- Christmas news with a twist: It’s always a lot of fun to hear about what your family members have gotten up to the past year, but don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit! There are lots of fun ways to give your newspaper and Christmas newsletter a creative twist. Like writing your newsletter from the perspective of your pet dog, for instance? Or holding a spoof interview with your two-year-old niece?
- Christmas comic: Much like illustrated comics, you create your own holiday-themed comic by superimposing speech bubbles onto your favourite family photos (preferably one with a Christmas theme: last year’s Christmas dinner, for instance?). With a bit of imagination, you can fill the speech bubbles with fun captions that will reimagine these family scenes in hilarious fashion!
- Advent calendar: Create your own advent calendar with fun Christmas activities the whole family can enjoy. Day 1: Make hot chocolate, Day 9: Have a game night, Day 23: Watch family videos. Keep your ideas fun and simple. With a fun and festive chart like this, you’ll have the family spending lots of quality time together in no time!
- Family portrait: Every family newsletter needs a mandatory family portrait. But instead of the traditional picture in front of the Christmas tree, why not mix things up a bit? There are lots of fun and original family photo ideas you can totally pull off this Christmas: have your toddler draw the family, take a picture of your reflection if a Christmas ball, re-enact the movie poster of your favourite Christmas film, or decorate individual portraits with elf hats, red noses, reindeer antlers, and more!
- Christmas recipes: Is there anything more festive than baking lots of colourfully frosted cookies? From Reindeer Rice Krispies to Christmas Tree Brownies, there are lots of fun and creative holiday-inspired treats you can add to your Christmas newsletter. And why not challenge your family members to try one of the recipes as part of your advent calendar?
- 12 Days of Christmas: The main objective of a Christmas newsletter is to reflect on the past year and to celebrate your family’s most memorable moments. So why not highlight your 12 best memories to the tune of the famous Christmas carol? On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me: Charlie’s impressive paddle boarding skills on the Douro River during our family trip to Portugal.
