Yesterday we told you about Lisa Kothari, the founder of Peppers and Pollywogs. She kindly gave us some great holiday ideas that we are happy to share with you.
When you head out for holiday parties and leave your lil ones with the sitter, there are some fun ways to keep them entertained and in the holiday spirit.
- Purchase a minitree with some small ornaments and have the kids decorate the small tree.
- Make shaving-cream snowmen — Place newspaper down on a table. Spray shaving cream all over the entire table for the kids to make their very own snowmen. This is really easy to do and easy to clean up. . . . and the kids will love the mess!
- Make jingle-bell necklaces – Have bright colored jingles placed in bowls on a table, and also have varying lengths of satin ribbon cut off so the kids can string the bells into necklaces, bracelets, even a ring.
- Read the tale of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas ($14) – a favorite this time of year! And then have a contest: Who can undecorate the minitree the quickest! Just like the Grinch!
Come back tomorrow for Lisa's ideas on how to make December birthdays special for your tot.
