Looking for ways to spice up family celebrations this holiday season? Why not add some physical activity! Gather all of your family members and go caroling throughout the neighborhood, go skating or tobogganing or even go on a
nature scavenger hunt.
The LEAP™ HOP Family Resource has a lot of great ideas your whole family can enjoy and easily do indoors! To give the activities a holiday twist, try playing Freeze Dance (page 34) using Christmas carols, wrap and decorate empty boxes and use them as pins for Knock Down (page 44) or make ankle bells (page 104) and while playing Follow the Trail (page 32) have everyone pretend they are Santa’s reindeer visiting houses on Christmas eve. Be creative, have fun and get moving!
