Here at the Show ‘N Tell School’s, we’re all about creating memories that your children will cherish forever and spending time together. We wholeheartedly believe in the magic of the holiday season, and look forward to this exciting time year round. With Christmas taking place next week, we wanted to be sure to share some ideas for how to spend your day or night as a family here in the suburbs of Philadelphia. It’s never too early (or late!) to begin a new tradition!
- Create a hot chocolate bar.
One of the most exciting things for a child is to have the opportunity to make decisions on their own and exert independence… especially when it comes to something like dessert! Whether you’re whipping up a gourmet version yourself or adding water to a powder mix, it’s the fixings that make all of the difference in this situation. Grab whipped cream, marshmallows, peppermint sticks, etc. For an added bonus, pop in The Polar Express and make sure to raise your glasses high when they sing that infamous song on the train!
2. Bake cookies for Santa.
Everyone is proud of cookies that they make themselves, so let your littles ones experience this firsthand! Take some time in the afternoon (in between tracking Santa’s location, of course) to bake something new together. We hear that our teachers are happy to be taste-testers should anyone be unsure about how Santa might feel about your creations 😉
3. Don’t forget about the reindeer.
We don’t know about you, but the idea of flying around the entire world in one night sounds exhausting. Don’t forget about Santa’s furry companions! From reindeer dust to carrots … there’s plenty of options to whip up.
4. Pajamas and a movie.
If you have Instagram or Pinterest, then your holiday-loving hearts are bursting with desire to outfit the entire family in matching pj’s, snuggle up on the couch and watch a festive favorite. Make it happen!
5. Go caroling.
An elf that we all know and love once said, “The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.” He’s not wrong. Not only is caroling nostalgic, but it’s such a good way to spread a little holiday magic to your family and friends. Get a few families together and take the kids around the neighborhood to sing a few tunes. You might pick up some extra carolers along the way!
