Three Simple Ideas ...

Some Fun Things to Do on Winter Break

As February break approaches, parents and their kids are planning trips and activities to keep busy!  Here are a few ideas to consider even if you're cooped up inside due to colder temperatures:


Have a "Paint" Party with Your Friends
Grab fabric paint pens or markers in a rainbow of colors, t-shirts, boxers, pillowcases, sweatshirts, sneakers or your favorite clothing and give them your own personal artistic touch!

Hand Write Notes to Friends and Family
With texting and emails being the norm, handwritten letters are a treasure that aren't often received these days.  Drop a note to a few special people and you'll be sure to make their day!


Try a New Hobby
Use your week off to find something interesting and new to try. Here are some ideas to get you started: write a story, cook a new recipe, rollerskate, make a Web site, go swimming, lift weights or make a home movie.  What will you try?
