Searching for the perfect holiday gifts for your kids? The Council for the Advancement of Public Schools (CAPS) suggests that you ask your children’s teachers. Remember that they know your children well and can frequently recommend educational games, toys and experiences that are age and learning-appropriate.
While considering holiday gifts, think about books, e-readers, museum memberships, local field trips and activities that will get them moving, especially in this cold weather when many kids like to hibernate in front of the TV or computer. And don’t forget to help them find ways to share with other children who may need their help to enjoy a happy holiday!
Remember -- the best gift of all is your time and undivided attention at the holidays and year-round. If it doesn’t happen naturally, CAPS suggests that you schedule time in your planner, like the other important things you do. Children need to know how special and loved they are and there’s no better way to show them.
However you celebrate, enjoy the holiday season.
