Thursday, December 8th at 5:30pm
At Tahoe’s Connection for Families in Incline Village, NV.
Happy holidays, and welcome to the busiest season of the year for parents! During this month of merry-making and gift-giving, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and underprepared. To help families get organized, Ketshop cofounders Mari and Nick Harris will be leading a holiday prep workshop called “Surviving The Holidays.” We’ll help you define which traditions are most important to your family, and develop a plan to focus on good stuff. Following this plan will help your kids develop a reasonable wish list, share holiday responsibilities, and focus on the joy of giving during the holidays.
We’ll have free snacks and drinks, and onsite childcare is available upon request.
If you don’t live nearby or cannot make it on Thursday, no worries. We published a handy workbook so you can still organize from home. Learn more >
