We hope you and your family are safe and healthy. We know that in these days of social distancing, you’re probably trying to think of things to do now that you’re spending more time at home. There are plenty of things you can do together to stay safe, educated, and entertained while also keeping in touch with loved ones. Today we’re sharing some of our favorites.
Hold a movie marathon. There are plenty of movies on Hulu, Disney+, and Netflix, among others. Postpone your strict screen-time rules and relax in front of the TV.
Make a fort. Think about how many hours you spent growing up building the perfect fort. It can provide hours of fun for kids both while building it and then nesting inside.
Do an easy craft. Crafts don’t have to be complicated – just use materials that you already have in your home. Give your kids some crayons and construction paper, and let their imaginations go wild or look up some cool ideas online for inspiration.
Write letters to loved ones. Have your children write a letter to a grandparent or other family member. It not only teaches them the importance of staying in touch with loved ones, but also helps them practice their handwriting.
Virtual Museum Tour. While visitors can’t roam the halls of these institutions right now, virtual tools and online experiences mean anyone with an internet connection can browse through world-class collections from home.
Prepare a simple recipe together. Get kids involved with family meals by having them help you prep the ingredients while you supervise.
Take a family walk. Gather the whole family together to go for a refreshing walk outdoors.
Virtual happy hour: While you’re practicing social distancing, get your beverage of choice and hold a group video chat with friends and family.
