My family loves creating special family traditions, especially around the holidays. There are certain things my 9-year-old likes to do, while my 7-year-old chooses totally different activities.
It’s fun to spend that individual time with them and it has really helped keep the bond strong with my boys. Then there’s things we love doing all together like baking cookies and having a camp out under the Christmas tree, so fun! Below are a few mom and son Christmas tradition ideas.
