The coronavirus lockdown has almost made everything come to a standstill. While we are all staying safe indoors at our homes, that doesn't mean we can't find fun and interesting ways to keep everyone entertained. Defocus the negative part and look forward to happy things where you will find ample reasons to be creative and constructive. Now that you have time to spend with your kids, make the best of it with fun activities. Wondering how to keep your kids occupied? We have listed down six activities you can do with children when you are stuck at home. Take a look.
Fun Activities To Do With Your Kids While At Home
Here are the six activities you can try with your children:
1. Cook With Your Kids
Instead of keeping yourself busy in the kitchen while letting your kids alone, you should always encourage them to join you in the kitchen. Kids love to get included in activities done by elders. It would help them to learn new things and understand the value of different cooking items.
2. Kids Love Painting
You can never go wrong with painting activities with your kids. Young kids love to portray their imaginary world with a paper and brush and colours. You can also help your kids in painting to give them encouragement.
3. Games And Puzzles
To increase the functional activities of your kid's brain, games play a vital role. Puzzles, building blocks, shapes and sizes are all important games to give their brain a good exercise session.
4. Watch Movies With Them
Kids love movies. Digital platform are overflowing with movies specifically made for kids. Be it an animated one or anything informative, encourage your kids to watch them with you. This will not only make your kids stay engaged but will be a great time pass for you too.
5. Involve Kids In House Chores
As we have already said, kids love to get included in activities with their elders. So it would be a great fun for you and your kids if you involve them in household chores. It would help them learn sweeping, dusting and washing clothes or maybe how to make their bed.
6. Encourage Them To Write Letters
Staying homebound can make your kids feel socially isolated. They must be missing their school friends. Encourage them to write letters to their friends instead of letting them watch your phone. This will be a great practice of writing and learning new words.
Make your kids feel happy during this lockdown period with these activities. Remember to continue with them even after we all get back to our normal lives.
