Make This Holiday More Than Just Summer Courses

Blog - 25th Dec

Apart from summer workshops and courses which indulge your kids in various arts, crafts & miscellaneous activities, there are a lot of things you could get them to do at home and around.

  • Involve them in the holiday cleaning act. Cleaning out their shelves, filtering the unwanted from the wanted, and organising their study or their playroom are some of the things they could do. It will not only keep them occupied but also make them aware of cleanliness.
  • Get them to dig out stuff and make some DIY things. Be it using an old cloth to make pillowcases, creating some fun installations with old toys which they can proudly showcase in their rooms or making simple room decorations.
  • Reading books and discussing what they read with the family. Maybe enacting short stories which they read. That will make things more fun & engaging.
  • A trek to close by hills or lakes. Some time with nature will get them to wonder about other living beings like plants, birds or animals.
  • Trips to unexplored historic or scenic spots. Museums may sound boring but if made interesting by explaining things, or some further exploration is done on the net or with books after the visit-they are a good bet!
  • Some cultural exhibitions & festivals, where they get exposed to different types of cuisines, arts & people are also good places to spend some time.
  • Household chores: Get them interested in the most basic & everyday things of life; be it cooking, or fixing a bulb, or tightening the screw of a chair. Such chores could trigger an interest or curiosity in the working of things & maybe build insightful conversations between you and your child.

Make this holiday special! It could evolve the relationship you share with your child.

Kids being kids don’t just travel from A to B but take time to get accustomed to B. The weather, food, people- anything & everything can make them happy or tick them off. Parents need to be extra careful while planning a trip with their little ones,  else they can jeopardize the possibilities of a good holiday season.
