1. Drive Around to see Christmas Lights – Take a detour, drive the long way, or take special drive just to look at the lights. This doesn’t have to be a one time event!

2. Decorate for the Holidays – Hang the lights, put up the tree, and make some homemade ornaments. The earlier you decorate, the sooner it will feel like the Christmas season has begun. Continue to add decorations throughout the holidays by stringing up holiday cards.

3. Make Hot Cocoa – End the evening with a warm mug of hot cocoa! It’s easy to make and will warm your belly for a good night’s sleep.

Hot Cocoa: Combine 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/3 cup hot water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Stir in 4 cups DairyPure milk and heat, do not boil. Remove from the heat and serve!

4. Read Christmas Stories – Take 15 minutes each day to read a Christmas story as a family, sharing all the classics.


5. Bake Christmas Cookie – Mix, roll, cut, bake, frost, and decorate sugar cookies! You’ll spend a few quality hours together and end with a yummy treat you can enjoy as you countdown to Christmas.

We make sure our kids consume the best we can. Many people do not think that food can vary, but it does.
