Enjoy a holiday word game
Make learning the secret ingredient in your holiday feast. Entertain your child (and the rest of the family, too) with this age-old game. Pass out pencils and paper and ask people to make as many words as they can from the word "celebration." Or try a hands-on variation: Spell out a word with Scrabble tiles (or cardboard tiles you make yourself), and let your child rearrange the letters into new words.
