Winter Break Activities for Children 

We all remember how much fun winter break was- sleeping in, playing in the snow, spending hours with TV and video games while the parents were at work. While a bit of play over the break is fine, it is important to not overdo it. Here are a few tips and activities to help you balance your child’s play and school work over the winter break. 

Continuous Learning 

It is important for children to continue learning over the break. Precisely because they are not in school means that they are likely to lose knowledge they have gained. Kids need breaks to let their brains rest and recharge, but too much can be detrimental. By making learning fun, you will keep your children engaged both inside and outside of school. 

Stick with the Last Assignment 

Go back to the last topics your child was learning at school and use them as bases for winter activities. Perhaps she can write an essay about the last book she read, or write out and sing the alphabet. Have her prepare a quiz for the family that she can administer during dinner. Look over your child’s curriculum and develop a protocol for the winter. 

Take Field Trips 

Get your child out of the house with a local field trip with an educational bent- to a museum, zoo, or historical site. Larger venues may have winter camps for children you can investigate, but do not forget about smaller, off-beat museums as well. If you are going out of town for the holidays, it is a perfect opportunity to introduce new culture and history to your child. For best results, ask your child to suggest a destination.
