#12 - Transform a box into a cottage
Take a large box and help the kid to decorate it as a winter cottage. Help them cutout windows and a door. Encourage them to be creative and use various materials, such as cotton balls for snow and glitter for a snow-covered roof. They’ll have a blast creating a cozy winter cottage they can proudly show off to family and friends.
#13 - Explore with your senses
#14 - Make seasonal art and craft
#15 - Watch a fireplace
A nice fireplace playing on your TV will change the atmosphere of your home into a cozy holiday spirit.
Don’t Forget: It's ok to rest!
You don't need to fill every second of your child's holidays with activities. Allowing them to have some free time to rest, relax, and explore on their own will help them manage their emotions better and feel refreshed and ready for school come January.
