Keeping the Holidays CHILL With Kids
Peace. Joy. Love. Magic. These are some of the words that many of us would use to describe the holidays but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, do we usually feel that way all season? Especially with kids – this time of year can be anything but peaceful! I am all about simplifying and decluttering life & that includes a lot of the stress that comes with it! I want my kids to experience the beauty of the season in its entirety, so this year we have made sure they are involved and excited about the process! If you are looking for ways to keep the CHILL in Christmas this year, then stick around!
I love finding ways to simplify life with kids – especially times like the holidays. It keeps everyone in great spirits & allows everyone to be able to enjoy the time together! Here are some ways you can simplify the season with your family:
1. Set expectations.
Tell your kids what to expect. Explain how you will be going to meet new family, staying out late some nights, etc. Having them know the details helps them understand it!
2. Give your family a new focus.
As a family, choose to give less to each other and more to others in need.
3. Learn about the reason for the season.
Allow them to get into the reason behind why we celebrate Christmas rather than just anticipating gifts & treats! The holiday can be simpler if we make it that way!
4. Choose four gifts: something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read.
5. Dress them so that THEY are comfortable!
I cannot stress this one enough. Yes, there are super cute tuxedos and ball gowns for toddlers to wear during the holiday season, but if you are trying to have a CHILL holiday. skip on the fancy clothes & find something your kids love that is comfortable for them to wear throughout all the holiday festivities!
Every year I find great options for holiday clothing at OshKosh! They know how to make clothing that fits kids like a glove, is SUPER adorable, and is comfortable for them to wear. In fact, I have already received so many compliments on Ryland’s corduroy pants this season & you know what? He loves them too! That’s a win in my book because that means no tantrums before holiday church service and no whining about wanting to change halfway through family pictures! There are so many more things on our mind during this time of year – kids clothing should be the easy part!
I promise that whether you shop OshKosh online or in store, you will have more options than you can imagine for the perfect holiday look! I encourage you to pick up something cute for NYE too!
What kind of style do you love for your kids? Shopping can be a breeze when you head to OshKosh!
