The year is already coming to an end and the holidays are coming, and moms are already starting to think about what they can do during this period with their baby boys. So we look for activity tips for children that can be very useful during these “rest” days for children, of course.
Not all families have the possibility to travel on vacation , for N reasons be it financial or even because the parents do not take a vacation during this period. So if the money is short there are activities for children that spend very little or some that do not spend anything at all, and children have fun for real. What we can’t do is leave them idle in front of a TV or on the Internet all day, not that they don’t like the idea, but because there are really healthier programs to do. And who said fun can’t be at home?
Here are some suggestions:
Day with friends – How about inviting friends from school for an afternoon at your house, showered with popcorn, games and a cool movie. You can combine with the parents and take turns at the friends’ house too, the party between them is always guaranteed.
Cooking day – What do you think about making a different menu and preparing to have the best helpers, our children? On a day-to-day basis, they may be more likely to hinder us in preparing food, but it can be a fun time if it is a meal prepared by everyone together. Let it be a simple hot dog, but let them participate by cutting the bread, passing the mayonnaise or even setting the table, who said that mealtime can not be one of the fun activities for children by the way?
Pretending Day – Do you know those children’s books with children’s favorite stories? Why not promote a delicious afternoon reading the children’s stories in a creative and fun way. Let them choose the stories to be read, have fun and encourage reading by the little ones.
A delicious picnic, the kids love it
Picnic Day – Do you know those movie and cartoon picnics, with towels on the floor, fruits, sandwiches, juices and everyone sitting around? Why not put it into practice with children? You can choose an outdoor park where you have a playground and space to fly a kite, run, ride a bike and other activities for children or make this mess in the living room, after all, what matters is the game.
Cabaninha Day – Who never played cabaninha in childhood? Blankets, sheets, chairs and a broom can become a palace in the children’s imagination, just set up and let their imagination fly away.
Theater day – That children love theater, we all know, but what if it is played by themselves? Leave options beyond the carnival and halloween costumes they already have, mom and dad’s clothes and let them dress up and present a theater, can dads be the audience?
Play Dough Day – Which child doesn’t enjoy playing play dough? Besides being fun to handle, it is an activity for children that puts their creativity into practice and even adults can participate. Food made of play dough, pets and anything that comes to your head can be made with play dough. They can be made homemade with flour and dye or bought at stationery stores for a reasonable price.
Statue playing day – This is a game that most daddies know well, just turn on the sound and put the kids to dance, when the chosen leader says “STATUE” the music must be turned off and everyone will be immobile, the one who staying longer without moving is the winner.
Dia do gato mia – This game can be really fun if everyone participates. In a totally dark room, everyone must hide, except the one chosen to start the search. Blindfolded, you should start searching, and when you touch a person, you have to say “cat meow”, and whoever was touched “meow”, and the person’s name has to be said if they hit the person should leave the room. Remove objects that break and may hurt the environment, so accidents are avoided.
All the options given above can be very fun for both boys and girls, just use your creativity and have fun with these holiday games. Board games can be great options too and when you want to enjoy the beautiful day, there are several options for public parks, free events during this time of school holidays and also why not get to know your city better, taking a tour with the children. With each tour, we always discover places that we never imagined, even if we lived for years in the same place. Visit the website of the city hall of your city , they always divulge events and information about the locality and GOOD VACATION!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
