Great Ways to Keep Kids Busy!

Busy days filled with family and travels are on the horizon as the holidays approach. It can be a stressful time for kids and parents with changes in routine, bedtimes, meals and even location. Coloring is a great stress reliever, even for the littlest holiday reveler. Follow this link to the free coloring pages on ColoringBook.com and stock up. Or check-out some holiday titles or just for fun titles to give kids at the beginning of a car trip. Challenge them to finish the book or a section of pages by the time you arrive at your destination. For older kids, give them page challenges: coloring only with colors that start with a letter in their name, coloring with only three colors, or whatever sounds fun! Make sure you have plenty of crayons, markers and pencils, and if you have to get a last minute gift, you will have plenty of home-made wrapping paper. Happy Holidays!

  1. We keep our kids busy with audiobooks. They're far more engaging than dvds and tv, and it gets them interested in tv. There's lots of great sites where you can download original stuff, instead of the same old public domain stories like Red Riding Hood. This is a good one where you can download original stuff for free. http://www.twirlygirlshop.com/stories-for-kids
