Though the holidays are usually a pretty busy season, it is also the perfect time of the year to spend some quality time with your kids and your family! In between all of the feasts and presents, you may be ready to take a nap, but chances are, your child will be excited and in need of some play time. Keep your child occupied with this list of holiday crafts and activities from our day care center in Cortlandt Manor:
- Bake cookies- There is no better time of the year to bake cookies than during the holidays! If you haven’t had the opportunity to spend some time in the kitchen with your child, now is time! Cooking with your child is not only a fun way to fill your time, but it comes with so many benefits for your child! Find out more about these benefits when you check out our previous blog, Why You Should Cook with Your Kids. Looking for seasonal recipes that are kid-friendly? Little Birdie Secrets has some truly wonderful options for you!
- Holiday cards- Grab some construction paper, a pair of scissors for kids, some markers, and maybe even some glitter to make holiday cards with your child! They will enjoy getting crafty, and the lucky recipients of those cards will appreciate the fact that your child worked so hard to make their holiday special!
