HolidayopediaThis is our online book of holiday crafts for kids, the Holidayopedia. Besides crafts, you’ll find activities, educational printables, and other stuff for kids and families. Everything here is free.

This Holidayopedia is inspired by Karen’s Family Holiday Book.  We believe in intentional parenting.  Strong, happy families and kids don’t just happen, you have to make them happen.  Family holiday traditions are a very important part of making a strong family.  Make happy memories for your kids, make holidays fun.

We also encourage you to start a weekly tradition of Family Night.  Once-a-week Family Night is a chance to bond regularly with your children and a chance to teach them your values in an intentional setting.
