5 Best Things to do with Kids over Holiday Breaks

Remember the phrase in the Christmas song, "And mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again." Well, while it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around town, that also means the kids will be out for holiday breaks both next week and in December. We've rounded up our favorite things for kids to do over the holiday breaks.

Mind Masters Escape Room

Mind Masters in Clermont has escape rooms and fun pop-ups throughout the year. Over Thanksgiving break, they'll host a Student Puzzle workshop for ages 10-14. This includes the escape room experience, a tour of the facility and a puzzle design workshop. Cost is $50 per student. Visit their Facebook page for more holiday break workshops and fun through December. 

Plaster Cottage

Whether you visit here for the day or sign up for one of their special events, Plaster Cottage is one of the best hidden gems in Clermont. Make a plate for Santa's cookies, or paint an ornament, or just choose your favorite piece to paint. They update their Facebook page often with special events. And if you are done with the kids, be sure to check out one of their Ladies nights events. 


If it's a bit chilly outside for you to take the kids to the park to let off steam, head to Clermont Bowling Alley instead. Whenever the kids are out of school, it's reduced rates for the kiddos. 

Adrenaline Rush

In Leesburg, Adrenaline Rush is a family entertainment center with an indoor go-kart track, arcade, laser tag and more. 

Sky Zone

Sky Zone in Clermont has Thanksgiving SkyCamp for kids age 6-15 for the whole week of Thanksgiving. Kids get to jump, watch movies, play games and mroe activities. The cost for camp from 9am-3pm is $132. Of course, you can just pop in for a day of open jump. Keep on eye on their Facebook page for specials through December.
