Christmas is everywhere you look, so take this opportunity to teach your child about the things you see. Since this time also marks the early winter in most areas, taking a walk around the neighborhood or to a park will likely yield plenty to talk about. Walk around churches to inspect the nativity scenes.

Take a walk in the snow and build a snowman (top him off with a Santa hat.) Take a dive to look at all the Christmas lights. Pick a different thing to talk about during each shoping trip, focusing on the things that interest your child or that are a part of your own family’s celebration. This is also a great time to reinforce colors since there is such an abundance of green, red, silver, and gold.
