Activities for Helping Children Deal with Divorce

Divorce can be a difficult and emotional transition for newly divorced parents. Family time is something that is always cherished by all family members and now the dynamic has changed. There will be times where everyone feels the loss, especially the children. Guilt and sadness are emotions that are common when one parent is missing. This is normal and can be turned into something positive. Being close to the D.C. area, there are always tons of opportunities for kids, varying from museums, to craft shows, restaurants, and amazing live performances. Read on to find out our favorite activities for helping children deal with divorce.

The Washington Post weekend section is always packed full of activities ranging for children of all ages. One of my many favorite locations and events is the Glen Echo Park Imagination Stage. They offer fun and child-friendly productions, as well as a merry-go-round and playground. It’s the perfect place to bring a blanket and picnic. There is also a fantastic website called kidupandgo.com which offers the most local and current events, activities, and much more. Stores like Michael’s and Home Depot often offer a craft hour during weekends that are both inexpensive and fun for all ages.

While this new transition at times feels like you need to have an activity planned during your special time with your children, sometimes just having some downtime at home with a deck of cards or baking cookies is what everyone needs.
