The holidays are a magical time of the year, a wonderful way to make memories and spend quality moments with your children. We have compiled a list of easy ways to celebrate the season with your little ones!

Check Out Winterfest in Hartford
They offer free ice skating rentals and access to the rink, and they even have learn-to-skate sessions!

Stop by the Christmas Village in Torrington
You can meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus, see the elves working, meet reindeer, and just take in all the season has to offer.

Go to the Tunnel of Lights at the CT Trolley Museum
They offer a variety of fun ways to enjoy the season while also enjoying all the history and special things the trolly museum normally offers.

Drive Through Hartford’s Holiday Lights Fantasia
See all the themes and festive lights in the comfort of your car! They charge by car instead of per person; save by ordering ahead of time online!

Enjoy Hot Cocoa and a Movie
Get out your holiday PJ sets and settle in under some cozy blankets for a movie and some warm hot chocolate. It’s a great way to make memories and have quality time together. 

Bake Some Cookies and Have a Decorating Contest
If your little ones are too young to help bake the cookies, have them help decorate with frosting, sprinkles, or any other edible additions. Take a lot of pictures to capture the memories created, and embrace the mess—it can be cleaned up 😉.

Stay Local with a Drive Around Your Neighborhood
See what neighbors went all out with their decorations and festive lights, and be sure to take notes of your favorite ones!

Most importantly, just enjoy your time with your loved ones and make those memories that last a lifetime!
