What will your kids do on Winter Break? Hopefully they’ll do a little more than sit around and sulk and complain that they’re bored like most kids typically do. So during Winter break, break-out some cool activities that will not only keep them occupied but these cool activities will earn you some cool points as the most creative mom and dad ever! Check these out!
Jr MasterChef Competition – in your Kitchen
My kids have truly been inspired watching Chef Gordon Ramsey mentor schoolage kids while they whip up amazing dishes for the show Junior MasterChef. Well, it would really be cool to have your kids compete against each other making some dishes of their own. Whether it be crafting whimsical and fun cookie creations from the website Spoonful.com or re-creating the best Bento Box creations, your kids will get a kick out of getting messy with mom! Even show your kids a cooking book and have them pick recipes they’d like to cook up with your assistance, of course. And just think of the science and math lessons that go hand-in-hand with these cooking lessons.
I literally have thousands of pictures in envelopes and I keep telling myself that I will one day organize them and make scrapbooks. But even better, I’ll let my kids do it! Scrapbooking is a fun activity that can literally last for hours. Give your kids various baby pictures of themselves, grab a scrapbooking kit online at Yoyo.com or Walmart and let them add funny phrases and be as creative as they want putting their own baby picture book together. Add on various pictures of them at different ages over the years, and they can even create a book that’s a timeline of their little lives!
No kids I know want to sit indoors during their winter break. Outside is where the action is. So help your kids make it a true adventure!
