Winter Break Activities for kids in Tri-Cities

by Melody on December 7, 2015

Winter Break Activities for kids in Tri-Cities

No, these poor sad children do not hate their breakfast.  They are worried for their Mom’s sanity with winter break on the horizon.

Take a glance at your calendar.  Do you feel it?  The clock is ticking down.  Your kids will be home.  All day.  And it’s freezing outside.  How do we maintain our sanity?  What do these small people do all day?  Why do they wrestle and yell and act like they have nothing to do and that we are torturing them by making them be in the same room as their siblings?

I’ve put together a list of all the indoor activities, camps, workshops and fun events for kids of all ages in the Tri-Cities.  We shall plan.  We shall have things on the calendar that prevent boredom.  Although I left out the suggestions of friends who said send them to Grandma’s house for a week or put them in the closet.  Not that these aren’t valid suggestions.

From one cooped up parent to another.  Let’s save winter break!

Libraries and Story Time

  • Mid-Columbia Libraries – All the different branches in our area have tons of different story time hours, craft time, movies and other activities for kids of all ages.  Be sure to check out their monthly calendar.  Be sure to check out their fun Star Wars-themed reading challenge!  Check your local branch for kick-off dates and times and get a picture with Darth Vader.
  • Richland LibraryGreat story time, puppet shows and other activities, Therapy Dogs and other fun programs.

Polymer-Science

Local Kids Camps and Workshops

  • YMCA Tri-Cities Winter Break Camp – Runs from December 21st – 31st from 6:30 AM to 6 PM for kids age 5 – 12.  Games, activities, crafts, snacks and lunch is provided.  Registration is for both Y members and non-members, spots are first come, first serve.
  • The Reach Tri-Cities Family Fun Workshop – Learn about polymer science while making garlands out of popcorn, cranberries and more.  December 12th from 12 PM – 2 PM.  RSVP required as space and supplies are limited.

Pacific Northwest Christmas Family Fun Guide

Pin this to your Christmas Pinterest board!

I know.  It’s early November.  But I swear, you will blink and it will be January 1st and we’ll be staring dazed at a list of resolutions and a pile of wrapping paper.  My philosophy on the holidays is to schedule, people!  While this may seem counter intuitive to the whole “relax and kick back and enjoy the holidays with your family” type vibe, I find if I don’t add a few events, kid-friendly festivities, craft ideas and even where we will get our tree, things don’t get done.

This year I have teamed up with Angela of Frugal Living NW and Jen and Sia of Thrifty NW Mom to bring you a round-up of Christmas events and festivals, craft shows and bazaars and Christmas Tree Farms around the Pacific Northwest.

Get your calendars out now friends!  Here’s what we will be bringing you:

  • This Beautiful Frugal Life – Christmas events and tree farms around Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon
  • Thrifty NW Mom – Christmas events and tree farms around Western Washington (from Whatcom County to Centralia/Chehalis area)
  • Frugal Living NW – Christmas events and tree farms around Western Oregon and Southwest Washington

Holiday Bazaars and Christmas Craft Shows

ChristmasSlider1
Tri-Cities, WA

NOV. 6-8 – Custer’s Annual Arts & Crafts Show at the TRAC in Pasco Times: Friday 10am – 8pm, Saturday 10am – 6pm, Sunday 10am – 4pm – Admission: Adults $6.00 – Good all Weekend/Kids 12 and Under Free

Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA is hosting Christmas Trees on the Farm on 2 different weekends: December 4th and 5th and December 11th and 12th from 10 AM – 7 PM.  I also noticed on their Facebook page that they will be open midweek!  Tuesday through Thursday December 1st – 3rd and December 8th – 10th from 4 – 7 PM.

The folks at Bill’s pick trees from a local farm a few days before Thanksgiving, so you can bring your family out to pick out your tree.  There will be hot chocolate, cider, caroling, handmade wreaths and garlands, a bonfire, caroling hayride for a donation to a local food bank and their amazing homemade vanilla sugar donuts.  If you haven’t tried their donuts yet, I’m telling you now you won’t be able to resist.  You’ve been warned.

This year, they also have their beautiful Barn Store up and running where you can buy ornaments, decor and other gift ideas.

Our family has been to Bill’s more times than I can count and I swear I will never go anywhere else.  They are so family-friendly and my kids just love it.  We went last year to pick out our tree and had a wonderful time, despite the frigid weather.  We found a really reasonably priced tree and Bill himself even carried it to our truck for us.

For more information and directions, check out Bill’s Berry Farm website.
