It's only 30 days of vacation. Actually a little more.
For many families, January is the big test month of the year. Whether traveling or at home, the big challenge is to entertain the kids who are in full swing wanting to make the most of their few days of rest from school. After all, it is necessary right? The mind really needs this break to regain energy and return with everything for another school year.
But here for us: It is not easy to occupy this galley. We have to “roll around” to keep up with the pace and be able to be creative enough to guarantee the excitement. In the end, we will be finished but the mega happy child and this is the big reward.
So, to help you mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, uncle, aunt… you who have someone to entertain this vacation, we suggest some simple ideas to make these days fun:
The bladder war is a game that can be played on summer days. Besides having a lot of fun, it helps to develop reflexes, attention and team spirit. The only objective of the game is to launch the largest number of water balloons on the members of the rival team. The team that is least hit wins.
To promote a picnic there is no rule, you can join family, friends from school or just you and your child. The cool thing is to involve the children in the preparation of delicacies or to have a picnic with more people, ask each one to bring a plate. The place can vary as in a park or even in the backyard.
How about taking the little ones to the cinema? The best premieres of children's films happen just between the end and the beginning of the year, making the little ones and their companions be enchanted by this magical universe. But you can also promote the movie at home and invite your child's school friends to enjoy a good movie accompanied by lots of popcorn.
If there is a party that children will not forget, it is the Pajama party. Invite school friends, cousins and promote this little party that doesn't need a birthday to be held. Decide the space of the house, remove all the furniture and don't worry if there are enough beds for the guests – they will love to sleep in makeshift bags or huts.
They say that the favorite place in the house is the kitchen. So how about taking the kids over there? Promote a gourmet day with the little ones with simple recipes that require a lot of hands-on experience like cookies, cupcakes.
