Are you running out of ideas to keep your little ones occupied? We’ve got heaps of activities to keep them entertained and happy at home.
As measures to control the spread of coronavirus intensify, your kids are most likely spending all of their time at home. If the idea of finding ways to keep them entertained and out of trouble is stressing you out more than it should, then we are here to help.
Whether you’re attempting to co-exist with your little ones while you’re working from home or trying to pass the time now that the park is out of the question, here are some ideas to keep your little ones happy and entertained at home.
1. Visit a Virtual space
Thanks to technology, there's now the option to visit a bunch of child friendly spaces online, from the comfort of your own couch. Here's some of our favourites.
2. Get Colouring
Time to crack open the crayons, coloured pencils & washable textas. With so many free online printable colouring pages available, the possibilities are endless. Our favourites include Crayola Essential Kids and ABC Kids.
3. Get Crafty in the Kitchen
Little fingers love to keep busy and learning new tricks! Enlist your littlest apprentice in some fun (and delicious) memories in the kitchen. Try making a DIY Pizza station, cookies with sprinkles, banana bread or salad in a jar. More recipe ideas here. All you’ll need is some enthusiasm and patience.
4. Sensory Play
Have an empty plastic tub at home? Your little one can give their toys a bubble bath. Added bonus, this encourages good hygiene! If you want to amp up the experience you can even add a scented bath bomb which will have the whole house smelling lovely.
5. Get Classy
Now is a great time to teach your kids some new skills. Whether it’s Ballet Gymnastics Karate, Yoga, Learning a New Language or just general exercise, there’s so much available online right now. Even though the social elements of these classes are missing, there’s still plenty of fun to be had. Incorporate a regular class into your week, to keep the monotony at bay.
