November/December Newsletter

With November fast approaching, Remembrance Day crafts are a creative way to include children in the honouring of the sacrifices of members of the armed forces during times of war. Have you ever thought why Remembrance Day is celebrated on November 11th? The First World War was formally declared over "at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.

Why Poppies?
A Canadian doctor, John McCrae, wrote a poem in 1915 about the devastation he saw in the Flanders area of Belgium and in northern France during the First World War. The land was destroyed by terrible battles, and many men were buried there. But despite the devastation of the battle, the wild poppies survived.  Hence the poppy became the symbol of Remembrance Day!

Christmas traditions!
Christmas comes but once a year, and picking out the perfect tree can be the start to a new family tradition! This can be a rewarding experience as your child helps hang candy canes and homemade snowflakes on the tree. Or you may choose to visit your city and celebrate with fireworks.  Or if your child likes animals some farms in the city celebrate the holidays with Santa visits to the animals, and craft activities.

Go on a Holiday Lights Tour!
Have you ever thought about going on a holiday lights tour? Take your children for a car ride, put on some Christmas tunes, and drive around to homes or neighbourhoods to observe the over-the-top Christmas lights displays! You can have a fun game identifying colours with your children!
We would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!
