Winter break is coming and surely, the kids are all excited as they take a break from preschool activities and stay at home for more or less than two weeks. However, sitting at home should not necessarily be boring for them. Here are some ideas that you can try to keep them engaged and learning:
- Bring them to a museum
A temporary break from a child care center in Orlando, Florida gives children more time to have fun and learn something from an educational visit at a museum. They can also interact with other children and gain new friends along the way.
- Help them learn to play a musical instrument
Learning a new musical instrument does wonder to your kids’ brain. You don’t need to spend much because nowadays, you can get learning materials online. There are plenty of instructional videos online and these can help your kids spend their time meaningfully as they acquire a new skill.
- Teach them baking
Baking some cookies or brownies is a fun way of bonding with your kids, and there’s no better time to do that than during winter break. The measuring process of baking also helps build up your kids’ mathematical skills. There are plenty of online recipes that you can explore and shop for your baking session.
