Brrrr...It's cold outside

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

 

Well folks like it or not it's that time again for snow, snow and more snow. Now many usually take this time to start their hibernation with hot cocoa and a good book. But what happens when you're kids are home for break and they've played with every toy in the house? Well no need to go out and buy more gifts before Christmas because we're here to help!

Here are a few wintertime ideas provided by Parents.com

Make colored ice cubes and hide them around the yard, for a scavenger hunt.

  • When it's cold out (below 32 degrees) blow bubbles and watch them freeze.
  • In a spray bottle add food coloring to water and let your kids paint the snow.
For the birds, hollow out an orange and will it with seeds.

Let's Talk Turkey

 

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I can just taste that yummy pumpkin pie! Mmmm! And I bet you and your family are getting ready for this delicious American tradition as well!

However before you start digging into that Turkey wouldn't you like to know more about this holiday and why we celebrate it? Of course many of you know it was founded by the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock and the Native Americans, but did you know that the holiday wasn't a national holiday until Abraham Lincoln declared it 1863? Also at the first Thanksgiving there wasn't any pumpkin pie served, instead it was just pumpkins minus the pie. I'm glad that tradition has changed!
