Holiday-Inspired Family Activities!

Hi Friends:

With the Christmas holiday just a day away, we want to devote this blog post to family activities. Enjoy!

Is your shopping done, the stockings hung and presents wrapped? Consider a family trip to a local ice skating rink for some winter-inspired fun and exercise!

Stop for a moment to appreciate the beauty of the season!

Would you prefer to hunker down indoors?  Why not gather the family together for a rousing game of Bingo! We use one of these vintage sets and award small prizes, cookies or candy to the winner.
Do you have little ones to entertain? Make these adorable candy crafts! 
Supplies needed: Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, green tinsel pipe cleaner, a star bead and a dab of glue to attach the tree to it's base.
Supplies needed: A package of Starburst, white wrapping paper, scrap felt for the hat, scrap fabric for the scarf and paint marker.

From our family to yours, happy holidays!!!
