Watching our children grow up is challenging but having them loose interest in the family holiday traditions is harder. One option is to involve them in creating their own version of the traditions. In this case (Christmas 1998) I read The Night Before Christmas but gave my daughters, Amanda – 14 and Michelle – 10, the challenge to insert appropriate sound effects. You can enjoy their interpretation. This project idea can be used throughout the year and grandparents, uncles, and aunts will enjoy the result.
