‘Twas the run-up to Christmas, and in one room of the house,
Your child was gaming and clicking his mouse.
The holidays mean lots of free time from school,
Time for parties, pjs, and Playstation 2.
Now, the joy of the season should not be dismissed.
Though tough tests and standards get us all in a twist.
There should be bright lights, fun movies, and late nights with family.
And time to give presents, laugh loud, and eat merrily.
But, perhaps there’s a way to make learning bright, too.
To prevent holiday brain drain from happening to you.
See kids are just at that point in the year,
When learning begins to kick into high gear.
You can keep learning going without them even knowing.
Without your child even thinking that his fun is slowing.
Try these Christmas Activities—tied to learning objectives,
Like writing a poem about a reindeer rejected.
Don’t miss Kids Christmas Crafts—for fine motor skills—
Like this Tube Sock Snowman, for when nights get chill.
Want to save money on presents this year?
Homemade Christmas Gifts just seem more sincere.
Even décor can be done on the cheap.
And be done in a way that makes learning run deep.
Check out these Homemade Christmas Decorations.
Tree ornaments sure to impress your relations.
When the holidays are about to close shop for the season.
When kids get tired of their gifts for some reason.
We’ve got one more for auld lang syne.
Some tricks to make New Year’s Eve divine.
