HOLIDAY SERVICES...  For those of you that are not affiliated with a church but would like enjoy a Christmas Eve service, view our list below in the calendar section for family services, midnight mass and candle light services.

EXPLORE THE HOLIDAY LIGHTS & DECOR... We drove around last weekend and saw some amazing houses that were decorated and lit up for the holidays. Take a drive around the Las Vegas Valley with your kids - we like to take cocoa and coffee and really explore the neighborhood displays.

'TIS THE SEASON TO GIVE BACK & MAKE A DIFFERENCE...  Check our VOLUNTEER CHATTER page for all of the details on specific needs from local non profits. It is not too late to impact someone less fortunate in our community. And remember the giving does not have to end after Christmas, make consistent giving part of your new year resolutions.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES & TRADITIONS THAT BUILD MEMORIES... Create holiday cards, tell stories, read to your child, cook together, get a caroling group together, decorate gingerbread houses. CONTINUE READING >

The hustle and bustle is almost over which means we can now all start to focus on what the holidays are really about, being together with family and friends. And remember to take time and enjoy that one week of the year between Christmas and New Year's when emails and phone calls slow down and relax with your families.  THANK YOU to all the amazing businesses in our community that help make ParentClick.com a free community resource for families.

WISHING YOU A WARM AND WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON.

~ The ParentClick Team


  Gift Giving; sentiment instead of money

The holidays do not need to just be about spending and extravagent gifts. In lieu of a purchased gift, consider creating new traditions and giving something that might have more meaning...

  • Make ORNAMENTS for family and friends with photos and decorate them.
  • Make a PHOTO ALBUM for family filled with memories.
  • Write a LETTER telling each family member what they mean to you.
  • COUPONS... Give a coupon to to do a chore the person hates. Give your kids a coupon for one week of no bed making. A coupon for a night of babysitting for new parents is a wonderful way to give some relief.
  • Make a personalized MUSIC CD of your favorite music selections.
    The recipient can then download it to an iPod.
  • Christmas morning SCAVENGER HUNT...
    On Christmas Eve hide packages around the house and make up clues for finding the gifts. This will make Christmas morning last a little longer and keep everyone busy.

  • Make a PERSONAL RECIPE BOX filled with your favorites or family-recipes. Give it to the recipient with homemade holiday cookies.
  • STRAWBERRY SANTAS... These are an instant hit with the kids and the parents and so easy to make for dessert or for the classroom party!  VIEW RECIPE >

For the family member that has everything, do something to give back...

  • Make a DONATION in their name to a special charity.
  • ADOPT A FAMILY: You can adopt a family through the Salvation Army and many other non-profit organizations by providing gifts and a Christmas meal to them.
  • VOLUNTEER with your family at a local non-profit agency.
