Today’s Gift Idea:
Here is today’s gift idea tip inspired by our featured picture book, NURSE CLEMENTINE. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Gift Idea: Consider a “party-in-a-box.” Gather all the things your child will need to host an “unbirthday” party – invitations, favors, the supplies for activities, etc.
An “unbirthday” party is one that celebrates other than a birthday, graduation, or holiday. It’s a party just for the fun of it.
Make sure the supplies are right for your child’s age.
Let her decide what kind of party she wants to have and who to invite.
Spend time together planning the party and record the fun with pictures or videos. Next year at holiday time you can bring out the pictures to enjoy this gift all over again.
Come back each day for another good gift idea for this holiday season. (Each day’s idea will also be posted on Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.) Read the whole story at THAT SPECIAL GIFT, PART 2.
