With exactly 2 weeks out from Halloween I know many of you may be scrambling to get on the holiday merry-making with the kids – this is everything you need to easily make Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas memories with their kids!
We put a lot of time and love into creating this book because we wanted to give busy parents a way to make tons of holiday memories in a very low-stress and manageable way.
Commit to Less Stressing & More Connecting this Holiday Season
The holiday season is such a wonderful time to share with your kids. From Trick-or-Treating to opening the presents under the tree, there are so many memories to be made and, as parents, we don’t want to miss a single opportunity.
But planning special outings, pulling-together seasonal crafts, and baking up a slew of holiday recipes can be exhausting (the prep work alone is almost a part-time job).
If you’d like to spend the holidays less frazzled about planning and more in-the-moment, enjoying time with the kids – we’ve got just the thing.
Our new eBook, Hands-On Holidays, is 100 pages full of everything you and the kids will need to have a great time creating, cooking, reading, and adventuring together from October through December.
And the best part is, nearly all the activities are very simple both in their preparation and execution. It’s all about spending quality time together and being creative in an open-ended way, not running all over town finding obscure craft materials to make a picture perfect project.
Here’s What’s Included…
The book is divided into three sections (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas), each of which begins with a list of ways for families to get into the holiday spirit:
- Ideas for Starting a Halloween Tradition
- 10 Ways to Practice Thankfulness as a Family
- Advent Activities List: 24 Ways to Count Down to Christmas
In addition to these ideas, we’ve also provided our favorite children’s books for each holiday – because there’s no better way to get kids in the spirit of the season than by reading about it with them each night!
Of course, no holiday activity book would be complete without a bevy of crafts and DIY decor projects.
We’ve filled our pages with simple ways for the kids to help decorate for each holiday, as well as lots of stimulating playtime ideas.
Each section also contains our favorite sweet treats. These are tried-and-true recipes my family adores making and eating and yours will too!
And don’t miss out on our special bonus sections. Filled with tips and tools to help make this your best holiday season yet, they include:
- Use Those Halloween Costumes to Build Brainpower
- What to do with all that Candy
- Creating a DIY Dress Up Kit on the Cheap
- Thanksgiving Kids’ Table Printables
- A “Berry Merry” Teacher Christmas Gift Idea
