I don’t know about you, but every time a holiday rolls around, we are caught with time on our hands and children bouncing off the walls.
Holidays are, of course, a time where we should have an opportunity to wind down and enjoy being together as a family. Making good family memories will last a lifetime and are an important part of a child’s healthy social development.
Here are some ideas for family activities in and around our community this coming Holiday season:
