Bring Summer Camp to Your House

Are you worried that the kids will be bored this winter? Turn your home into a makeshift summer camp. Come up with a list of things to do, including sports, crafts, and drama activities. Then, create a schedule for rotating those activities, along with other things you'll want to do – like going to the park, visiting the library, or taking day trips. Ask your kids to share their ideas, too, and consider grouping activities together according to certain themes they'd like to explore. For example, if your kids want to know more about aquatic creatures, plan on doing a fish craft during the same week that you visit the aquarium.
