What to do with the child on a winter vacation

The long-awaited winter holidays, filled with pleasant and joyful anticipation of troubles will pass by in an instant, and will be many more days on which children are waiting for entertainment, games and merriment!

The task of parents - to fill these days very different, but certainly interesting and useful for small fidgets tasks: active and passive, street and home, static and interactive. We'll give you a few helpful tips and offer options for hanging out, so that all were interesting and fun.


The main rule of the vacation is more fresh air and active games on the street. You can roll snowballs for a while, compete, who has more snowballs, build castles and snowballs, throw snowballs at the target or tinker snowmen on the contrary - this is when stick-legs are inserted in the upper snowball (it's especially funny to put old boots on them or skates), and the bottom piece is put "upside down" face. If there is no snow - walk in the woods, arrange competitions for running around with obstacles around the trees, hang up feeding troughs for birds and squirrels, return home ruddy, slightly frozen and very tired. Warm up for warm tea and plaid pajamas for watching a family New Year's cartoon.

Small povaryata

A wonderful tradition is to make family dumplings and vareniki with the whole family! The process is long, but very exciting, and most importantly - you can connect even younger children to it! Do you remember the series "Masha and the Bear"? You can use ready-made minced meat, for example, from turkey, for dumplings, or frozen berries for the summer - for dumplings. The dough is prepared simply: a glass of water, an egg, salt and a pound of flour. The dough should be rolled very thinly, and then cut the dumplings with a glass, spread a teaspoon of filling and mold the pelmenko. Or maybe you still have such an archaic subject, like a metal pelmennitsa? But more fun, of course, by hand!

Cartoons, stories, games

It must be remembered that on New Year's holidays all TV channels offer a lot of children's cartoons, fairy tales and performances. But often the matter is overshadowed by the fact that you sit all day at the TV and wait for the start of your favorite cartoon, neither you nor the child would like. And if a child is late for a cartoon with a walk - upset. To avoid this, there is a wonderful way out - a children's tablet, which you can download not only your favorite cartoons or audiobooks, but also developing programs. Throughout the world, a huge team of professionals is developing educational and development applications that combine the very best - beautiful tales, wonderful illustrations, funny animations, exciting tasks, professional acting voice acting, etc., etc.
