My son is 9 years old now and he definitely questions the “Season” in a different way as he grows older. I’m trying to show him the spirit of the season through a light that is not focused on just Santa Claus coming through the chimney – albeit that Santa is one of the symbolic ways we celebrate the magic. What are the things that you find are helpful for kids in this age to focus on through the holiday season? Our kids have friends of many religions, and even non religious, backgrounds and it’s very intriguing to me how each of us celebrates our beliefs. My daughter is 5 years old and in her brain EVERYTHING is magical. She still looks at me in wonder when I microwave her a hot dog ;) The Kuerig really blows her mind! For her, magic has a whole different meaning.
Growing older, just like many other things, I view the Season in a different, and even more meaningful way. Friendships and relationships are deeper and more important to me. I strongly believe that card making and letter sending is a wonderful way for us to connect to each other, especially from afar this time of year. Let’s encourage each other by reaching out in meaningful ways, whatever way you choose. It’s delightful to receive a phone call instead of a text, or a card instead of an email. Or even a hug instead of a wave. Am I right?
I’m hoping that these products, even if it’s just one, touches or inspires you. Even if it’s just the inspiration of the product and you aren’t actually purchasing it, I truly hope that the imagery and sentiments help ignite excitement and a sentimentality in your heart for the Season!
Tomorrow we are sponsoring a blog hop jam packed with inspiration using these new products. Stay tuned :)
We have Simon Brand Galleries that we fill with inspiration! You are also welcomed (and encouraged) to add what you make from the collection too! :)
