What do the changing seasons have to do with engaging my child without gadgets?

Well, I am not just talking about the four seasons here, I am referring to the various special occasions that take place throughout the calendar year!

Just as your child learns about the need for a change of wardrobe according to the four seasons, you can also ENGAGE them with various activities focusing on different special occasions!

Birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Easter, Halloween are just some of the occasions that we can use as reasons to engage our children.

The activity can be in the form of planning for a party together, creating hand-made birthday cards, cooking or baking together, or even sewing a costume together.

My point is, don’t let any special occasion go by without fully ENGAGING your child! 

Whether or not there is an official celebration or party at home for the occasion, you can still encourage your child to do an activity together in relation to the occasion.

My family doesn’t celebrate Halloween where we come from, but together with my boys, we still did crafts together to put them up as decoration around the house!

I helped my boys with cutting out chains of ghosts, bats, and pumpkins, while they drew up monsters, skeletons, and haunted castles.


The craft-making went on for a few days and it was fun for all of us!

My boys didn’t go for any trick or treat, but they still had fun this Halloween!

You can do the same!

So move with the seasons and make use of every special occasion, to engage your child in an activity.

Even if it’s a coloring activity again, the novelty comes in coloring different pictures unique to the occasion, or even with a purpose of gifting it to a family member or a friend.

That makes the coloring activity even more meaningful for the child!

Christmas is my favorite time of the year.

Now your child will be spoilt for choice when deciding on which coloring page to start with this weekend!

But that’s a happy problem, isn’t it?

Psst… These Christmas Printables are hand-drawn by me too! I sure hope your child will enjoy coloring them as much as my children do!

Pro Tip: Put up your kids’ colored creations as part of the Christmas decoration at home! Cut out the Christmas characters, punch a hole and string them up to make a hanging chain decoration.

Other than engaging your kids in a coloring activity, you can also engage them in the process of planning for your family’s Christmas Party!

Planning for a party is a great opportunity to meaningfully engage your child in a fun and educational way.

You can teach them about budgeting, meal planning, and also get their suggestions for what gifts to give to your loved ones!

The more involved your children are, the greater the sense of responsibility they would feel.

Also, the occasion would be even more memorable because your kids have also put in lots of time and effort into the entire planning and organization process!

Here’s a free printable holiday planner to help you engage your child in the process of party planning!
