"Holiday Baking as Homeschool Curriculum" has some good ideas to help you use all the Christmas baking as teachable moments. (We haven't checked out all the links on the page, but the ones we have look helpful.)
Instead of making New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, exercise regularly, drink more water, or any of those other promises no one ever keeps . . . perhaps you’ll resolve to remember in the coming year. Savor the moments, tuck them away in your special jar, and then bring them out next year on New Year’s Eve, the way we plan to. I believe it could be a life-changing thing to do.
