How can I celebrate Christmas with my 4-year-old child?

Your 4-year-old child can already be caught up with all the excitement brought by the holiday season. Although he is still too young to understand the concept of Christmas, he can still take part in various festivities. This is their time to start socialising with other people and is a good time for you to set up family traditions that he can take part in.
 
Although the idea of how it feels like to give to those who are in need may still be too much for him to understand, that does not mean he cannot take part in showing generous acts to other people. Remember that this can be the time for your child to start following good behavioural examples from you. Over Christmas, the entire family can start a tradition of giving food to the needy or bake biscuits to give out to your neighbours. These can be absorbed by him, especially if you let him be the one to give the food.
 
You may celebrate Christmas with your 4-year-old by doing these kinds of generous acts. Remember that by doing so, you are not just enjoying the holiday season with him, but you are somehow showing him how the season should be celebrated and the blessings should be shared with everyone.
