Ready or Not, Here They Come...Winter Break is Here!

Entertaining Kids During Holiday Break For the next two weeks, the kids are going to be home for holiday break from school. That is both exciting (mostly for them) and daunting (for parents)… what on Earth will we do with one another for two entire weeks? Fear not, fellow moms and dads. We are all in the same boat, and I’ll share with you a few of our favorite ways to spend winter days home for the holidays. Get Outdoors… Lakeside Park (when the ice is thick enough, and the light is green) or the Headwaters Park Ice Skating Rink downtown. It’s a great way to get some outdoor exercise together as a family, and it’s fun, too—don’t forget the hot cocoa to warm up with! Metea County Park, Buckner Farm Park, Fox Island or Vandolah Nature Preserve. It’s usually less crowded than weekends, and fun to explore nature together. Fort Wayne Museum of Art, exercise their brains at Science Central, or check out new books from the Allen County Public Library. Check websites for special events going on during break. If you like to bake, decorate holiday cookies or make a gingerbread house—and leave extra candy for snacking. Visit Fort Wayne!
