20 Simple Holiday Activities for Moms and Kids

We had a little too much of our holiday, we laze away – pretty much the exact definition of our holiday. It’s Friday and we have two more days left before the school re opens. Yay. Just two more days. Have you made plans for your weekend yet? Plan it now and make it as enjoyable as you can. I have listed 20  SIMPLE HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR MOMS AND KIDS. Come on, do at least three for your kids. Don’t be a buzz kill 🙂

  1. Start your weekend with a morning jog with your children. You gotta get those lazy bones moving again!
  2. Mini-DIYs – I miss making mini projects with my little ones. Maybe we’ll make a hand puppet this time. If it’s not your thing, most kids are currently hooked on loom bands!

  3. Record their height and weight – It’s the middle of the year, time to measure how much they’ve grown.

    They grow so fast, don't they? Check their height while you still can.

  4. Take them to the market. Yup, the wet and dry market. Show them around and introduce to them your favorite shops.
  5. Take them to the park and spread a picnic mat. Read them some books and blow some bubbles.
  6. Visit the beach and build a sand castle with your cute minions!
  7. Take them to the movie house.

  8. Treat them for some ice cream

    Ice cream pacifies them. Then back to being non-stop again.

  9. Videoke/Karaoke versions of most songs are now available on YouTube. Play Frozen’s “Let it go.” No child can resist that song! Evah.

  10. When was the last time you draw/paint something for your child? Try to be a Picasso this time. Make your child sit still and draw a funny portrait of him. I’m sure both of you will have a good laugh when the portrait is done.
  11. Make a pizza together.
  12. Allow them to invite a friend over for a play date.
  13. Or a slumber party perhaps?
  14. Watch your very own home videos. Watch how your kids react when they see themselves in the tv.
  15. Playing some video/online games with your boys will never be boring. Play with them and show them how cool their mom is.

  16. I remembered mom taught my kids “tumbang-preso” “luksong-baka” “patintero” some of our country’s favorite street game. So yeah, why not play these games (from back home) with them?
  17. If it’s not your thing, how about a hoola-hoop challenge?
  18. Or take them to the Timezone! Give them a carousel ride or play bowling with them.

  19. Just sit with your children on a bench outside and relax. Enjoy the fresh air. Play a 10-minute-silence game. See who among your children will talk first.
  20. Turn the lights off, open the tv and play your favorite dance music on You Tube. Dance like crazy!

And most of all, give them some hugs-and-kisses-filled holiday!
