So this summer was a rough one for me and the kids I nanny for. I had three kids 3, 5, and 8. The 8 year old and I butted heads a lot and it made for a rough summer. I think the reason that it was getting that bad was because she was bored. I didn't plan much because it was the first month or so of being a nanny and it was hard for me to concentrate on what I had to do when it was a house setting. Christmas break is coming up soon and I don't want what happened this summer happen when they're home from Christmas break. Anyone have any ideas of what to do with her so she's not bored, some activities or something. I figured one day we could have a cookie baking and decorating morning but what are some other things?
