They’re not just for boys.. the girls would like these too!
During any vacation, children enjoy their time away from school, but home routines remain important. Always practice the violin every day. And vacation gives you more opportunity to practice even more often. One example for a young child: 10 minutes in the morning, 10 in the afternoon, and 10 in the evening. Be creative about when and where during the holiday break.
Vacation is also a great time “to waste time with your children.” A great time to enjoy your children. But you know eventually, they are going to tell you they are bored!
Renee of Great Peace Academy has a wonderful resource index for activities for boys!
Here are a few hands-on activities I selected from her page:
What child wouldn’t like to watch dissolving rocks only to find a little surprise inside.
Or build a boat from a large cardboard box? And then practice your violin while standing in your boat!
