During this holiday season 2020 take the time to nurture self and ‘Ohana.
Consciously direct aloha toward yourself and let it spill over to those around you. Aloha is ever present and joins us to one another.
In this time of giving, know that it is a gift to the world when we cultivate aloha for self because a full heart expresses compassion in the world.
Our "Aloha for Self Guided Meditation Exercise" is online, for ages Kindergarten to Kupuna, on demand, at Mālama Club.
STRATEGY FOR DECEMBER
Family schedules can be grueling during the holidays but remember that the most important part of the season is spending time with people you love.
When you add learning to your quality time, it will enhance special moments with your children and support their success. Here are some things you can do:
Include keiki in meal prep and baking
Make holiday greeting cards and gifts
Explore where you live
Grab your masks and head out to do some exploring!
Board games, card games, pictionary anyone?
Games are a great way to enjoy each other
Reading together develops your child’s reading and comprehension skills
RECIPE OF THE MONTH
SWEDISH COFFEE CAKE
This is a special Christmas morning treat. It also makes a nice gift for sharing.
You will need:
2 cups sugar
Dash of salt
1 cup melted butter
2 cups flour
2 tsp. almond extract
In a bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, and salt.
In a separate bowl, blend the butter and flour, and then combine the mixture with the egg, sugar and salt mixture. Add almond extract.
Grease and flour a 9 x 13 pan. Glass works best. Pour the mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with sugar and top with slivered almonds.
Bake at 325F for 30 minutes.
