One of the benefits of working for a university is that it closes between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Jack’s preschool is also closed, so I get to stay home with him for the week and be lazy. After a couple days of playing with new toys and eating too many Christmas cookies, we always get a little antsy and need to leave the house. So, each year I try to plan a few activities for us to do.
This year, the week is looking a bit lame. Here’s my list so far:
- See Moana
- Get Jack new shoes because his feet won’t stop growing
- Make jello with Jack (by his request)
- See a friend who also has kids for a kid date (possibly at the local trampoline park)
So yeah, I could use some help! Do you have any fun ideas for what to do for Christmas Break? If so, please please please share them in the comments!

Don’t forget your local library! We are near two, one had a couple hours last Saturday where we did about 6 different crafts. And the downtown location has simpler crafts on-going along with their usual toys.
And check any malls. One of ours is doing a nightly snowfall (not as big a deal in areas that don’t consider 60 degrees freezing).
And come the first Saturday of the New Year, don’t forget that Home Depot does a Kids Project, complete with nails and paint!
Oooh, thank you for the great tip! I’ll have to see if anything fun is planned for that week at the library or Home Depot. =)
Thanks for the Home Depot tip! We just registered our daughter for the January workshop–looks fun!
