Have a Family Game Night
With fewer events taking place due to the pandemic, many families are finding themselves at home more often, but especially during this holiday season. The colder months do not give us much of a choice but to stay inside. However, there are plenty of fun ways to keep your kids entertained. One way is having a family game night. Let each member of the household pick out one game, or look through your game closet together and choose your favorites. Order a pizza, or make your own, and let the games begin!
Look at Christmas Lights
What better way to enjoy the holiday season than to have your family load up in your vehicle and drive around looking at Christmas lights. Put on your favorite Christmas songs while sipping on some hot chocolate and viewing the awesome Christmas lights and décor members of our community have worked hard to display for the season. You can still get out and have fun while keeping yourself socially distanced in the comfort of your own vehicle.

Make a Community Giving Jar
Let your kids make a list of 12 ways they can give back to their community. Place each individual idea in a mason jar. Starting in January, let your child draw one idea out of the mason jar. Each month they will focus on that particular idea. Whether it be taking food to the animal shelters or donating items in the house to Habitat, they will learn each month the importance of helping those in their community. It will make them feel good but also be a wonderful year of learning, too. Don’t forget to let the kids show their crafty side and decorate the jar, too.
