It's 7:01 a.m. on the first day of Christmas break and the first words out of your child's mouth are "I'm bored." Seriously kid?!



You've been looking forward to this day since school started just chill. Be happy you're not on the bus right now. Anyone else have this problem? Bored kids? Smh. But since kids need constant entertainment, I have been nice enough to come up with a few things for you to do with your kids... after you put them to work cleaning the house of course.

Take them to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or any movie
