Huntington Learning Center Offers Winter Break Learning

ORADELL, NJ - (Marketwired - Nov 25, 2013) - Your child's winter break is a good time for him or her to enjoy a vacation from the frenzied pace of the school year, but Huntington Learning Center says there are still plenty of opportunities for learning. "Holiday break is a great time for children to enjoy learning for learning's sake," says Eileen Huntington, co-founder of Huntington Learning Center. "Encourage your child's inner explorer. Play games that are entertaining and educational. Get creative." Huntington suggests several winter break learning activities:

Read, read, read. Hit the library and stock up on reading material -- and help your child find books on topics in which he or she is interested. Remember: let your child read what he or she wants to during break, even if he or she chooses magazines or comic books. Try choosing a book together that you can read aloud as a family each evening. If you go with a book-turned-film, such as The Lightning Thief or The Spiderwick Chronicles, plan a movie night once you've all finished the book.

Go geocaching on a nice day. If your child gets a kick out of scavenger hunts, he or she may love geocaching, which is essentially treasure hunting with a GPS-enabled device. All you need is a smartphone with GPS and a membership to a site such as or You can search by zip code and difficulty level to get coordinates to a geocache in your area. Geocachers hide a waterproof container with trinkets and a log book.

Learn a new game. What better time than winter break to learn a new game? Games such as chess (check out and bridge are known for their brain-boosting abilities. Word and number puzzles also are excellent learning games -- especially when one has time to pass. Try Scrabble (or Words with Friends on a smartphone), Sudoku number puzzles and tangram shape puzzles.

Get crafty. Get out the craft supplies and have your child be inventive. Make gift tags or holiday thank-you cards. Turn a family story into an illustrated, handmade book. Create a family collage with pictures and mementos to display during the holidays. For more challenging projects, have your children make gifts for extended relatives. Peruse or for inspiration.

Winter break is a great time for students to recharge the batteries, but it also offers students something they do not have a lot of when school is in session: free time to explore their interests. "Encourage your student to expand his or her mind and learn something new," says Huntington. "Winter break is the perfect time to foster those curiosities."
