Wouldn’t it be brilliant if your diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure problems were just like a food allergy - and you could simply avoid that food, take your meds and you’d be all set?
Want to keep little ones entertained at your Christmas party this year? Make sure to plan ahead and put together some fun games and activities!
The best bet is to choose games that both grown-up and kids can take part in, that way underage guests won't have to spend the party off by themselves. And for an extra bit of holiday cheer, include a cookie swap or gift exchange so guests don't go home empty-handed. It's a great way to give them something to remember the party by!
Turning your workplace into a haven of holiday merriment is a great way to get your staff excited about the upcoming season.
To give your office a touch of charm this holiday season, select a theme around which to decorate your space. By adopting a specific decorating motif, you can ensure that your office space is cohesively decorated (a must for all those Type-A readers out there). It also serves as an aesthetically pleasing reminder of the approaching holiday.
You know the card you get in your child’s toy package that you are supposed to fill out and mail back to the company so you can be notified of a safety recall? I have shamefully never filled one out in my 18 years of parenting. Not one.
Want to create a Christmas winter wonderland in your own home, office cubicle or anywhere that you feel needs a touch of festive fun? It's always a great way to decorate for a holiday party or event!
A Christmas winter wonderland typically has snowflakes and icicles (although not the kind made from frozen water) along with color schemes in blue and silver or red and green. Here's a few ideas for winter wonderland decorations that will hopefully inspire and excite you:
Christmas gatherings are traditionally a time when friends and family join together to celebrate the holiday. However, if all the guests aren't on familiar terms, it may help to plan some icebreaker activities as a way to encourage people to make new friends and mix and mingle.
By beginning your gathering with these activities designed to help people get acquainted, you can ensure that your party guests feel comfortable while kicking off some merriment and fun! Here are few ways to get the party started:
Even though it's only October, I know how busy this time of year is and how quickly the holidays roll around!
So, stockpiling is a word that has been used a lot lately when it comes to using coupons when grocery shopping. Extreme Couponing shows people with an entire room of stockpiled grocery goods. What if we take that concept, tweek it some and stockpile for Christmas?
First pack all the breakable ornaments; wrap in tissue or place in appropriate ornament storage. Wrap any seasonal decorations (not on the tree) in tissue or packing paper. If you have bubble wrap that is even better to ensure there is no breakage! Make sure you label the outside of the storage box in large print what is on the inside. You don’t want to put the breakables on your storage shelf first and have heavier items placed on top and break them! Many people use storage bins that have Christmas colors of Red and Green so they know the season the items go with- a great idea!
Christmas party foods for kids should actually look like Christmas, with lots of red and green and plenty of white-as-snow goodies as well. The trick is to make sure there are plenty of sweets, of course, but to also offer kids some substantial fare, including some healthy choices.
