So that I don't go crazy over Christmas break with my daughter trying to get me to do something every second of our vacation, I cut up some slips of paper and placed them in a box. Each day, she gets to choose one slip out of the box and we only do that activity. She does not get to pick until her room is clean each morning. This seems to be working so well, that I will probably re-fill the box and use it during the summer too! Here are some ideas for activities:
Play at the park
Sandcastles at the beach
Play 2 board games together
Cook in the easy bake oven
What do you do to keep your child busy during breaks from school?
