-Pick a day to decorate cookies

-Make crafts for family & friends.  Handprint art is always a favorite!

-Camp out in the living room or build a fort

-Have each family say or write what they are thankful for and keep for the next year.

Books provide tons of opportunities for your family.  You can have bonding time together while reading and create fun new memories.  There are many beautiful pictures to enjoy in books and characters to get familiar with.  You and your child can pick a favorite character and create your own crafts from them.  Great places to get free books are:
