What have you done this year to cultivate family time and creative play for the holidays?
We really had fun with holiday activities this year (see pictures below). Many memories were made, including: playing in the snow, experimenting with grain-free cookie recipes, seeing Santa,and giving toys to those in need. Instead of cultivating the “I want for Christmas” attitude, we focused on making gifts to give to others, crafts that symbolized the meaning of Christmas, and outdoor play, of course! Pinterest has been pretty helpful for ideas, especially crafts that are easy enough for an independent toddler to do mostly on his own (follow me on Pinterest).
As we count down the final hours until Christmas, I’d like to just take a moment to wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope that you have the opportunity to make as many wonderful memories as we are making.
