Home Alone For Christmas: 

Activities To Do With Your Children.

From Sarah: 

My parents were always home for Christmas.  Dad was a teacher. Mom was a nurse… Administrative. Somehow she always had the holidays off. 

Then when I was a single parent… I taught in school or ran one at home.  So I never had to work on Holidays.  

Then Danny and I got together.  Suddenly we were both working holidays at the park. 

Yes, people love to camp at Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

I think they are crazy.

It was hard having to work those first holidays. Bobby was gone so it made it easter.  I had something to keep me busy.
From Rosilind:

I’ll admit it – it was a lot easier preparing my heart to be alone on Christmas than it was to actually be alone on Christmas.

Okay – I wasn’t technically alone: I had my kids with me.  But a 14-month old and an almost 3 year old do not really understand Christmas.

After the initial depression wore off, I decided I needed to be proactive and come up with a plan of distraction.  Ever been there?

After a fun Facebook post where people shared their ideas, this is what we came up with!


Here are 10 activities you can do with your littles when you’re home alone for Christmas




My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
