Keep em busy!
All kids have their own ways of being kept busy.
Hi Adele
I have also been looking forward with "trepidition" to these coming holidays.  For me, (very selfish, I know) I can sleep 20 minutes later.... So instead of 05:00 it is 05:20.  No sandwiches to make and no dropping off at school, save on petrol- it is going up tonight - 44c p/l.
My eldest daughter, Amber has organised enrichment programmes at her church and will be occupied with that mostly.  I have arranged that a friend takes her. Also the school that Amber is at, gives the children projects to do during the holidays.
For the youngest, Jasmin 9 yrs I have the following planned, I purchased a papermaking press at a Charity Shop and thought that would be ideal.  All our relatives live in the UK and normally for Christmas we make our cards ourselves, so I have lots of shredded paper, we have taken the photos  and she will be making the paper to fold into cards for Christmas, lots of seeds organic matter for her to mulch.  I know it is only June, but after these holidays things just go so quickly that I have allready started getting the Xmas presents together for my October parcel.  She has also learnt how to read music and will be practicing on her keyboard and make up songs for us.
Between cycling, and playing with the neighbours dog, she is quite upset to have her day end and loves not having to have keep quiet.   So a lot of craftwork for her.
Take care
