Ways to Keep Kids Busy During Winter Break
Holiday experiences, short trips, and local activities
“It’s Beginning to Look at Lot Like Christmas” was first written over 70 years ago. In the decades since, parents have agreed upon one thing: Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
What about all those new toys they just got for Christmas? Won’t that keep them busy? No, of course not. Those new toys are meant for one hour of excitement before retiring into household clutter for the year.
Here are some ways to keep the kids busy and get you out of your anxiety-inducing, holiday-cluttered house:
