As holidays get closer, life gets more hectic. It’s okay to feel good about doing less and not feel guilty about not doing more.
Kido Tip 1. Prioritize the to-do list
This time of year I find a bit overwhelming with all the added events and activities going on. I try to make a list of what I really want to do this season, adding special events to the calendar, picking off peak times to shop when possible and instead of buying gifts for everyone opting for group outings or family get togethers.Â And since I cannot attend all the special happenings or have time to make everyone a gift I know there are some traditions I love and do want to make time for like makiing a book from the words in our advent calendar, baking some cookies and involving my kids in more community giving – now and into the New Year.
Kido Tip 2. Plan a holiday card.
Whether you send a holiday card out in December or send a New Year’s Card in January (Because of Kido Tip 1, we send our cards out in January) now’s the time to find an adorable photo of your child(ren) or schedule a professional or at-home photo shoot. If you’d rather not send a photo, buy ready-made or make your own. Scan/print one of your child’s drawings onto card stock. For one-of-a-kind creations, use old magazines to make collage cards for family and teachers.
