Every Thursday night, the holidays are in full swing during our Winter Wonderland celebration. This exciting, weekly event lets families enjoy all the holiday traditions they may have missed because a child was ill or hospitalized.
The party sparkles with holiday cheer and overflows with activities to make visiting families smile. Check out some of the highlights from our Winter Wonderland:
Pick a present
Kids don’t have to wait until the holidays to open presents. Thanks to generous donations from our partners, kids can choose from stacks of exciting gifts.
Take a picture with Santa
Straight from the North Pole, Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Give Kids The World every Thursday evening. Children and families can take photos and tell him what they want for Christmas!
Snow … in Florida? That’s right! Snow falls all around during Winter Wonderland. Kids can play in fun flurries – no mittens necessary!
With frosting and sprinkles galore, cookie decorating is one of the fun – and delicious – treats waiting for kids during Winter Wonderland.
Dance in a parade
The Village’s iconic characters and colorful floats take to the streets of the Village during the Winter Wonderland parade. Kids can join in to dance with the volunteers and characters to classic holiday tunes.
Play Reindeer Games
Everyone joins our reindeer games! Winter Wonderland is full of fun games for the whole family to play.
Make Holiday Ornaments
Families can get crafty and take home a special holiday ornament to cherish their Winter Wonderland memories.
