The current COVID-19 pandemic has brought us more family time, but it also means you have to keep your kids occupied, happy and healthy whilst stuck at home. There are a lot of tips online on how to do this - from indoor games to DIY crafts. The trickiest part is to find what works best for your kids and your surroundings so here are a few of my ideas that might help.
Build a tent
It's time to make your kids feel like the architects of their life. Encourage your kids to build a tent. Let them explore the fun of camping. This will make an interesting and fun environment for kids to play and role play. Also, builds a sense of healthy competition while giving the taste of playing and working in groups. Here is an easy to assemble Fantasy Pop Up Bed Tent Playhouse you could try.
Mix education with play
How about mixing learning with games? When puzzles and blocks help your kid's mental growth, try things that will help your kid's learning. A perfect example is this Puzzle Educational Theme that comes in many interesting educational themes.
A very simple trick to keep your younger ones busy is to draw a few abstract elements on a blackboard and ask your kids to chalk each of the pieces in a different colour. Let them experience the power of colours coming together and the patterns and shapes getting a different look.
Another fun and easy product is the Magic 3D Drawing Pad Luminous Light Using this, your kid can create amazing drawings with a special stylus – pencils and paints are no longer needed!
Setup a waterplay
With summer approaching, why not set up a water fountain for kids. Toddlers always love to play with water. Let your children enjoy the fun. A water fountain need not have to be expensive. Check this Water Sprinkler Pad & Pool. It is easy to pack and quick to install. All you need to do is attach the water intake valve to your garden hose and change the water pressure to lower or raise the height of the spray
