With Halloween past us, the winter Holiday season is approaching quickly…oh so quickly! Retailers are heavily discounting their orange and black merchandise only to replace it with the next holiday, and then the next, and before we know it we are ringin’ in the new year! It is so easy as parents to get “wrapped” up in the cooking, shopping, etc. this time of year that we can easily forget about the little tykes and how they view the holidays. Here are a few tips to help turn the focus off of the seasonal stress and join the kids for some holiday fun!
Create cozy bedrooms. Winter-y weather, festive inspired sheets for $19.99 at Target can add some winter fun & warmth to your kiddos bedding basics. This can be an annual event to make bed time new and exciting in preparation for the snowy season.
Decorate their table. Make your little angels feel extra special during holiday mealtime by setting a kid-sized table.
Bake with buds. Bake up a couple dozen cookies for your own cookie exchange while hosting a cookie decorating party for your kids and their best buddies. This way you make one trip to the store to gather all of your ingredients, and only one mess in the kitchen. Talk about multi-tasking!

Tree-trimming tots. Buy a table top sized tree to add a little festive fun to their bedroom. This is a great place to display the ornaments they have made throughout the years.
