DealDash Kids: Fun Family Holiday Activities


Tis the season to spend quality time with family. If you’re running out of fun holiday activities to do with your family, look no further.

It’s the perfect time of year to make lasting lifetime memories with your family. There’s nothing wrong with sitting around and watching TV sometimes, but fun activities will really stand out in everyone’s mind. Here are some great holiday activities to do with your family, from DealDash.

Write Letters to Santa

My kids love writing letters to Santa Claus. Our local community organization made it a point to respond to the letters that we sent them. It was a well-written, personalized letter that didn’t make any promises about gifts. The kids loved getting a personalized note from Santa Claus. See if there is an organization in your area that does this as well. You can try asking at your local library, elementary school, or church. There are also places online you can order a postcard from Santa, as well.

Wrap Christmas Presents

Wrapping presents might seem like a chore to an adult, but kids love to wrap presents. If you have more than one child you can ask if they would like to wrap the other’s present. Of course, only do this if your kids are old enough to keep a secret! If they are an only child or can’t keep a secret, ask if they would like to wrap Grandma/Grandpa/Aunt/Uncle/Cousin’s present. My daughter is 8 and loves to wrap her brother’s presents. She not only thinks it’s fun but also enjoys knowing a secret the boys don’t know!

Decorate With DealDash

As with wrapping presents, decorating can be a chore for adults and a joy for children. DealDash has some great things to use to decorate for the holidays. You will find a Christmas train, lighting strips, smart bulbs and many other decorative items on DealDash.  Or you can always check out the Home, Garden, and Tools category, located here.

The Pickle Game

We’ve also picked up the German tradition of “hiding the pickle”. You purchase a pickle shaped ornament and hide it on the Christmas tree. You give the “go” and the kids search the Christmas tree for the ornament. Whoever finds it first wins a prize. The following year, the person who won gets to hide the ornament for everyone else to find.

DealDash and Running Accessories

There are many new, fun, and exciting running accessories out on the market recently. Let’s take a look at them, and see if they are things that you need in your life.

One of the great things about having running as your hobby is that you don’t need any special equipment other than a good pair of shoes. However, there are a lot of new and fun items on the market that you can try out and see if they improve your running sessions. Now remember, you don’t need these items, but they can make you life a little more fun.

LED armband or shoe lights – LED armband or shoe lights are excellent accessories to use if you ever run at night. If you primarily like to run in the morning or early afternoon you probably don’t need these, but now that it’s getting darker earlier and earlier due to it being fall now, you might need these LED armband or shoe lights if you plan on running in the late afternoon, evening, or after dinner. These aren’t powerful enough lights for you to see by, they are so cars can see you. Stay safe, get yourself some LED armband or shoe lights.

Bluetooth knitted hat – Now this is really something new, exciting, and different. On the surface it looks like any regular knitted hat that you can get at any big box store for $5, but inside are bluetooth speakers so that you can wear the hat while you run and be able to listen to your music without headphones. It’s really quite a novel invention, and extremely useful in the upcoming chilly months. This is definitely a seasonal product, though, to be used from now until spring.

Running belt – Of course running belts themselves aren’t a new concept, but I am referring to the new generation of running belt that is designed to fit the newer, bigger generation of smartphones. These running belts have generous inside compartments, pass-through sections for your headphones wires, and some of them even come equipped with LED lights so cars can see you easily.
