Now that the holidays are here and the kids are home from school, we are scrambling to find things for them to do to keep them occupied. Hearing “I’m bored” is a common phrase in many households. Keeping our children from getting bored and staying out of trouble can become very pricey.
There are many creative and free things we can do with our children at home while they are on their holiday break:
Family Talent Show: One great activity is to put on a family talent show. This is a fun activity is perfect for all ages and has endless possibilities. The family can individually or as a group show off their talents to each other or even extended family members. Creating a “set” and making costumes is also part of the fun of the talent show.
Watch Home Movies: What children don’t love to watch themselves on television? Get out home movies and some popcorn and enjoy watching yourselves!
Baking: All children love to bake. Not everyone is able to make elaborate cakes and pies, but we can all make simple cookies and cupcakes. Children love to help with measuring, pouring and mixing of the ingredients. They will have fun rolling our dough and cutting cookies into shapes. Have fun with your children over the holiday break. Remember; our best memories are the ones we spend with our families!
