Easy and Family-Friendly 2020 Holiday Bucket List

If you follow me on Instagram (@madisonthomsonphotography) you know that I love my 5 item daily checklist and now I get to add holiday activities to it! We busted out the Christmas decorations last week and I’m ready to jump into all of the holiday baking, movies, and books galore. I realized early on that if I don’t plan our holiday activities or put them on my checklist that they often get forgotten in the business at the end of the year. Then it’s Christmas and I feel like I haven’t really soaked in all the family moments that I wanted to capture. This year is definitely going to look a little different for us since a lot of the local Fresno things we love to do aren’t going to happen, but I won’t let that get me down! I made a bucket list of family-friendly and easy holiday activities that can be done at home with minimal effort but results in lots of holiday cheer and love. Click the link below and download the bucket list to print and hang it in your home. Pick a place where you can see it easily and find small ways to celebrate during the holiday season.
