What is a Christmas Tree Campout?

Christmas is a time for family, friends, and spending time together. One of the best ways to do that is to have a family sleepover under the Christmas tree. This way everyone gets to spend time together in one spot and there’s plenty of room for activities. Plus, it gives everyone a break from their electronic devices so that they can talk and bond with each other.

What could be more magical than spending a night under the Christmas tree with your family? This year, make some memories that will last a lifetime by spending a night in your living room with your loved ones. This is such a fun and easy family tradition that everyone will look forward to year after year.

Here’s everything you need to know to make your sleepover under the Christmas tree a success.

Christmas Tree Sleepover

Picking the Perfect Christmas Tree

The first step to having a successful family sleepover under the Christmas tree is picking out the perfect tree. If you have younger children, they’ll probably want a tall tree that they can decorate themselves. But if you have older children, they might prefer a smaller tree that they can decorate.

No matter what size tree you choose, make sure it’s fresh and has no brown needles. You don’t want anyone to get pricked by a dried-out branch in the middle of the night!

Choose a Night

Choose a night in December to have the sleepover. You will want to avoid the night before Christmas Eve so that everyone can get a good night’s sleep before Santa comes.

You might also want to consider having the sleepover on a Friday or Saturday night so that everyone can stay up late and have fun. Invite friends over it you want, teens love hanging out with friends so this sleepover will be extra special around Christmas time.

Setting Up Your Sleeping Area

Once you’ve chosen your tree, it’s time to start setting up your sleeping area. Start by setting out some sleeping mats or air mattresses underneath the tree. Then, fluff up the pillows and arrange them around the tree.

And don’t forget to put out some snacks and drinks so everyone can stay hydrated and fueled up for all of the Christmas fun! Finally, queue up your holiday playlist and enjoy!

Staying entertained all night long

One of the best parts of having a family sleepover is staying up all night long chatting and laughing together. To keep everyone entertained, make sure you have some Christmas games ready to play

You could also pop some popcorn or make a Christmas Charcuterie Board and watch a holiday movie together. Or, if you’re feeling really festive, you could even sing some Christmas carols! Just make sure you keep the noise level down so everyone can get some rest.
