There is a set of ways to entertain the little fidget to whom digging with a shovel in a snowdrift and a molding of snowmen bored for a long time. And each of them, as if by magic, can turn usual winter day into the real holiday.

New Year trees

New Year trees with an ulterior motive keep a palm in the list of winter entertainments for children. When how not in New year, your kid will be able to see own eyes Father Frost and the Snow Maiden? Of course, such chance cannot be missed, but before going to buy the ticket, consider some features of this holiday. Do not forget to specify its estimated duration. 2 - 3 - to summer children more than 20 - 30 minutes are difficult to keep attention. Also you should not send them to New Year New Year shows which are held without participation of parents. Morning performance in children`s club to which invite children accompanied by adults will be the best option for them. And here children are more senior quite can go to a holiday independently. It passes usually according to rather standard program. At first in the foyer about a fir-tree Father Frost with the Snow Maiden wish all children a Happy New Year and hold various games, competitions and dances, then children see a New Year`s performance and receive gifts. Do not limit preparation for a New Year tree to purchase of the ticket - buy or sew to the kid a beautiful carnival costume, learn with it a rhyme which he will be able to tell Father Frost, or study several pas of simple dance. And how to know, maybe, your child will win the first prize for the performance.

Children`s club (entertainment center)

the Main place of any children`s club - the spacious game hall with a soft floor into which the hill, various “lazalka“ with transitions, an inflatable trampoline, etc. organically fits. The entrance is, as a rule, forbidden adults in game space - you can watch how your kid frolics, from - for special a protection or a glass wall and at the same time to drink coffee in cafe. Any child will not be left indifferent by trampolines and the dry pool filled with balls, labyrinths and soft designers. Do not forget that for hygiene children have to be in the game hall in socks or in replaceable footwear. Clowns and conjurers will allow to miss to nobody, and in certain hours in entertainment centers there take place displays of animated films on the big screen and children`s New Year`s performances. Also the child can sing the favourite song by means of a karaoke.

A when he will be tired and properly will get hungry, will be able to be supported in children`s cafe with the special menu. Small brochettes, chicken wings, several types of pizza, a canape and tartlet, various desserts undoubtedly will be pleasant to your kid.

we Go to a zoo

Approximately since 1,5 - 2 can begin to take out the child to a zoo that he alive saw those numerous animals with whom he is already familiar on drawings and fairy tales. At visit of a zoo it is important not to overload the child with impressions as the main goal of visit is not survey as it is possible bigger number of cages and open-air cages for a unit of time. Your task - to show to the kid of animals and to tell about them so that he not just enthusiastically looked at them and right there forgot about new znakomets. Therefore before a trip to a zoo prepare the kid and tell it what animals he will see there. For the smallest children there will be enough visit of a so-called “children`s“ zoo where animals well familiar to them are presented: goat, goose, wolf, fox, bear etc. It will be interesting to more senior children to see animals, exotic for our latitudes: giraffe, elephant, rhinoceros, zebra, crocodile. Surely pay attention of the child to distinctive features of each representative of fauna. It is possible to ask it to remember in what poems or fairy tales the seen animals occur.

Surely tell

to the kid about how it is dangerous to try to get into a cage or into the open-air cage to animals and also why it is impossible to feed inhabitants of a zoo with the food brought with itself.

in a zoo needs to be prepared by

For a campaign carefully. Put on more warmly, alternate visit of the closed and open open-air cages, then in frosty winter day you will not manage to freeze. For the least children take replaceable diapers, wet towel wipes, and also a carriage that it was not necessary to carry the tired kid on hands. Take care and about food for the child - in the territory of a zoo there is always a cafe where you will be able conveniently to settle down and where to you will help to warm food in the microwave oven. Do not forget also that visit to a zoo has to fit into a children`s day regimen therefore it is better to plan it for morning hours or for a while after a day dream organically.

If in your city does not have

a zoo, then for certain there will be at least a zoocorner in the House of children`s creativity or in park. Anyway do not miss an opportunity to closer acquaint the child with the presents, but not drawn representatives of fauna.

To circus with the child

For the first time it is better for p to go to circus when the child already visited a zoo and saw “alive“ such animals as bears, tigers, elephants. In that case much less probability that he will be frightened of a species of big animals in a circus ring. The noisy and brightly painted clowns can also make on the kid unpleasant impression therefore in advance tell it about the one whom and that he will be able to see in circus, consider on pictures of those animals who will participate in circus numbers, as an example it is possible to show to the child representation video. With 2 - 3 - summer children it is better to go to circus in the morning, at the same time it is possible to be limited to viewing of one office as such kids hardly perceive large volumes of visual information and are easily overexcited. In an interval do not allow the child to miss in long turn in cafe, take to have a bite something with yourself better. And in free time it is possible to photograph it with circus animals or to participate together with it in various cheerful contests and games which circus animators stage.


Acquaintance of the child to the world of theater can already be begun with

in 2 - 3 - summer age with visit to small drama school in which there take place the representations calculated on the least audience. Their main difference - the small duration as it is difficult for small child to concentrate long on a plot. Therefore the performance of well familiar short fairy tales is used: such as “Kolobok“, “Teremok“, “Doctor Aybolit“, etc. It is easy for kid to monitor action as he already well knows all heroes therefore it is possible not to doubt that such visit of theater will give it great pleasure. For children of 4 - 6 years duration of a performance can reach 45 minutes. And you have a wide choice of a type of theatrical action. It can be a shadow play, puppet theater, theater of animals, musical and drama theater.


Before a visit of theater to the child about rules of conduct in institutions such, about what during a performance cannot be talked, rustled, eaten candy and to distract neighbors in a row. As well as in a case with circus, it is better to go to theater in the morning, then by the evening the brightest impressions of day will cease and it will be easier for kid to fall asleep. the Museum

with visit of temples of art in which the best models of painting and a sculpture are collected.

specify working hours of the museum In advance, learn when in it the day off (usually it is one of weekdays), visit the museum without child to estimate an exact route of survey. Many museums have websites on the Internet where you will be able to find all necessary information. With the child it is better to go to the museum in the morning when there still there are not enough visitors. Before visit take with yourself replaceable footwear in which you will be able to change the kid that he had not to take a steam bath in the warm room in winter boots. During survey do stops, especially with the small child more often. And after return home surely once again discuss what was seen - it will help the kid to order information, new to it, mentally.
