So, the Christmas presents have been opened, Christmas dinner has been digested and the leftovers thrown out. It’s cold and hard to keep the kids out for long periods, so what to do? You’ll find some ideas below of things to do to keep the kiddies occupied and perhaps the whole family.
Out with the old and in with the new. Here’s a great project that can also teach your child to give and recycle. Take a box and encourage your children to pick out toys they can do without and agree to give away. With all the new gifts received during Christmas, they (and you) likely need more space. I like to turn on a particular song and see if they can work slow or fast, depending upon how slow of fast the music might be.

Jump Jam -http://www.jumpjam.us/ open 11am- 7pm starting Jan 1st , if you don’t know what this place is, I’ll explain you pay around 13 per adult (adult age starts at 7) and you are allowed to jump your little hearts contempt for 1 whole hr. They have everything from basketball to a course that your child can attempt as many times as they want. It does get crowed if I was you I would go and sign up for what they call a flight time do all your waivers online and plan ahead, with school being out I have waited up to 5 hrs to just be able to jump.
