How to keep busy while on school break?

Bored to death at home all day. I'm a full time college student with a 4 yr old. I have a month off from school. I need some new ideas for things to do with him. New games? Any new tv shows on? educational websites? Anything that we can do together? I just cant take anymore spongebob and matching games :)

  • When home with my 4 year old, I like to bake together, make cookie-cutter cookies or biscuits (he's actually getting quite good at it!), we made a gingerbread house and advent boxes this Christmas season. When we want to get out of the house, I prefer free stuff like library story times, free museum days, and playdates in the park.

  • Check your local library to see if they are offering story and/or movie times there...ours is. While you're there, check out a dozen books for you and your child to read together!

  • start him on other games targeted at his age level, 3-4. Go to a teachers supply store and you can get preschool workbooks that will give you tons of things to do with him. You have a fantastic opportunity to start preparing him for preschool or pre k now so take advantage of this special time off. if you want more ideas.

  • Some cities' community centers have special activities for kids, and/or Mommy & Me activities. Check with yours to see if they have anything available that would interest you and your son.

    Ditto the Library suggestions. Always a winner. :-)

  • Read books, do crafts, see if there are any places you can go together.
