Preparing for the Holidays

If you’ve found yourself recently single, it’s still important to make sure the kids have a postive remberable holiday season, even if you aren’t feeling the jolliest.

Here’s a list of some things you and the kids can enjoy to get in the holiday spirit:

1. Write letters to Santa- Santa loves to read, so write letters!

2. Make Christmas cards for the family and teachers. Crafts are a fun way for the kids to get creative!

3. Sing Christmas Carols- Singing is good for the soul and it’s been known to make people happier.

4. Watch Holiday movies and make a Popcorn Garland- It’ll be a challenge to not eat all of the popcorn straight out of the bowl.. Give it a try! ;)

5. Look at Christmas lights. Every neighborhood has them! Go on a search and find your favorite!

6. Shop for an angel. This is a great way to help those who are in need of a little cheer this year and teach the kids the importance of giving!

7. Make winter tea and watch the snow. Need I say more?!

8. Learn a Christmas song on an instrument lying around the house. Does someone is the house have an old dusty instrument lying around the house?! Their are many videos on YouTube, the whole clan can learn!

9. Decorate a Gingerbread house. Then eat it!

10. Decorate the Christmas tree.  Their are lots of things that need decorating this time of year! Do you know why?! Research and share parties are fun too!
