Make Room for Santa

Christmas is almost here. Just a few weeks left to finish the shopping, wrapping, baking, and cooking.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to stress you out! Instead, I would like you to stop for a moment and join your kids in their room, a playroom, a family room, or wherever they play. The anticipation of Santa bringing the presents is high now and that will make it easier for your children to part with some of their toys.

So, let’s make room for Santa. Help each child to pick out three to five toys they would be willing to donate. Together you can bring them to your favourite charity, your daycare provider, doctor’s office, hospital, drop-in center, etc. Be sure to call first to find out if they are accepting such donations at this time. If there is still some hesitation on your child’s part, talk about the toy first. When they got it, from whom, how much fun they had playing with it, and then take a picture of the toy with your digital camera for your child to remember.

May your holidays be filled with love, joy and laughter!
