As if we haven’t been at home long enough, the weather is getting colder and forcing us inside in many parts of the world. I have gathered a list of fun and educational activities to help your family keep busy and occupied at home no matter what the weather looks like.
winter break activities
I’ve gathered an assortment of fun activities to keep your kids busy. And within each category, there are things kids can do independently and things to do as a family.
When faced with an extended period of time off school, it’s exciting to be free from schedules and homework. Fear strikes when you realize no school means no routines and nothing for the kids to do all day. But have no fear! There are ways to make your time off fun, maybe even fruitful. You could even get a bit of mom time in!
Two weeks off school. Off schedules. Off homework. Off routines. Maybe even a few extra days off work for mom and dad. Sounds so good. Until reality sets in. 12 days of kids at home. No school. No schedules. No homework. No routines. YIKES!! If you or your child have ADD – double YIKES!!!
Holiday break can test the patience of any parent, especially if you live somewhere cold and get stuck inside. If you have a child with ADHD, the laid-back structure and inability to run off energy is a recipe for disaster. The key to your survival is have things to do at home with plans to get out of the house mixed in.
