10 Fun Ways to Keep Kids Entertained Over the Holiday Break

Holiday breaks are a magical time, filled with laughter, warmth, and the joy of spending quality moments with your little ones. That said, knowing just how to keep your kids entertained during an extended break can sometimes feel like a challenge. At ANB Baby, we understand the importance of creating unforgettable memories with your family. That's why we've compiled a list of ten creative and enjoyable ways to keep your kids engaged throughout the holiday season. From the whimsical world of Tonies audio figurines to the practical joy of a stroller wagon, these ideas will not only entertain but also bring your family closer together.

1. Enjoy a Tonies Audio Adventure Together

Dive into a world of imagination with Tonies audio figurines. These delightful characters are not just toys; they are storytellers, bringing classic tales and original adventures to life. Gather the family around, pick your favorite Tonie, and let the enchanting tales unfold. We love the Tonies A Christmas Carol & Tales Audio Play Figurine, featuring timeless stories written by world-renowned writers such as Charles Dickens, Jules Verne, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and Hugh Lofting. You’ll stimulate young minds and create a shared love for storytelling.


2. Have an Indoor Camping Adventure

Set up a cozy indoor camping experience in your living room. Build a blanket fort, tell stories with a flashlight under the "stars," and enjoy some indoor s'mores. It's a playful way to bring the camping experience indoors during the colder winter nights.

3. Go on a Stroller Wagon Scavenger Hunt

Turn your stroller wagon into a mobile treasure chest. Create a scavenger hunt by hiding small surprises or treats in different compartments of the wagon. Watch the excitement unfold as your little ones embark on a journey to discover hidden treasures. They’ll have fun and stay entertained while enjoying the fresh winter air. We love the Bob Gear Renegade™ Wagon, the perfect sidekick for these types of adventures. Made to get up and go, it folds and unfolds with one hand and three simple steps! The spacious design fits three kids and all the little extras that make family outings more fun. Large XtraMile™ tires are ready for any terrain and Smooth Shox™ suspension keeps riders comfortable from road to trail and everywhere in between.


4. Have a Holiday Baking Extravaganza

Wondering how to keep your kid entertained while you cook? Include them in the process! Gather the family in the kitchen for a holiday baking extravaganza. From sugar cookies to gingerbread houses, let your little ones get creative with the decorations. The sweet aroma of freshly baked treats and the joy of working together will make this a cherished holiday activity.

5. Set Up a Tonies Storybook Marathon

Create a cozy reading nook in your living room with blankets and pillows, and embark on a storybook marathon. Let each family member choose their favorite Tonies audio figurine or explore new ones together. Immerse yourselves in the enchanting world of literature. This activity not only fosters a love for reading but also provides a quiet and intimate time for bonding.

As a special bonus through the end of December 2023, ANB Baby is including a free Tonies headset purchase of any Toniebox—because the magic of the holidays deserves to be enjoyed to the fullest!


6. Discover Nature with Stroller Wagon Explorations

Bundle up the family and take a stroll through nature with your trusty stroller wagon. Explore local parks or nature trails, collecting leaves, twigs, and stones along the way. Use these natural treasures for later crafting sessions or simply enjoy the beauty of the outdoors together. For extended excursions like these, we love the convenience of the BOB Gear Renegade Wagon Bundle. This package comes with two UPF 50+ canopies to keep your little ones cozy and covered – don’t let a little sun or rain ruin your fun!


7. Try DIY Snow Globe Crafting

Bring a winter wonderland indoors with a DIY snow globe crafting session. Gather materials such as small figurines, clear jars, water, and glitter. Let your kids create their own magical scenes within the jars, and then seal them tight. Shake the snow globes, and watch as the glitter swirls around, creating a mesmerizing winter scene. These homemade snow globes make for charming decorations or thoughtful gifts for friends and family.

Pack a winter picnic and head to your local park with the convenience of a stroller wagon picnic basket. Enjoy hot cocoa, sandwiches, and sweet treats while surrounded by the crisp winter air. We love the super spacious, easy-to-maneuver convenience of the Veer Cruiser for our outdoor dining adventures! It's a simple yet delightful way to make the most of the holiday break.
