10 things to do on a day off

Are you home during the kids' school break and you’re not sure what to do to fill all this wonderful free time? Here are some ideas for fun activities for the whole family!

Plan a theme day

Kids love to do role play and a theme day allows you to turn any activity into an opportunity for fun!

Ideas for theme days for children:

Become a star for a day

Are your kids into music or have a talent for drama? Why not encourage these passions and organize a little play inspired by their favorite book or film a video clip of their favorite song? It doesn’t take much to get started: fun costumes made from your clothes, a video camera to capture everything and lots of fun!

The apprentice cook

Does your child always hang around you when you’re cooking and demonstrates a strong interest in the ingredients and the preparation of your dishes? Make them the chef of the day and plan a simple menu that is easy to make for their little hands and age appropriate.

Easy recipe ideas for children and parents

Make your own play dough!

The play dough you bought your kids has dried up and is no longer usable? Why not make a project out of it and make your own play dough with your kids’ help? They can then play with the dough they have just created!

Play dough recipes:

Make your own soap!

Have you ever made your own soap? It’s super easy and really fun for kids: ask them to grate odorless white soap bars, add a little food coloring of your choice and a little water until the mixture turns into a workable paste. Use cookie cutters or silicone molds for unique and original soap shapes! If you want a really special result, combine colors or add a few drops of essential oil to give your soap a pleasant smell.
