BLOG- Mom working with little kidsThe few days of gap time between Christmas and New Years is too short to get back into school, but for many of us, it's too much time off too.

Here are two writing activities to help you find a happy blend of productivity and fun during the holiday gap.

Thank You Notes. Now is a good time to get those thank you notes underway! Watch a short video that teaches kids how to exercise their descriptive writing skills and write a memorable thank you note at the same time.

Holiday Toasts. With New Year celebrations coming up, now is the perfect time for the kids to compose holiday toasts to accompany your family's New Year traditions. Click on the link to watch a short video on how to guide your kids to craft the perfect toast that's all their own -- and practice their public speaking skills too.

Enjoy, and have a Happy New Year!
