5 Activities to do with your Kids during School Holidays.
1. Spring Cleaning
Let’s start the holiday by cleaning your house! Or you can start with your kids’ bedroom first. You’ll never know what you might find under bed! Sometimes, I found tupperwares with food leftovers from few months ago. 😅
Clean up with them, decorate together, let the whole family feel that this is their house and it’s their responsibility to maintain it clean and nice. And that is including Daddy. No excuse!😏
To make the activity more interesting, you might together take out and categorised items to:
- item that need to be thrown out (no more us),
- items that can be recycled, and
- items that still in good conditions (can be donated to people or place in needs).
Indirectly, tell them the importance to take a good care of their belongings, to help people in needs or all the whys they need to keep their places in neat. 😎 Last, spray with the fragrant they adore. Close your eyes and imagine the peacefulness! ☺️

Some feel super excited with camping activity, and some are don’t. But it is good idea to put in the list so that the kids are less attached with gadget and get close with mother nature. However, make sure you are ready with:
- first aid kit
- basic needs such as food, torch light, insects repellent, raincoats, tents
- sport shoes and sleeping bag
- empty bottles
- RULES – leave your gadgets behind!
and other items that you think you may need. But you’re going to camp, remember, don’t cramp EVERYTHING you think you need into the pack! I would say, Dad, it is your lead, and mom, just relax. 😂
