5 Ways to Kindle a Grateful Spirit in Your Children this Holiday Season

Dec 10, 2015 12:00 AM

The holiday season is a wonderful time for the whole family to spend quality time together. Amongst the festivities, enwrapping gifts on the morning of December 25th rem

Encourage your kids to display an appreciative spirit this holiday season with these practical tips from Mad Science. After all, this time of year is about giving rather than receiving!ains the highlight for all children.

Send thank you cards

Lead by example, show your appreciation with a gesture, such as a thank you note. Even if your child is too young to write a thank you card, the thought will help them to better understand the importance of showing gratitude.

Give back to the community

A great way to build a sense of gratefulness in your child is to have them give back to the community. Allow them to donate their time at a local soup kitchen or purchase a gift for a toy drive. This will help them get in the habit of giving back which is rewarding in itself.

Say no

Sometimes a simple no followed by an explanation is needed. During the holidays, children sometimes get carried away with their wish lists. Explain to your child the effort involved in affording costly things.

Make handmade gifts 

A great way to limit the amount of money spent on gifts is to make them yourself. Help your child bake a batch of cookies to give to their grandparents or make a handmade craft for their aunt and uncle.

Encourage them to enjoy seasonal activities and festivities

When your child is involved in a special holiday, it will bring them and long lasting memories. Mad Science of the Bay Area offers their annual Mad Science Winter-wonder camp in conjunction with the city of Fremont. Encourage your kids to enjoy the whimsy of the holiday season with science based education and fun with Mad Science! Contact us today for details at 877-390-KIDS (5437).
