If this had been your usual year, you would already have booked a family vacation during school holidays for Christmas and New Year. Unfortunately, the pandemic has compelled us to cancel/postpone travel plans for safety reasons. But, fret not. We have lined up some cool activities to keep your kids entertained during the school break and bring some festive cheer in their life.
- DIY Christmas Décor
The internet is loaded with DIY ideas for X-mas décor. Why not indulge your kids in some age-appropriate arty-crafty fun instead of buying readymade trinkets from the market? Then, you can set up your X-mas tree and adorn the whole house with homemade décor items!
- Online Activity Camps
From music & dance and STEM & robotics to Christmas parties and talent contests, several online activity camps and events are taking place during the winter school break. You can enrol your kids in these workshops to keep them engaged for a few hours a day. Check out Kidwise recommendations on holiday-special hobby classes and activities/events for your children.

- Visit the Malls, Activity Centres and Toy Shops
If you are comfortable taking your kid outdoors in the city, take them to visit the malls and activity centres. Activity centres such as Hands On and SkyJumper Trampoline Park have opened the doors to their patrons. All malls and shops are decked up in Christmas glory and have even arranged special activities for children. For instance, Hamleys India has lined up evening Christmas parade in its outlets. Wouldn’t your kids love to meet and greet Santa and make their wishes come true?
Of course, you need to take all COVID-19 safety precautions before stepping out of your home and also follow the safety rules laid down at public places.
