Local Winter Break Activities to Bust Boredom

Posted on: December 21st, 2016by

 

Winter break begins for my boys this Friday afternoon. How about your kids?

 

As I sit here typing away trying to get all the holiday articles done for our readers, I am trying to think ahead to next week. How will I fill the days to keep my three boys busy and not driving me nuts? I imagine you all have the same concerns when it comes to your own kids. How do we prevent the “I’m bored”, “There’s nothing to do.”? How do we keep them from being glued to screens? You need to turn to Jersey Family Fun.

 

Truth be told, I’m a bit jealous of our readers right now. There’s so many things that families can do together over the winter break. But I broke my toe last weekend and I can’t drive for the next 6 weeks. So I’m not going anywhere. ;'( Yes, this blogging mom who loves to travel is going to be somewhat limited over the next few weeks. No worries for you though. We have lots of ways for you to bust the boredom in your kids and have some great experiences while they are home from school.

 

Take our winter break ideas!

 

Get out there and have fun!

 

Be sure to share the experiences you are have in the comments below or online with the hashtag #JerseyFun. We can’t wait to see how your family spends this week off with these local winter break activities.
