Santa's Coming: Teaching Kids to Be Appreciative

If you haven't checked that calendar, here's a word to the wise. The holidays are quickly approaching which means sooner or later your child is going to be receiving a gift from someone. (Are you with me so far?) My only question to you is this: "How well do your kids handle disappointment" when that gift they are anticipating from Grandma, Uncle Fred or Sister Sue doesn't meet their hopeful expectations?

Applause Please, Kids Can Make Gifts!

Do you have little kids in the house? They love creative crafts and then, of course, they want to give their creations to someone they love as a gift, eager for applause. With Christmas coming, start a craft box with a few basic supplies so they can make amazing little gifts for family, friends and teachers. A handmade gift is always special and unique. There is pleasure in the making and then more pleasure in the giving.
