Be A Tourist In Your Own Town
Don’t let the chill in the air slow you down! Bundle up, and spend an afternoon exploring with your girl. Head off to a destination that you’ve always wanted to see, or take her to one of your own favorite spots that she hasn’t seen yet.
Twelve Days of Giving
Make others’ lives merry and bright during the 12 days of Christmas, beginning December 25 and ending January 5. Stuff decorated shoe boxes with toys, school supplies, and personal-care products for disadvantaged children. Ladle up meals at a soup kitchen, or surprise your elderly neighbor with a homemade meal or treat!
Explore New Cultural Traditions
Broaden your family’s cultural awareness, and spice up your typical holiday celebration by introducing traditions from around the world. Learn how to say “happy holidays” and sing carols in various languages; or, try new recipes for holiday delicacies from various parts of the world.
Bond Over Cookies
Whip up holiday cheer by gathering to bake and decorate cookies. Assign youngsters manageable tasks, such as pouring pre-measured ingredients, stirring, and making shapes with cookie cutters. Older kids can measure wet and dry ingredients, crack eggs, and roll out the dough. Allow imaginations to soar when it comes to decorating these masterpieces. Share the baked goods with friends, family, and neighbors, and make a sweet gift out of them.
Enjoy the Big Screen at Home
After the craziness leading up to the holiday season, the best treat may be some much needed R&R at home. Organize a movie date complete with popcorn, drinks, and cozy socks and let your little chick pick the flick.
