While the month of December can be busy, it's important to make plans to spend time celebrating the season with those we love most. Both Grandma and the grandkids will love these fun holiday activities that create memories to last a lifetime. Bonus: While these experiences are fun, many of them will also help get some of the preparation out of the way for the upcoming holiday celebrations.

Bake a Family Recipe
Whether it's cookies, a cake, or a fudge recipe, we know Grandma has at least one dessert that she makes every year for Christmas. Grandkids of any age will love offering a helping hand and learning how to bake from the expert.

Watch a Classic Christmas Movies
Grandma will love introducing her grandkids to one of her favorite classic Christmas movies that they may not have seen before. And to make the night even more memorable, add matching Christmas pajamas.

Go Christmas Gift Shopping
Mark some gifts off the Christmas list while spending quality time together looking for perfect gifts for the rest of the family.

Decorate the Christmas Tree
Decorating the tree is always better with company, and Grandma will love reminiscing and sharing stories with the grandkids about treasured ornaments as she pulls them out of the box.

Look at Christmas Lights
Stroll through the neighborhood or take a drive around town to enjoy the lights with hot chocolate in hand.
