Just because you're home for the holidays, it doesn't mean you have to spend the whole time watching television or playing video games (although, Kidzworld recommends setting aside plenty of time to do both those things). It's also important that you spend some time exercising, especially since you'll probably be eating a lot of junk food. Check out these ideas for staying in shape over the holidays.
You're never too old to build a snowman and it can be a fun way of keeping active over the holidays. Be creative and dress your snow creature up as your most-hated teacher, and then throw snowballs at it.
