I need some ideas
Our local movie theater offers discounts for shows that start before 4pm mon-fri. All shows during these hours are $4.50 for adults and kids. I also take the kids sledding (if there is snow), or we go out and build a snowman (again if we get any snow). Also, check with you local library and see if they have story hours or reading programs. My kids take part in the ones and ours and they love them. Not only are they free, but the programs get the kids interested in reading. You could also go to the craft store and purchase items to make crafts. I found foam stickers and an construction paper keep my kids busy for hours. My daughter also loves to design and make her own bracelets and necklaces out of beads. Good luck.
This year will be visiting family and getting settled in our new place-just a rental for now, nothing spectacular. :)
Otherwise the park, movies, Monkey Joe's(indoor bounce house kind of place), going to the Shrine to see the Way of Lights, City Museum, Magic House, etc.
Love all if these ideas...Thanx soo much
We always have pj day. We stay in our pjs all day, pop popcorn and watch lots of movies. We bring out all the blankets and pillows and hang out in the living room. We don't do a lot of tv so the kids love it. I like to bring out the finger paints and craft supply's. I am hoping for some snow. I want to take them tubbing and maybe even snowboarding/skiing. But for the most part we like to keep costs low. If its cold we will go ice skating on the local pond. If its nice out maybe for a hike or a winter walk on the beach to see what we can find.
Lots and lots of snowboarding for some of the kids. Ice fishing, shoveling, snowman/snowfort building. Hikes and parks if it's warm enough. Swimming, crafts, video games if it's colder out.
My son is 5
we play chess
work on reading and writing
talk and play together
make blankets, cook , and clean
my dd only has a week and a half off so I don't have to plan much.
We like to look at Christmas lights this time of year. Some towns have set ups where you can drive through, or even walk through, to look at a bunch of lights. Zoo lights are usually really pretty too.
