Prepare several identical applications with Christmas trees. During the holiday, distribute them to all members of the family, and then offer to decorate the Christmas trees, drawing with felt-tip pens with tinsel, balls and toys.

In an interesting children’s Christmas game you can turn an ordinary game into forfeits. Write simple tasks on paper, preferably related to the New Year theme, for example, depict the symbol of the coming year, recite a verse or sing a song about winter, show a dance of snowflakes, etc. Fold them in a red bag, and then take it in turns.
Have everyone take turns inventing unusual endings for famous fairy tales. For example, it can be “Chicken-ryaba”, “Kolobok”, “Teremok”, “Turnip”, etc.
Beautifully decorate any box, for example, from shoes and pick up a few items that fit it in size. Participants of the game should guess what exactly is hidden in the box, asking leading questions.
Hang a drawing paper on the wall. Shortly before the chiming clock, let each family member draw on it what he would like to have or achieve next year.
A great New Year’s entertainment will be the ignition of fireworks on the street. Just choose the necessary quality products from proven manufacturers.
To get a child a New Year’s gift is only half the battle. It is equally important to figure out how to hand it on behalf of Santa Claus. While the children are still small, it is easier to do this, for example, quietly putting a gift under the Christmas tree or changing into Santa Claus’s grandfather or father. But if the child is older, he is able to quickly understand what’s what. In this case, you can invite professionals or show imagination and come up with your own way of presenting gifts. For example, tell the children that Santa Claus broke the bag and all the gifts were lost, but the good squirrels found them in the forest and brought them to your house.
