Kido Tip 1. Get outside.
It’s possible you might need to recuperate from a cookie or gift binge (or both!) this weekend, and will be in need of a breath of fresh air. Bundle up and take the kids outside for an adventure.
Kido Tip 2. Back to routine.
For many of us, this weekend will be the last before our children return to school. After you've cleaned the house of holiday decorations and stocked the fridge with healthy treats for the upcoming school week, plan some family time to play cards or watch old Charlie Chaplin films. To help ease back into your regular routine— tuck the kids into bed early Sunday evening—and curl up alongside them to read a good book together.
Kido Tip 3. Make a date.
Some of us welcome the return to a more normal, structured life. Others dread the school/work schedule and a world without candy canes. Either way, this is a great weekend to organize the upcoming week around a coffee, running, or movie date with a good friend for the upcoming week. Start the year off with treating yourself right!
