5 Ways to Entertain Your Kids When They're Off School but Your Home Business is OpenWritten by Megan Corwin
1. Put in a DVD/video. What is it about children that they can watch same movie over and over again? Take advantage of this fact.
2. Barter with parent of your child's friend. She can take them to a movie or watch them at her house for day. Just be sure to return favor on a weekend or day your home business is closed.
3. Check with your local YMCA or museums. Many of them offer special full or half day programs on school holidays.
4. Put them to work. Smaller children can certainly stuff envelopes. Older ones can possible handle data entry. Let them practice their alphabetizing skills with your orders. Either you will get clerical work done by your helpers or they will stay out of your hair so they won't have to help.
