Creative ways to keep your children engaged while they spend more time at home.
Conduct a treasure hunt.
Play games, including cards, charades or board games.
Bake, make soup or prepare a simple meal.
Have an indoor or outdoor picnic.
Stories: Read them. Listen to them. Invent them.
Write and perform a play.
Keep a journal.
Draw with chalk.
Practice meditation. Not only does it help occupy the mind, it provides a way to deal with uncomfortable times.
Plant plants. All that's needed is soil and seeds or starts.
Make video calls.
Bird watch: Identify and list the birds that appear during the course of a day.
Take virtual tours. Is there a state you'd like to visit? A country? A continent?
Learn and practice a language, even if it's just counting to 10.
Learn an instrument. It's empowering to be able to create music, even just a few notes.
