Winter break is a time to relax and forget about school stress. However, the holidays are not an excuse to stop learning. Keep your child's mind in action all winter break with these fun ideas.

Winter Learning Can Be Fun Too

December is here, winter break is just around the corner, and your children will soon be free from any school-related stress (a least for a little while). Winter break is often a time for youngsters to forget about what they learned in class and let their brains get a little lazy. But that doesn't have to be the case this winter. You can always keep your children learning. Children often associate learning something new with school and books, but it doesn't always have to be this way.  Here are some fun learning activities to try out this month.

The Magic of Books

Books can be an excellent source of learning, even children's books and fantasy books. Reading can take you to faraway places and teach you about amazing new cultures. Why not use this winter to learn about how other cultures celebrate their holidays? Christmas is not the same here and in China, after all! Head to your local library or favorite bookstore and pick up some holiday related books. If your children are not really into reading, you can also try out some of these tips to inspire them to love books.

Handmade Holiday Gifts

What about starting a new holiday tradition at home? Do a gift exchange at home where the only condition is that the gifts should be handmade. Gifts will mean so much more because everyone took their time to come up with a creative and personalized idea and made it come to life with their own hands. If you want to stay in the DIY gift lane, you can also have your children help you make your holiday cards. Have them create the designs and write down their good wishes. Penmanship is always a useful skill to have, and they will be working on it with their holiday cards. See, learning can be included in most activities! If you’re looking for more ways to boost your child’s education, try out a tutoring program. The Tutoring Center, Auburn TX has some excellent tutoring options for your children to start the new year on the right foot. Give them a call at (530) 878-5010 to learn about their tutoring options in Roseville.

Give Something Back

What better way to teach your children to appreciate everything they have and what they don’t than by giving something back? Some people don’t have the means to enjoy the holidays the same way many of us do, but we can help make that better. Sign your family up for a charity, join a soup kitchen, visit the elderly, or stop by a children’s hospital. Anything you can do to brighten someone’s day will be great. You can ask your children if they’re willing to donate some of the toys and clothes they no longer use to less fortunate children. These small acts of kindness help build up children’s character, increase empathy, and teach them to appreciate what they have.

Everyone in the Kitchen

The whole process of buying groceries and cooking up a meal can be very educational. You can even eat the results of your hard work! Have your children join you in the supermarket so that they can practice their math and budgeting skills. Afterwards, they can prepare their own meal or maybe make some cookies to give out as holiday gifts. Following a recipe can improve literacy and math skills, and by decorating cookies they will also be working on their fine motor skills. There are plenty of things to learn when food is involved. Last but not least, spending time together in the kitchen is an excellent way to enjoy each other’s company.

Gift Wrapping

Ask your children if they would like to be your helpers in your mission to wrap all the Christmas gifts. Gift wrapping can help them practice their math skills by calculating how much wrapping paper they will need to wrap each present. Want to get creative? Have them design their own exclusive Christmas wrapping paper.
