What to Do with Your Kids Over the Winter Break…

December 16, 2010 in Children,Life

School is almost out.  What are you going to do with the kids? Here are 14 ways to keep your kids from complaining about being bored over the winter break:

1-Plan a Family Game Night
2-Plan the Holiday Family Photo…and make it a fun production. I have 3 girls so they enjoy getting their hair done, getting manicures and pedicures and selecting just the right outfits…all things required to get ready for our private photo shoot! We even make a special grooming appointment for our dog, Mylo so he’s picture perfect on photo day!
3-Pick a day to select a whole new slew of books. Plan a few hours at your favorite bookstore or library. My girls are avid readers so this is high on the fun list for us!
4-Organize the family photos from the summer and create an online photo book that you can share with your other family members.
5-Have your kids invite their friends over for an afternoon of holiday cookie baking and decorating.
6-Try out some new recipes that you can cook once school is in. This will come in handy when you want something different once school is in and you don’t have the time to experiment.  You can  have the kids select the menus and even make the grocery list.
7-Bake homemade pizzas and enjoy “Pizza Night”!
8-Have the kids help you in gift selection and holiday gift shopping.
9-Declutter your kids bedrooms.  Do this one before Dec 25th…out with the old and in with the new!
10-Have a “Movie Marathon”.
11-Make a day of gift wrapping.
12-Learn how to make your own bows.
13-Plan the summer vacation.  If you live in a frigid winter wonderland right now, this activity will be a welcome escape from the cold!
14-Go visit family/friends that you haven’t seen in awhile…don’t wait for Christmas!!

Grab your calendar, sit down with the kids and pick which of these activities you will do over the holidays.  The key is to involve the kids in the planning.  Daughter #3, age 10 suggests that whatever the plan is, just keep it fun and easy going so you can always go with the flow!  Please share your unique ideas in the comments.

Enjoy Your Holidays!
