The holidays are almost here! While parents are busy shopping, wrapping gifts and preparing for family gatherings, it’s easy to forget how you are going to entertain your kids when school gets out for winter break. Children are often excited for a much needed break from waking up early and homework but once the excitement wears off they can easily get bored.

Get kids involved in preparing for the holidays. Have a family craft day; make decorations to put around the house or ornaments to hang on the tree.  When baking holiday cookies, let them help. Have kids decorate a few special cookies for Santa to eat on Christmas Eve!

Teach young children about the importance of giving back during the holidays by taking them to volunteer for a local charity. If you can’t donate your time, donate clothes that have been outgrown. When you are out shopping, have kids pick out a toy to donate to Toys for Tots or a similar charity. Even small gestures can make a huge difference to someone in need.

Take your kids to get out some of their pent up energy with a day at Adventure Park USA!  We have a variety of rides and attractions that will be a hit with kids of all ages.
