EEEEKKKK school vacation weeks are coming up!
It's cold out, what am I going to do with these kids?????
We just got some momentum going after the holiday break, will my child lose skills!!!!?????
Do you have worries like this? If so, know you are not alone, take a deep breath and then read on! We are giving you 5 super easy ideas to keep your kiddos engaged and learning over the upcoming break.
Don’t limit this to books. How about magazines, newspapers, online articles, funny poems, jokes, recipes, or the steps of a science experiment to conduct? Maybe check in with your local humane society and see if any animals would enjoy being read to.
2. Have each family choose a new skill to learn.
Read articles, watch youtube videos, take notes, and have fun! Outschool is a great resource for fun and engaging kids courses. Here are some other ideas
3. Play a game.
Games can target language, literacy, math and social skills. Some of our favorites include:
4. Have family members take turns planning a meal.
Give the kiddos a budget and let them write out the menu, research and read recipes, create a shopping list, estimate the cost and then you can support the actual cooking experience.
5. Do some crafts.
This encourages listening, following directions, fine motor skills, and often reading and math as well. Equally as important, crafting encourages creativity and imagination.
Hope this helps you and your family truly enjoy the time together. If we can be of further support, please don't hesitate to reach out for a free consultation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
