So right now we are dealing with a strange situation we've never been in before and we're all just trying to do our best. One of the things that everyone with kids is facing at the moment is that we have to figure out how we're going to keep our kids occupied while they're off of school. Sure they're going to have school work for part of the time they're off, but if they had spring break scheduled in there that's a week of no school work and no leaving the house so what do we do?
There are lots of fun things that you can do at home to keep the kids entertained. Here are a few things that I came up with:
- Write and perform a play together
- Make pretend (or real) Youtube videos where your kid is the host
- Dance parties
- Family Karaoke
- Make your own escape room
- Have them help prepare meals - my kids love to help cook and bake. Besides keeping them entertained for 30 minutes to an hour it also teaches them a valuable life skill.
Here are some more great ideas from the website Active For Life .
Kids will go stir crazy and drive you crazy so try to find things to keep them occupied. We're all in this together if you have any other great ideas please share them in the comments section.
