Whether your kids are on a short winter break or long summer vacation, it’s likely that they are bored. You need to keep this boredom away, and give them a chance to enjoy. It’s better if you try the following activities to keep them entertained. 

Make Artwork with Paper Towel or Toilet Paper Rolls

You can let your kids make artwork with paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls. You need to cut them up in small sections. Give your kids these rolls, glue sticks, and some other craft items, such as glitter, markers and watercolors and let them decorate away! You can even put scraps of shiny craft paper inside, place wax paper over both ends and secure with rubber bands, making an amazing homemade kaleidoscope. Once the kaleidoscope is completed, simply have them hold one end against their eye, while facing the other ends towards a light in the room, and turn!

Make Plastic Cup Maracas

Take plastic cups and cut a slit in the bottom just long enough to insert a popsicle stick. Put tape around the popsicle stick on the outside and inside the cup. Add uncooked rice or uncooked pasta noodles. Cover top of cup with plastic wrap and put tape around where to secure the wrap around the cup. Now shake away!

Make a Puzzle

Use popsicle sticks to make a puzzle can be an excellent idea. In fact, you should let them make the puzzle themselves. You just need to take a picture and glue it to a popsicle stick. Let it dry for a few minutes, and cut between the popsicle stick. Within a few minutes, you will have a fun and simple puzzle for your kids. 

And after all this fun, if you things are all messy, just call a house cleaning service like The Maids of Rhode Island, in Coventry, to assist you.
