Holiday time and knowing that a new year approaches we find ourselves out of breath so to speak! Come to think of it, our daily lives are so very busy that rarely do we intentionally indulge and hit the “mute” button. If you already do this, you are one of the lucky ones who have come to realize that once in a while, this is an important personal exercise for your physical and mental being. Hitting your personal mute button doesn’t mean you are disconnected; rather it infers how truly connected you are. Because our lives are bombarded with consistent stimulus and distractions and routines that comprise the function of our day, we need to take that step back and shut it all down and retrieve a moment or two to feel ourselves and our own presence as we navigate the busy world in which we live. Here’s two simple and mindful suggestions we have for you, and yes, you are worth it.
What reindeer game do reindeer play at sleepovers? Truth or deer.
Why do reindeer like Beyoncé so much? She sleighs.
What did Santa say when he stepped into a big puddle? It must have reindeer.
Where do Santa’s reindeer stop for coffee? Star-bucks.
What’s every elf’s favorite type of music? Wrap!
Who is never hungry at Christmas? The turkey—he’s always stuffed.
What do Santa’s elves learn in school? The elf-abet.
What did the gingerbread man put on his bed? A cookie sheet!
What do snowmen eat for breakfast? Ice Crispies.

There’s no better time than the holiday season to help children learn a little bit more about manners! After all, life can be much more enjoyable with a little ‘please’ and ‘thank-you’. What better way than to give children their very own Thank-You Cards. Go ahead and let’s do this the old-fashion way. Purchase a cute box of cards for your grandkids to have on hand. Since manners are always in season, consider this a year-round gift of love.
If your holiday celebration with your grandchildren is limited to a single day or even from far away, why not extend it with added endeavors, and make it even more memorable. To get closer to your grandchildren (with that holiday spirit of course), we recommend these fun activities.*
