Family Fun Inspiration for January 2019

No comments

Happy New Year! There’s something exciting about the promise of a new year.  I always have such a renewed energy at the start of the month. To help inspire you, here’s our bucket list for the month of January. We’re embracing the dark days, exploring the weather, learning about aerospace, uncovering new healthy favorites in the kitchen and working toward our learning to read resolution. 

P.S. If your small-fry are fans of PBS KIDS, Odd Squad has a new one-hour special. Check out Odds and Ends anywhere you watch PBS KIDS beginning January 21.
