After the Halloween Rush, Get Your Kids Ready for the Holiday

DSC_0184-2

Many of the stores are already gearing up for the big holiday season. If you’ve been out to places like Walmart and Target, you already know the decorations are calling you from their shelves. This season it might be a good idea to take on a different approach by getting your family ready now. In this blog, we kick start the season to help you get a grip on things early.

Start out by purging some of your home’s items that will get in the way while hanging wreaths and putting up the tree. Next, have the kids help with a ‘quicker picker upper’ party and get them to help with the dusting and cleaning. It’s great to do good cleaning as it will allow you to have more time focusing on other things.

Ask the kids to put up the decorations with you. Many of your youngsters will most likely want to help. But the teens need to participate for some family bonding. Designate mobile device times so they join in the fun.

Delegate jobs to your children. Ask someone to oversee making shopping lists, another to pick out the type of cookies to bake, etc., By giving everyone a job; it might teach some skills and leave you less work. Well…maybe.

Next, go to Pinterest or Good Housekeeping and get some ideas for decorating your home. Look specifically for crafts your kids can do with you. This will give them a sense of pride for helping beautify your home.

Assign different tasks for holiday parties to each child and relative. Things like taking out the garbage aren’t always fun, but, responsibility is a part of life. Other activity may include taking someone’s coat or serving the guests. Throwing a party is a lot of work, but when you have teamwork, it’s a lot more fun.

Keep in mind; you can always reward your family with a night out at the Wow Factory if all goes well. What the heck, even if it doesn’t, bring them in!

We look forward to seeing you next time!
