Happy National Family Week!

This week is National Family Week, a time to celebrate families of all shapes and sizes and the bonds that keep them together.

During the holiday season when we are surrounded by food and presents, it can be easy to forget the most precious gift of all—the time we spend with each other. Some of my favorite holiday memories are family traditions.

Cooking Together:

Every Thanksgiving, my dad takes over the kitchen. Many have attempted to help and many have failed. If you’re lucky, he might let you stir something. In case you’re not coming to Thanksgiving at my house, here’s an AMAZING collection of recipes created specifically for families to make together. One of the best features of this book is that the recipes are categorized by age level—i.e. there’s a recipe for the 3-year-old and the 11-year-old.

Playing Together:

The friends and family who will be at my Thanksgiving this year are BIG puzzlers. The night before Thanksgiving we start the border, and over the next few days we attempt to fill in the center. For the little ones (and not-so-little ones) who aren’t ready for a 1,000-piece puzzle, floor puzzles are a great option! This Grinch floor puzzle has big pieces that are just right for little hands.

Reading Together:

My mom is my reading inspiration. She instilled a love of reading in me from a very early age and read aloud to me every single night. Holidays were no exception. While there are plenty of holiday-themed titles to share, I like this one about a big sister reading to her baby brother because it’s perfect for all holidays and any time of year. Not to mention, I am a big sister to the very best little brother.
