As the economy recovers, many families will still have to put the brakes on Christmas spending. How does one cut down? How do we break it to the kids? What will the relatives think if we don’t participate in the gift frenzy? Families can do all three if they communicate the changes early, with loving intent and with assurances that the holidays will be about presence and not presents.
As the old song goes, “You can’t put a price on love” and this Valentine’s Day you can drive that point home by helping your kids say “I love you” with handmade crafts that involve renewing, reusing and recycling common items from your home.
