Though we rarely see below freezing temperatures or snow in Florida, celebrating the winter holidays can still be just as exciting as up north for you and your children. Below are three sustainable activities you can do with your children this holiday season.
- Have a Pajama Day
Winter break is meant to help young minds relax and rejuvenate after a term of learning at the best VPK in Jacksonville, FL. By having a day where the whole family gets to stay in their PJs, you can help promote relaxation and spending time together. Do crafts, make blanket forts, or get everyone involved in cooking breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
- Spend a Day at a Local Farm
Visiting a farm is a great way to keep kids active while they are having fun. Whether you want to go fruit picking or teach them about the different animals that live on the farm, your child will be able to be fully engaged in learning about new things. If possible, take a tour of the farm to teach them the connection between food and where it comes from.
- Have an Outdoor Adventure
Kids love to be outdoors, and we are fortunate to have consistently lovely weather in our state. Plan an outdoor adventure for your children, such as a scavenger hunt or fort building competition to help them be engaged and active. Do not forget to bring plenty of water and snacks!
