31 Ways to Reconnect with Children in January

January brings the snow
But hark, the root begin to grow
From the "Crowning of the Year” by Juliet Compton-Burnett.

With January here, we say goodbye to December and goodbye to 2021. Out of the past comes new opportunities for renewed connection and growth with children. Our January calendar offers plenty of opportunities for just that. Start off by making a bucket list, give your playspace a refresh and bake and make with your children all month long. We hope you will follow along for this month and the rest of the new year!
