Winter break was fabulous!
We languished in pyjamas and played board games, watched movies, and read books. We played tourists in our own city, exploring new sites and catching events downtown.
So, no one was happy about going back to school this morning. Since it’s going to be a rough week, I thought why not do a few things to cheer everyone up?
Just because winter break is over doesn’t mean family fun has to end. You can put a positive spin on back-to-school with a few simple activities that might take the edge off the blues.
1- Have a family back-to-school dinner. Celebrate by cooking up a favourite meal, order in, or go to a family restaurant.
2- Pack a special back-to-school lunch and include a personal handwritten message.
3- Kids don’t often get homework the first day back, so play a board game or watch TV together.
4- Don’t just ask kids how their day was, ask about all the friends they missed.
5- When they get home, let kids crank up their favourite songs. Listening to music or dancing is a great way to unwind.
Stay tuned for more books, activities, games, and movies to keep learning interesting through the year!
