Winter break for most kids begins next week! For the first few days, most kids will just be so happy to be out of school that any activity will go. But once the holidays have passed, there will be several days when the “I’m bored!” chorus may start. It’s a good idea to have a list of activities ready now to be prepared.
If it’s not too cold, send the kids outside! Outdoor activities will burn more energy than most indoor. When properly bundled in coats, hats, snow pants and gloves, most kids can handle temperatures of 32 F and above for 60 minutes or more. As a general guideline, pay attention to wind chill when accounting for temperature. This handy chart from www.ok.gov outlines what temperatures – both hot and cold – are appropriate for outdoor play. Try these activities with your kids:
On those days when it’s just too cold to go outside, find fun things to do inside. There are tons of activities to do that will keep active minds and bodies engaged.
And if you and your kids get to the absolute end of your rope? Don’t worry, school starts again in just a few weeks!
