FUN AND EASY TIPS TO KEEP KIDS LEARNING

DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON 


With the holiday season just around the corner, children are looking forward to family celebrations, sleigh rides, and sipping hot cocoa by the fire. While the break from school is well-deserved, it’s important to keep children learning and engaged during this time.

Here’s how you can make the holiday season both educational and memorable:


1. Baking can create delicious memories From pumpkin pies to sugar cookies, measuring is a great way to practice fractions, while mixing helps children learn about the chemistry of baking.

2. Incorporate meteorology fun by having your child research and collect data of snowfall totals from the past 10 years.

3. Have your child help create the holiday menu by finding recipes in a cookbook. They can practice their math skills comparing prices of different brands of ingredients at the grocery store.

4. Make the most of holiday travel by turning car rides into an opportunity to practice letters and numbers. You can look for license plates from different states or count the number of blue, silver or black cars.

5. Read for fun. Pick out some holiday-themed books and mix-up your nightly reading routine by reading by the fireplace or building your own cozy reading fort with blankets and pillows.

6. Wrapping presents is a great way to incorporate math and measuring skills. Ask your children to measure the gifts with a tape measure or ruler to see how much wrapping paper is needed.

7. Create a family tree. Many families spend the holiday season with extended family. It’s a great opportunity to encourage your children to take an interest in learning more about their heritage by interviewing grandparents and listening to family stories.
