With the holidays coming up, you and your children will have a whole lot of time on your hands. So, to make sure they enjoy the winter break, here are some fun bonding activities to do with your children at home:
There are several very easy three-ingredient cookie recipes than can not only keep your child busy for 2-3 hours but will also be a whole lot of fun. Don’t forget to let them lick the remainder of the batter in the bowl!
Turn your living area into an imaginary street for kids to play with their cars
It’s simple, very easy to prepare and will give the children an activity to enjoy at home. All you have to do is sellotape lines along your corridors and the area you’ll be using to form streets.
Build a tent with blankets
Bond with your children by building a tent made of blankets for the dolls and stuffed animals they own. It can be used as a reading corner or just a place to escape into and play for a while. You can make a DIY blanket fort by following these directions.
Play hide and seek
A great way to bond with the children and enjoy some time at home is to actually play together. Take turns playing hide and seek and laugh as your little ones hide behind curtains with their feet showing.
Choose age-appropriate board games for your little ones and enjoy playing memory games, word games, or fun games such as UNO and Snakes and Ladders or Jenga.
Make natural DIY face masks
Let the kids help you make natural face masks at home using simple remedies such as yogurt, honey, and bananas. They will enjoy seeing you a happy mom as well as applying the masks on themselves as well.
Face painting and role-playing
Pick a few fun characters or animals that are easy for face painting and have the children take turns impersonating them. Follow a simple step by step guide to make it easy. They’ll get to be a lion, cat or fairy for a while before turning into their favorite cartoon character.
Give them clear instructions to help you clean the house
Most kids absolutely love cleaning utensils. Give them a broom, mop or a window cleaner and a piece of cloth and they’ll be delighted.
Make a bubble bath
You don’t have to go swimming to enjoy a dip in the water. Turn your bathtub into your very own Jacuzzi by making a bubble bath.
You and your children can enjoy various activities bonding over simple DIY crafts. Whether it’s DIY Christmas activities, decorations or useful household objects you can both make together, it’s easy and will be a whole bunch of fun.
