8x Christmas break activities for kids

The dark winter days have arrived, Christmas lights are illuminating the city, and the holidays are fast approaching. Despite the cold, it's time to go out and have a good time. Here's some inspiration for the whole family!

Show off your ice skating skills 

Looking for a great winter activity? Then ice skating it is! Sadly, there won't be an ice rink on Market Square, but there's always IJsportcentrum Eindhoven. Race other kids on the 400-meter track or show your figure skating skills on one of the ice rinks. 

Grab a hot cacao @different places

Need something to warm you up between activities? Let's grab a hot chocolate. It's not only delicious, but it's also a moment of zen for the parents. Drop by at Meneer de Boer or Sissy-Boy, or check out our complete list of hot chocolate spots. 

Visit the Christmas Winter Circus @Parktheater

The Christmas Winter Circus has been a top activity for kids (and the rest of the family, of course) for quite some time. With funny clowns, breathtaking acts, hair-raising stunts, and more, this year, they're celebrating their almost 50th edition at Parktheater! Get your tickets while they're hot!

Philips Museum

Theater show:  @Natlab

Are you looking for an activity for preschoolers? Look no further! On January 9, attend a playful theater show called 'When it snows' at the Natlab. About dreams, travel, and snow!

Exciting scavenger hunt @Philips Museum

At the Philips Museum, children can go on a scavenger hunt almost every day. Using UV lights and a treasure map, they search for clues to find the hidden treasure. Once found, a pleasant surprise awaits them.

De Ontdekfabriek

Go on an adventure @De Ontdekfabriek

Another fun activity: going on creative adventures! Discover, play and experience. At De Ontdekfabriek at Strijp-S children can go wild. A bonus: they open their doors more often during school breaks! 

Jumping & bouncing @Jump XL

An activity guaranteed to get the kids going: trampoline jumping. Skits, somersaults, jumping, it's all possible six days a week at Jump XL. 

Gaming, gaming, and more gaming! @Gamestate

Attention teenagers! Gamestate is a gaming Valhalla. They've got a wide selection of arcades: from Mario Kart to pinball. So, upgrade your playing card and game on!
