It’s almost here…yes, the whirlwind of Thanksgiving and the holidays is almost here. You may be starting to get a little nervous or overwhelmed just thinking about it! But we have to try to remind ourselves that after we’re past the stress of making sure the turkey has thawed, or finding a gift for everyone on our list, we get to spend some amazing, quality time with our families and kids. The holidays and the downtime we do get also present great opportunities for teaching our little learners something new. We’ve partnered with Education.com to show you some of the easy and FREE ways the website can help you keep your kiddos engaged with learning while creating ever-lasting memories together.
Thanksgiving Play: Putting on a Thanksgiving Play is a fun way to teach your child about Thanksgiving history (and myths), and involve the whole family too!

Winter Science Experiments: Are your kiddos excited to spend some time playing outside this winter? On days when it’s a little too blustery to head out, these science experiments are a fun way to pass the time together and learn more about fall and winter weather!
