Holiday Activities For The Kids (And Your Sanity)

Holiday activities for the kids are almost as necessary for a successful holiday as stocking up on eff-loads of wine for yourself is. Because, well, we know it’s not easy waking up to their squeaky voices, adhering to their sweet but oh-so-selfish demands, and fake laughing at their neverending stream of terrible jokes. Shew, guys. Just writing this gives us the heebies.

Luckily for you, parents, the ENTERTAINER has come to the rescue (again)! Yup, we’ve put together a list of 2-for-1 holiday activities for the kids. So, sit back, relax, save money, and suip in peace.
