I know the holidays are supposed to be fun for everyone, but I have noticed that the kids get bored really fast, and I would like to have a bunch of activities ready for them in advance. Any ideas?

I usually look at the local section of the newspaper where it displays upcoming community events. You can get some great ideas, and often they are free activities. You can also check your town website (if they have one) as they will usually offer a list of events there, as well. For more to do, check out regional newspapers or county websites that cover many towns and cities.

I think it is fun to let the older kids participate in preparing the desserts for the holiday meal. My daughter loves making cookies, cakes and candy for everyone and this helps me out a lot too.

My daughter is a tween and she gets bored with everything. The most fun I've ever seen her have was helping her cousins with holiday-themed crafts. I always get a bunch of little simple crafts for the kids to do and have a table set up in another room so that while the adults are spending time together, the kids are using their imagination together.

How old are the kids? We make crafts every year at my big family Christmas party. Have you ever tried melting crayons in clear balls? It's cool and the kids really love it.
