No time to teach and share with kids like on holidays magic For the holiday season with little acts of love and kindness. Experience inner peace and happiness that can last forever with a few simple activities.
Here’s how to enjoy the magic of the holiday season:
Donate to a charity.
Many children during this time are looking forward to receiving lots of gifts and enjoying a hearty holiday meal, but underprivileged families may struggle to achieve their goals. Join the food drive by helping to sort items and donating food. Take your child to pick a toy for another child and have him drop it in a toy box. Remind your children and yourself to thank not only the “things” but also the unconditional love and support of the family.
Watch an old movie.
Rudolph The Red Noseed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and, of course, Christmas Stories are all fun and entertaining movies that will help the whole family get hooked on vacation. Embrace hot cocoa and your favorite movie classic on the couch and enjoy the spirit of the season.
Nostalgia is normal at this time of year, remembering a loved one who has passed by, disappearing, and realizing how fast time passes. Share your precious memories with your children. They will be grateful that you put them in your past and tell them, for example, about your grandparents and how you enjoyed the holidays together as a kid. Watch old photos and watch home movies. Let them gain deeper insight into your history and themselves.
Let’s make new memories.
The holiday tradition is wonderful. We look forward to family gatherings, lights, holiday cards and more as the winter months and holiday season approach. Also consider starting a new tradition. You can read a special book each year, take an annual photo in front of the fireplace, travel to the mountains for a ski adventure, or celebrate the New Year in winter wonderland.
Discuss the importance of holidays with your children.
Remind children that holidays aren’t just gifts. Ask them to draw a picture of your ideal holiday season and tell them why this time is special for them. If you practice a particular religion, tell your child what a holiday means from that perspective. Discuss how we can work together to make this holiday season enjoyable together and special to others.
Make a holiday snack.
Making chocolates and cookies is an easy, quick and fun activity. Find molds (Christmas trees, snowmen, dreidels, etc.) that represent something special to your family. Decorate sugar cookies. Enjoy homemade holiday treats with your loved ones.
Enjoy the fresh winter air.
Take a walk in a quaint village with many shops decorated according to the season. Take a walk in your neighborhood and see how your neighbors show their holiday spirit with intricate lighting and outdoor decorations. The family experience makes it beautiful and even more special.
Look at your child while they sleep.
Nothing is more peaceful than a sleeping child being wrapped in a blanket and dreaming peacefully. See your child as a major achievement for you and your partner. Please acknowledge the achievements of your children. Be proud of the work you did well.
This holiday season will be magical for the family by observing the joy it brings together. Listen to holiday music and sing along. Please laugh with a smile. take a picture. Dress up for a party, even just for you and your kids. Take the time to relax yourself, with your partner and as a family, for longer-lasting magic than what you create together.
