How to Turn the Holidays Green

 Stories for the Holiday Season

With visions of toys and games dancing in their heads, it's easy for children to miss the real significance of holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali and Kwaanza. Fortunately, there are plenty of enjoyable books for kids that teach the historical and cultural meanings of these and other winter celebrations. Check out our picks.

Take a Break from the Holiday Hustle and Create Calming Holiday Art

The holiday season is busy no matter what you do or do not celebrate. Social engagements, school functions, and extra time shopping takes a toll. We all get wound up and kids are no exception. Use art to take a break and get calm between the sugar rushes and other holiday excitement. Here's what you will need.

Classic Holiday Cookies

We love encouraging parents and their children to cook and bake together as a way to connect and spend quality time with one another. You and your kids will have fun making and sharing this classic holiday treat: Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. Get the recipe.
