Recently I had a chat with a friend of mine and her 4 sons. With the current holidays I asked the boys a question, “What would the perfect holiday look like to you?”
Their responses didn’t surprise me as I knew they all loved the outdoors, however what did surprise me was that not one of the boys mentioned technology in any of their answers, and many of these activities were at no cost.
Their answers might give you some ideas on how to occupy your children during the next few weeks of the holidays.
