly hats and find your nearest outdoor carolling event.

Before you head off on any of these festive outdoor adventures, make sure that your little ones know what to do should they become separated from you and have one of our reusable ID wristbands on should they wander off to explore on their own.
