In many schools, study days are still being used. On these days, the masters and teachers are preparing the curriculum or other things. The children are therefore free on a study day. In general, study days are passed on at the start of the school year, put it in your agenda to prevent surprises. Do you not know what you can do with your child during a study day? Then we have a few ideas!
Make an extensive breakfast or take a nice day in the kitchen together to bake tasty things! These are often the moments that you can enjoy each other together without having to hurry. An advantage? At the end of the day you also have something nice to eat together at, for example, the tea!
Go to a museum or amusement park
Now that the museums and amusement parks are open again, it might be a nice idea to go to a museum or amusement park together. A museum is of course a quieter option than an amusement park and in the museum your child also learns something. But on a weekday to an amusement park with mom or dad is of course the dream of every child. Nice advantage of going to an amusement park during the week: you prevent lengthy rows. Something can be said for both.
Maybe not such a very crazy idea since children nowadays constantly have to be "on": go niksen together. Together with your child you can sleep in, watch a movie on the couch or just have to draw or tinker in the house. Other options for your "relaxation day" are (read) reading or maybe a nice board game.
Go to the library
Reading is very good for your child's development. So go to the library together during a study day and choose a few nice books. You can then read a book together at home or you can read your child once. In both cases you can relax and read together. Do you really want to make it colorful? Then you can ask if your child wants to read for you! That will be laughing together.
The advantage of a study day is that places that are normally very busy during the weekend are a lot quieter during the week. Think of the city, museums, amusement parks or other places where many people go with their child on weekends. It is therefore not a very crazy idea to go into the city together during a study day. Another advantage: in the now quiet cities you will lose sight of your child less than when it is so busy!
Walking in nature
Taking a walk in nature can do a lot of good for you and your child. It helps to lower stress hormones in the body and you can get a breath of fresh air together. Your child can also lose some energy by playing nice wildlife outside. When you sit on the couch in the evening, it is also a lot quieter in the house;).
