With the holidays coming up, most kids (and their parents) will be wondering what to do now that the school bells won’t be ringing for a while. If you don’t have the budget for them to go out every day, don’t you stress! There are so many activities they can do at home to keep them busy and happy.

Spark creativity

Most kids don’t mind getting their hands dirty. And if you give them some water-based paint, a paintbrush, large sheets of paper and tell them to be as creative as they want, they will have the time of their lives. And if they want to be EXTRA, they could even use their hands and feet to paint their desired piece – there aren’t any rules! Just make sure to place old newspaper and plastic on the floor where they’ll work so that they do not leave a long-lasting paint memory on your floor.

Go camping

Warning: you won’t see them for hours. Camping indoors is way more fun for kids anyway – there won’t be any nasty mosquitos troubling them and they can’t complain that it’s “too cold” outside. Build a fort with them by gathering some blankets and rearranging the furniture in the lounge, which they can use as their “cave” for the entire holiday. Add some pillows to the mix, allow them to have some snacks on hand and give them your phone or tablet to watch their favourite cartoons. Provide them with a torch for the ultimate camping experience!  

Find a part-time job

If you have teenagers, help them to find a job at a local flea market or even as a dog sitter for a neighbour who is going away. It’s a great way for them to become more independent as they earn their own money. Oh, you’d like to go to the cinema with friends this weekend? The bill will definitely not come out of mum or dad’s pocket.

Giving back

Teaching kids to give back to the community is another way for them to understand the importance of giving to those less fortunate and spending time with them. There is an old saying that says ‘money is of least importance when you show you care’. Let them choose an organisation with a cause close to their heart, from walking dogs at animal shelters to playing games with children at orphanages – there are many NGOs in your area that seek volunteers.

 

Having crazy kids at home during the holidays means that the valuables in your house are at a higher risk of getting broken! Get affordable home insurance for peace of mind, so you can happily live your way, knowing that no matter what happens, your items are covered for. Apply for an online insurance quote today and see how much money you can save.
