Give back at the holidays

The holiday season is an ideal time to spread joy by giving to others. Here are some ways to make a difference.


Paint giant paper snowflakes

Make a one-of-a-kind snowflake by painting and cutting shapes of your choice from a sheet of newspaper. Unfold it at the end to reveal your design!


Host a cozy sleepover

It’s a perfect time of year to invite friends over for a sleepover. With a little planning, you can make it a night to remember.


Bake up pecan bread pudding

Looking for a comforting sweet treat? Try this dessert, which one member of The Week Junior's staff described as "fantastic!"


Celebrate family traditions

Your family may have special traditions, particularly during this time of year as the holidays approach. Experience the joy of making long-lasting memories together.


Make animal figurines from pine cones

This fun craft uses natural objects that are usually found on the ground and turns them into something special.


Go on an evening nature walk

As it starts getting dark earlier, it’s a good time to consider going on a walk at dusk (when the sun has just set) with your family. You may be surprised how different your walking route feels—and looks and sounds—at this time of day.


Bake up sheet pan nachos

It's easy to make loaded nachos for the whole family, or a group of friends, when you bake them in the oven. We top them with lime sour cream for extra zing.


Explore your local library

Libraries are some of the most magical places on Earth. You might be surprised to learn how much—beyond supplying amazing books—they can do for you.


Make cheesy veggie lasagna rollups

These savory rollups are a fresh version of an Italian classic. Butternut squash and sage fill them with fall flavor.
