Winter break is all about spending time with family, relaxing, celebrating, and overall having a lot of fun. However, taking a long break from school and extracurricular activities provides the opportunity for learning loss. To prevent your child from dealing with learning loss, we have compiled a short list of learning activities they can enjoy. Learn more about this topic by reading this article by Stretch-n-Grow in Winston/Salem, NC.

Making Handmade Holiday Gifts

Handmade gifts carry a love of meaning. Making handmade gifts is an activity you can do as a family. Gather different craft supplies such as paper, glitter, markers, scissors, glue, and pipe cleaners. You can also make eatable gifts using candy canes, chocolate, crackers, marshmallows, and more. This is an enjoyable activity that allows your child to let their imagination run free.

Painting a Mural

If your child is interested in art and art activities, have them paint a mural. This can be done on a wall of your choosing at home or a big canvas. Gather supplies such as paint, a pencil, an eraser, and photos or illustrations as reference. Trace the design on the wall or canvas with a pencil and get painting!

Astronomy Activities

Staring up at the sky can be mesmerizing. To teach your child about space, ask them some of these questions: Which constellations can you identify? Where is the brightest star? Which names of the week are named after objects in the sky? There are many online resources and apps that can help you and your child learn more about the night sky. So, take some time and start stargazing!
