The SV Toddler Holiday Planner (2016)


Welcome to the 2016 Holiday Planner!

What a fun time of year to be Silicon Valley Toddler! You all know how much I love sharing events and activities for families, and this season is full of them, from old school classics that I loved as a child (e.g., Christmas in the Park) to new celebrations that make me excited to go exploring (Winterfest at Avaya Stadium, for example). There is so much going on in the months to come, and it's a fun challenge to capture all that fun in one list.

If you enjoy this planner and my other SV Toddler posts, PLEASE consider doing your Amazon shopping via the links/search bar below. Doing so benefits SV Toddler, at no additional cost or hassle to you. Choose a displayed product, or delete "Melissa & Doug" and search for anything Amazon sells (which is everything!).

Thanks for your support! Now enjoy (and share!) the list!
