Ways to Keep Your Child Entertained This Christmas
Christmas time is often associated with days and nights spent celebrating the holidays with your entire family, but with COVID-19 numbers exponentially rising, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising against large holiday gatherings this year, in an effort to slow the spread of the deadly coronavirus. But that doesn't mean that you and your family can't have a whole lot of fun anyway this holiday season. From baking each of your favorite Christmas cookies to decorating every inch of your house, to enjoying a Christmas movie, there are endless Christmas activities for kids that will allow your household to safely celebrate the holidays together all season long.
