Family activities at Christmas time contribute to lasting holiday memories. The more you involve kids in the planning and preparations, the more satisfying memorable will be the outcomes.

I'm sharing fun and easy activities from some amazing family-friendly bloggers. You'll find an activity for each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas Day. There's also a link to a Made for Kids roundup with more Christmas fun.

Count down from 12 to 1 with these great holiday activities.

Countdown to Christmas

This roundup of holiday activities was inspired by the traditional Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. The lyrics in each of the verses is replaced with an activity you can do with the kids.

Sing along to the tune of the '12 Days of Christmas' as you go through the list.

On the twelfth day of Christmas we start our family fun!
