Tips for Creating Family Traditions

PBS encourages families to take part in traditions new and old. PBS Parents provides additional ideas to create meaningful traditions for the family such as:

  1. Write an annual letter to your child. The holidays are an appropriate time to mark your child's growth with a special message that will be cherished for a lifetime. Seal letters and store them in a keepsake box until they are old enough to read and enjoy them.
  2. Do a Secret Santa gift exchange for charity. Turn the tables this year. Instead of buying a present, make a donation or spend time volunteering for a charity of the giftee’s choice.
  3. Make a family walk an annual event. Walking is a great way to spend time with each other, and work off those extra gingerbread cookies! Set aside time — even if it’s 30 minutes — to get outside and stretch your legs with the family.
  4. Leave a legacy that lasts (and helps the environment). Each New Year's Day, plant a tree in honor of your child(ren). Hold a special ceremony in which everyone in the family plays a part in planting that year's tree, and take lots of pictures, both when the tree is planted and over the years as it grows.
  5. Take part in a community service project as a family. Designate a day that will be devoted to serving others in your community.
  6. Select a recipe and make it a tradition to make it together as a family, giving each family member a task in preparing it.  In honor of the Curious George Holiday Spectacular, make monkey bread or a banana dessert.

More details and ideas can be found on the PBS Parents website.
