While children count down the days to the holidays and a break from school, homework, and extra-curricular activities, parents groan and wonder how they will keep them occupied. While outings are always fun and it's a good idea to get out of the house once in a while, much time is going to be spent at home, and probably indoors if the weather not child-friendly. Television and computer games are a firm favorite, but their appeal dims after a few days.
This is the perfect time to bring out some fun activities that will keep them busy, have a soothing effect on their mood, and even allow parents to spend quality time with their children. Our wide selection of holiday coloring pages is an absolute must for that moment when you hear the dreaded words, “Mom, I’m bored!”
It is a good idea to be prepared. Make use of our holiday coloring pages and holiday coloring sheets and have them on hand before you hear the complaints of having nothing to do. Make sure you have a good stock of stationary on hand, and a wide assortment of pencils, crayons, pastels, and fiber-tip pens.
Older children will love the holiday craft ideas. However, if you have younger children, they will really appreciate the time you spend helping them with these activities. Once again, plan beforehand and have the required materials packed in a drawer somewhere. You will be so glad you did, and your children will love you for it.
