Holiday Entertainment

As teachers we might jump for joy at the words 'holiday' and 'vacation'. But what about parents? Some may not care (after all, you have looked after them for months), but wouldn't it be nice to help them out? This collection provides you with an abundance of activities you can pass on to parents. They will be forever grateful and your pupils might just keep learning over the break too!

    Fun-Damentals is a school holiday program that not only offers affordable childcare, but does so in an environment designed to improve fundamental movement skills in young children. It is run by a team of highly qualified educators that ooze enthusiasm. It is location specific, but their program may inspire you to create one of your own in your own school - benefit your pupils, parents, and maybe even earn a little summer cash for yourself!

    These activities will entice young people to spend some time outdoors during the holidays. They can be made and played by the whole family and allow plenty of room for creativity.

    Another great idea to pass on to parents. Students can photograph or bring in their masterpieces to show you. It's a wonderful activity for the whole family and can cater for children of all ages making it great for parents who have multiple children, and they will get a bit of exercise!

    An easy and fun craft project. It's cheap, easy and can provide hours of entertainment - your parents will be grateful for this suggestion!
  • Amy Watson says:
    A truly wonderful book. It is more than just an extensive list of games, but a thorough collection of activities that will not only keep kids busy, but promote creative thinking, teamwork and, most importantly, get them away from the computer screen! Buy a copy to keep in the classroom, allowing children to photocopy the activities they might like to try over the holidays. Why not have them photograph their ventures and turn it into a project!

    This article initially looks at how time spent during school holidays has changed. As teachers, we are well equipped with a magic bag of tricks to keep children occupied, but this may not be the case for parents. The end of the article provides a superb list of games and activities to keep children busy. Choose to pass this on to parents, or simply suggest the games to your students yourself.
