The last few days in our home have been filled with crying, whining, fighting, cabin-fever crazy kids. It seems like the closer it gets to Christmas, the more the bad behavior increases. Maybe we are all just sick of being with each other day in and day out since the weather turned really cold and we are stuck indoors more often. I am usually a pretty patient mama, but lately I have been prodded and poked and pushed to my limits.
One thing that I always have in the back of my mind is trying to come up with new activities to keep my kids entertained. Since my kids are still small, they need more guidance and instruction when it comes to the activities we do. My daughter is only in preschool but her teacher follows the same schedule as the school district, so the kids are out the whole week of Christmas. This can lead to less merry and more scary when it comes to everyone being at home together. So I thought that doing a fun round up of Christmas/winter coloring pages, activities and crafts might be just the thing to keep us all sane.
