With the current coronavirus pandemic spreading throughout the world and leaving many families stuck inside their homes, parents have a unique opportunity to stay at home and spend more quality time with their children. It’s very rare that this happens with both parents often working or busy with shopping and meetings during the day.
With so much time to spend indoors under self-quarantine, it can become challenging to come up with new ideas for fun activities to keep children entertained.
Keeping that in mind, we are going to take a look at some fun and educational activities that you can do with your children during the COVID-19 lockdown. Let’s get started:
Art Projects- one of the best ways to nurture a child’s creativity and imagination is introducing them to the world of art. There are many art projects that you and your children can do together. From making origami animals and cutting and making stylish clothes for dolls, to using a mirror to practice drawing self-portraits, taking photographs with different angles and lighting conditions, and exploring paint and clay, art projects can be used to pass the time and teach them how to use their creative abilities.
Cooking- children love to be creative and that includes in the kitchen. Children can practice their cooking skills with some help from their parents and they can learn a very valuable, and useful, skill. Start with simple recipes such as cookies or bread and work up to an entire meal.
Outdoor Activities- while you can’t leave your house, children can still play outside in the garden. Activities including scavenger hunts, fun games of tag and other outdoor play will also help keep them healthy and fit. Children can use their imagination and create their own games.
Learning Adventures- using the internet, take your children on a learning adventure and teach them something new about the world around them. You can find educational videos or take a virtual tour with Google Earth.
The coronavirus pandemic will be under control before we know it and children everywhere will be back in school and able to visit their favourite parks, zoos and beaches again.
