Start your own advent calendar tradition with this fun family-friendly Unwrap a Christmas Movie Countdown Idea! An exciting way to celebrate the holidays!
THIS!!! We are doing this for Christmas this year, and I had to share it with you! We cut out cable at our house; it has been a long time coming. So, we are doing something different this year that is going to be fun for the whole family! No commercials, movies on our schedule, and Christmas excitement all rolled into one!!! Unwrap a Christmas Movie Countdown Idea!
Unwrap a Christmas Movie Countdown Idea!
I am going to fish out all of our Christmas movies and wrap them each individually. I will place them in a big basket or under the tree. If I have a digital copy of a movie, I will just wrap a slip of paper with the title in a small box. Starting December 1st and each night until Christmas, the kids get to select a present to unwrap. That will be the movie we watch that night. Isn't that the best idea?!
- Quality family entertainment that I pick.
- No Commercials
- On our schedule
- The excitement of Christmas and unwrapping a gift a day.
- The surprise of it all!
Another fun idea is to grab bags of microwave popcorn and dollar boxes of theatre candy to wrap for a bonus gift for the weekends. Create your own advent calendar by wrapping small treats for the kids to go with their movie night! You will be creating a family tradition that will last for years to come!
So which movies are we using?
We are using the 25 Family Christmas Movies Everyone Should Own check them out!
I would love to hear if you will be participating too! Let me know how your family enjoys this countdown or what other Christmas Movies you will be watching!
