The things that come to our mind when we hear the word “holidays” are utmost relaxation, a break from the daily monotonous schedule, a visit to the near and dear ones, cakes, home made delicacies, party, fun and much more. Holidays, that time of the year when the birth of the holy Jesus is celebrated in full swing, announcing the arrival of a new year. With all the celebrations happening in such a short span of time, there seems to be a long list of holiday to-dos. Holidays bring along with them a feeling of festivity, with joy and happiness all around. While on one hand, you are in such a festive mood, you can’t help but switch to a lazy mode, lazing around in a continuous sleep fest.
A part of the excitement related to holidays is, for the anticipation of the holiday traditions, some people have created over time along with their families, like going to some place, eating together, preparing a holiday recipe, or any other activity the family members do together in every holiday season. These traditions serve to bring family members together and create a sense of bonding and love. That is what holidays are about, right? Love, together-ness and happiness.
With kids around, the moms and dads might find it hard to take out some time for their own leisure activities. Holidays can be a great time for getting along with your children and doing stuff with them, letting even your own inner child out. But kids get bored very easily and then it becomes very difficult to handle them. Therefore, a parent can make advance plans for the holidays to keep their child busy and involved.
You can start by making plans in a week advance, and also letting your child participate in this planning. In this way, they cannot complain later about the activities if they don’t like it. Activities can range from indoor fun to the outdoor games.
If it isn’t too windy and chilly outside, you can go on picnics with your kids. Making a treasure map with clues to find some treasure like a little treat can make your kid feel thrilled. Make your own little games with minimum craft supplies.Games like snakes and ladders, pin the tail on the donkey will keep the children busy and occupied for some time. What more can be better than coloring indoors, a fun and creative activity which will bring out your child’s inner-artist.
