Spread the love

All year-round everyone in the family is always busy with something. Parents can be very busy with work while the children are preoccupied with school or school-related activities. Christmas break is one of those few occasions when everyone can gather at home and do something fun and exciting.

The few days that you are at home with your children present exciting opportunities to create core memories with them. It is a chance to have long, lazy conversations with them to get to know them better. It is also the perfect time to catch up on your favorite TV shows or that new puzzle.

I have listed a few fun things you can do with children this holiday break:

Write Christmas cards together

Writing and sending Christmas cards and postcards is a fun tradition you can start doing with your children this holiday. Send cards to relatives in far-off places or to your little one’s godparents. You may even choose to send one to his friends, or even to a stranger. You can check online posts looking for people to send cards to the elderly in nursing or retirement homes.

And if you are looking for interesting cards to send, these beautiful Larry Alcala Christmas cards from UNICEF are perfect. You can get them for free for a minimum donation of Php1,000.00.

Play online games with them

The kids will appreciate it very much if we will spend time with them doing the things that they love. These online games can be tricky, but we will score a thousand “best mum” points if we will simply try. I tried playing Fortnite, one of my not-so-little man’s favorite online games and it was quite the experience. I am clueless about these games myself. But I did manage to survive a few minutes and got 45th place before another player managed to kill me. So it’s all good!

Teens and older children enjoy watching television to relax and pass the time. What better way to bond with them this holiday season than to watch their favorite films and TV series? Introduce some of your childhood favorites and be amused at how the children today get to enjoy them, too. I introduced my little one to Karate Kid and we had a blast watching the new spin-off series, Cobra Kai, together. He also enjoyed watching Back To The Future and has already watched all the films a few times. Some popular series that are worth checking out with your children are Stranger Things, Wednesday, and the new Avengers series.

Start a new hobby together

The Christmas break is also a great time to start a new hobby together with your children. Discuss what possible activities to choose from and then vote on the best one. You can start your vegetable patch or tiny backyard garden, learn a new language, or start biking together. Or maybe enroll in swimming or dancing lessons or learn to play a musical instrument together. You can even learn to paint or photography together. There are plenty of activities to choose from, just make sure you start with something that interests everyone.

Teach them new life skills or chores

Make the most of the holiday break by starting to teach the little ones age-appropriate chores. Allow them to help around the house with simple tasks they can perform. Smaller children can try are sorting and keeping their toys away, watering mum’s plants, or doing the dishes. The older kids, on the other hand, can start learning life skills like creative thinking and coping with emotions and stress.
