Every year about this time the kiddos come home for a well-deserved winter break.
But with all the festivities and hustle of the holiday season sometimes we all just need a quick list of things for them to do that don’t turn them in to couch potatoes or little screen zombies.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to keep the kids happy, engaged and (shhhhh!) learning over the winter break. We won’t tell them if you don’t.
1. Personalized Reading Recommendations:
Get ready for the kiddos by stocking up on books and movies now! Tell us a little bit about your child and we’ll do the rest. Plus our Ask a Children’s Librarian services are always available to help with those projects due in January.
Classic car games, like this one, can be a great opportunity for family bonding and lots of laughs. They work great at home, too. You can also check out puzzles, classic board games and a karaoke machine from our Library of Things collection.
Want to make screen time meaningful? We have several virtual storytimes for children, including Family Storytime and Bilingual Family Storytime planned over the break plus our Past storytime videos are also available to watch on demand on our YouTube Channel or Facebook page.
As an added bonus, Meet the Author: Mac Barnett video will also be available to view on-demand on our Facebook page until December 31.
