With the weather getting cold and Christmas still weeks away, Steve and I are planning to keep our kids busy until Old St. Nick comes down the chimney. We tried the Home Depot kid workshop last weekend, which I highly recommend for quality family time on a Saturday morning. We hammered, glued, and painted holiday yard decorations. Though I didn’t shellac them for outside, we are enjoying them by the tree, and they make excellent puppets.
Preschool lets out Friday for the rest of 2014, so I’ll be working through a “Christmas Camp” Google document to keep things moving along before December 25. Activities include The Nutcracker, carols, parties, visits to holiday exhibits, baking, crafts, and more. Send healthy and happy thoughts our way as we navigate this somewhat long holiday break!
