The Holidays are a great time to connect with friends and family. It is a great time to embrace our many holiday traditions such as decorating the Christmas tree, hanging stockings, singing traditional holiday songs and taking photos with Santa.
Everyone has a different way to celebrate the holiday season. At Precious Lambs some of our holiday traditions include decorating the Christmas tree, sharing the holidays with all of our precious lamb’s families, enjoying the many wonderful dishes that our families are bringing in and connecting with the many different cultures that the families bring while learning their traditions and different ways of celebrating.
The children also enjoy a present exchange and making memorable keepsakes for mom and dad. My staff and I have also had the privilege of sharing some of the activities that we do on a day to day basis with our surrounding community. We also use volunteering as a way to honor the holiday. This year we hosted an arts and crafts event at the Broadway Knolls Apartments. We decorated cookies, enjoyed making hot chocolate and designed some wonderful works of art with the children and families. The children and or staff had a blast. What a wonderful opportunity, meeting some of the wonderful families that reside within the apartment housing communities.
