After an exhausting month of shopping and planning winter break activities, is there anything more rewarding than the look of wonderment and pure joy on your child's face on Christmas morning? Bright eyes and wide smiles will make all the holiday hustle and bustle worthwhile! In the meantime, here are a few more things to tack onto your to-do list to make Christmas morning a little more magical for you and your family.
It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates. This, of course, keeps kids busy outside with friends while parents are bustling around buying holiday gifts, readying the house for guests and more. Ice skating is not only a great sport but also one of the best outdoor activities and winter weather pastimes for families. Whether your kid is a beginner or a star athlete, a boy or a girl, a figure skater or a hockey player, or just having fun with friends at the local frozen pond, here are the coolest ice skate styles from Amazon, Target, L.L. Bean and Urban Outfitters that any kid will covet.
Once all the holiday parties have died down and parents are back to work, the winter doldrums start to set in. Just because it's cold outside, that doesn't mean outdoor activities are out of the question. On the contrary, playing in the snow is one of the best ways to burn off (or chill out) all that pent-up energy. Plus, besides skating and sledding, there are all sorts of creative toys, games and even productive — snow chores, anyone? — things to do in the great, winter outdoors for kids and they're all available on Amazon now.
Whether your kid is trying to master the art of comedy or just needs a break from the electronics, a joke book can be a great way to get them reading. Reading jokes books can help your kids build vocabulary, improve social skills and develop problem-solving skills by figuring out silly riddles. Check out these cool, clean and kid-approved joke books from retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Walmart.
Lady A nselman stood in the centre of the lounge at the Ritz Hotel and with a delicately-poised forefinger counted her guests. The...re was the great French actress who had every charm but youth, chatting vivaciously with a tall, pale-faced man whose French seemed to be as perfect as his attitude was correct. The popular wife of a great actor was discussing her husbands latest play with a Cabinet Minister who had the air of a school-boy present at an illicit feast. A very beautiful young woman, tall and fair, with grey-blue eyes and a wealth of golden, almost yellow hair, was talking to a famous musician. A little further in the background, a young man in the uniform of a naval lieutenant was exchanging what seemed to be rather impressive chaff with a petite but exceedingly good-looking girl. Lady A nselman counted them twice, glanced at the clock and frowned. I cant remember whom we are waiting for! she exclaimed a little helplessly to the remaining guest, a somewhat tired-looking publisher who stood by her side.
