8 Tips to keep your kids engaged this Holiday Season
Holiday season is here. Holiday shopping, traveling and family get-togethers take over the usual routines easily. Kid’s activities and academics slow down as well, between school holidays and classroom parties. Here are some tips to keep the kids engaged even when they are on their devices which seem to rule their free time anyways.
Readers are Leaders. Encourage reading on their devices by asking them to find out about current events, research holiday traditions, or take a deeper dive into their favorite hobbies. Introduce family favorites related to the holidays. Encourage the family to give books as gifts.
Holiday shopping and Financial Literacy. Teach children the importance of a budget and how to stick to it. How do sale prices affect the budget? Let them help with online shopping to sharpen those research and computer skills.
Math Measures in cooking and baking. Measuring and following a recipe is a great practice for both math and time management skills and kids are more likely to try new things if they’ve been involved in the cooking or baking.
