a little fun day 2
I talked about de-stressing your holiday a little yesterday when I started the 12 days & 12 ways to have fun with your kids during the insanity of the Christmas season.
But there are other benefits in finding simple ways to delight your children.
They’ll remember your traditions.
And when they’re old they’ll come to YOUR house for the holidays.
At least that’s the goal.
So, day 2:
Wait until it’s time for bed – or anytime really. I just prefer to make as big a memory impact as possible and after I’ve sent my kids to bed is the perfect time to surprise them with a little more stayin’ up.
While they’re hiding away somewhere, make all your kids a nice hot cup of cocoa with tons of marshmallows. Make a big one for yourself, too.
It doesn’t have to be in the biggest mug you have in the cupboard. You don’t even have to fill the mug up to the top. Although, a neat idea might be to pick up new $1 mugs at the dollar store. But this isn’t necessary.
It just takes a little effort.
They’ll love it. And they’ll remember.
