Mommy Moment Monday…We need another holiday!

I love the holiday season!  The gatherings, food, decorations, the holiday spirit, all of it!  When it’s time to take all the decorations down and pack them away until next year, I always find it to be soooooo depressing…My house looks bare and Valentine’s Day seems too far away.  My niece came up with a great idea to combat these winter blahs.  She came up with a new holiday she deems, “The Festival of Snow and Light!”  She decided they were allowed to keep up any decorations that were more “winter” than “Christmas,” like snowmen, white twinkle lights, etc…What to do with the gaping hole in the living room where the Chrismtas tree used to be?  “Don’t worry, Mom,”  she said.  “We can make some more paper snowflakes to go on the windows in that corner.”

Aren’t kids great?  🙂

Some ways to celebrate The Festival of Snow and Light:

-paper snowflakes

-make “snow” art using cotton balls, glue, and construction paper

-read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats (watch in on youtube here)

-watch snow/ winter-themed movies like Snow Day

-go outside and make snow angels, snowballs, and forts.  Follow with hot chocolate, of course!

-make “snowball” cookies

-decorate your bedroom with white twinkle lights.  Bonus, they are probably on Christmas clearance right now, so it’s a great time to stock up!

Have fun and stay warm!
