  • Sorry, I don't make any plans for Christmas break...I let my teen sleep, play video games, enjoy his 10 days off of school.

  • You could maybe take them to the park, if it's not to
    cold, or play board games, or crafts like making
    Stuff to go on the christmas tree.

  • I don't manage their Christmas break, since I work full time its hard for me to do things with them. My older son will have wrestling practice in the mornings on break, but I'll let them catch up on sleep, play their video games and hang out with friends. We live in such a small town there is plenty to do with friends, whether its sledding (if we get more snow) watching movies, kids get free bowling one day, and video keeps will keep them busy and out of trouble.

  • don't schedule my dd break but try to find things for her to do. She gets plenty of things to do for presents.

  • I would talk to them about what they wanted to do... I wouldn't worry too much about keeping them entertained, if they have movies, books, video games, etc. then they can just play with what they have and what they get for christmas...

  • Drive around to look at Christmas lights, go to a park, walk around at the mall, bake cookies, invite their friends over.

  • I invite their friends over since most of their parents are at work. We visit the patients in the hospital, make them cookies etc.., play scrabble or cards or watch a movie just enjoy spending time with them.
