With so many tips on how to throw the best Christmas Eve dinner, we sometimes forget that the same amount of attention should be given to Christmas morning, too. This is even more important if you have young children in your family as Christmas morning can truly be a magical time for them. So, it’s all up to you to make sure they wake up to a wonderfully planned Christmas day!
Here are a couple of tips to make sure your whole family will enjoy the yuletide holiday the minute they jump out of bed:
Pancakes, for example, can be made apt for the holiday by mixing in some peppermint chocolates, crushed candy canes, or white chocolate mints into the batter before cooking. Stack these in threes and top each plate off with whipped cream and peppermint bits. As a finishing touch, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top of each stack, covering each plate with sugary snow that’ll surely amaze your kids!
Besides pancakes, there are so many other holiday breakfast dishes you can add to the meal. Examples include cinnamon pecan French toast, sticky buns, bacon and egg toast cups, and many more.
Before your kids launch into opening presents, it’s important to make as much space in your living room as possible. After all, you’d want to give your kids as much room to go crazy over their new toys.
To do this, rearrange your furniture with the Christmas tree as the main point of interest. This way, your kids will have a convenient space to unwrap gifts under the tree while you get to sit and watch them have one of their best mornings all year.
By arranging the furniture this way, you won’t have to worry about clean up since gift wrapping won’t stray under the furniture thanks to all the space you’ve set aside.
These are just some of the things you can do to ensure your family of the best Christmas morning this coming December 25. Got any Christmas morning tips to share? If you do, feel free to leave a comment – we’d love to hear about your holiday stories!
