  • Plan a teddy bear picnic
  • Set up a coffee bar and encourage parents to spend time with their children before heading to work
  • Host a board game night
  • Put together a recipe club and encourage parents to bring new dinner recipes to a potluck every couple of months
  • Invite a cookware consultant (Pampered Chef, etc.) to do a freezer meal presentation
  • Partner with local small businesses to host a holiday shopping fair
