Christmas break is right around the corner. In fact, it’s less than two months away. This will be my first Christmas break experiencing my kids being home for an extended period of time (they are only in kindergarten and preschool). Check out these five boredom busters for helping the whole family get through Christmas break.
#1. Movie Marathon
One of my favorite things to do with my kids over any long break is to watch movies. We choose their favorite movies and just watch a ton of them. Don’t worry, we take time to eat popcorn and make snacks together.
#2. Dance Parties
Thanks to our favorite “cd” outlet, Family Christian Bookstores, we’re able to stock up on affordable CD’s that the kids love and have dance parties! My husband has great taste in music and the kids follow along with whatever he puts in. Luckily, it’s always uplifting and the kids can praise God along with us.
#3. Read Stories Together
What better way to bond than to read stories together? Our favorite “book” to read is the kid’s bible but we also love to read other books like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” Reading together truly is an awesome boredom buster for the kids.
#4. Head to a Bounce House
We love our local bounce houses and that is one way we beat the boredom around the holidays. Getting out of the house is always fun when you have three little boys.
#5. Visit a Nursing Home
Back in high school I used to visit local nursing homes all the time. One way to keep your kids aligned with the holiday reason for the season is to get them acquainted with a local nursing home.
I’m truly thankful that I can allow my kids to experience this kind of fun while they are out of school for a few weeks. We’ll also be heading to Family Christian Bookstores to check out their merchandise. Our favorite items to pick out are Veggie Tales and almost any Christian CD.
