The holidays are here!
Oh no - what now??
The 3 week holidays seem daunting I know.
We usually do some of the following:*
bake with mommy - my two boys, Josh and Matt, simply love baking cookies and devouring their creations afterwards!...of course we all need to lighten up a little and not worry too much about the inevitable mess!*
for the days that I cannot get off, I would print out word search 'homework' for my 7yr old and colouring pages for my 5yr old and we ooh and aah when I get home from work*
Play station and cartoon network is restricted they can only watch during certain times(I give my helper the 'schedule) it helps that we live opposite a park!*
I created a 2 page of Fun things to do with the Family and each child gets to choose something off the list every other day (things like hiring a DVD - miniature golf or creating a play etc)*
I encourage them(especially the older one) to read..so I would get books from the library and he would read and then has to retell the story either in his own words or act out the story with Matt
