6 activities at home with children during quarantine

In the past few months my family has learned more than ever the values ​​of common activities. When Covid-19 ravaged the world, and the resulting Stay at Home and ultimately Safer at Home guidelines came out, my husband and I were looking for fun, but isolation-friendly things to do with our young children.

1. Improvised forts

The rain clouds filled the sky as cold liquid pellets hit my face. My child's disappointment grew as our plans for a campfire melted into puddles at their feet. Unfortunately, they dragged themselves back into the house while I gave in to the load of laundry in the hallway.

"Can we build a Fort Momma?" My youngest looked at me expectantly. "Sure," I smiled. It didn't take long for the giggles to start. My oldest daughter had the brilliant idea of ​​building a fortress that could withstand the rain. In front of long cardboard boxes, blankets, an umbrella and a whole range of random objects were dragged into the rain. What a disaster! But the end result was a ramshackle fortress worth taking the rain and three happy children inside.

2. Gardening

I took the sacks of earth out of the car and planted them firmly on the porch. My youngest daughter had torn open the packets of seeds with excitement and spread them on the porch floor. I sorted them carefully while my children stuffed earth into their pots. I instructed them how deep to plant the seeds in the ground and they carefully added water to them. A few weeks later, I heard the children squeak in excitement as the seedlings began to submerge. Gardening has given us many opportunities to learn and work together.

3. Dance parties

Is there anything funnier or more stimulating than dancing with kids? Dance parties are known to promote sour attitudes, induce laughter, stir lazy bodies, and strengthen family relationships in our family. When all else fails, turn up the dance music and tear up the living room carpet with your dynamite dance moves.

4. Cooking lessons

Cooking time for the familyMy kids have picky palates. I learned that choosing a dinner option that we both agreed on and helping with the change changed their settings. They began to think ahead of what their "turn to" eat to prepare dinner and felt more adventurous trying new foods of their choice.

5. Fairy Gardens

My children have reached their boredom and wanted new ideas. Enter the fairy tale garden. In an afternoon, a fairy tale garden can be laid out with a few everyday objects in the yard and some creativity. My children collected stones, twigs, dandelions and treasures from their rooms. We're not going to talk about the glitter glass I found the least …

They spent a lot of time working on their fairy tale gardens and were thrilled to show me their ideas. The best part is that they can expand their gardens all summer long.

Feeling stuck at home can lead to mild depression, apathy, and stress, among other things. With a little creativity, Safer at Home can become Fun at Home together. Be safe and stay healthy.
