Fun Activities to do at Home with Your Family
During quarantine, my family has enjoyed a variety of fun and even educational activities that you can do right from home. Check them out:
Hang a bird feeder in your window to watch the birds. You can even make your own. Spend some time observing the birds. What color is the bird? What type of bird do you see? How many birds do you see? Do you see any animals besides birds?
Let’s get moving together! You can find some great videos to follow on YouTube! Some of our favorites are Cosmic Kids Yoga, Kids Workouts with Moe Jones, and Debbie Do!
Enjoy the fresh air & sunlight while you have a backyard picnic. Have the kids help make sandwiches, gather snacks, drinks, blankets, etc. You can add to the fun and play ‘I spy’ while you sit together!
Family Walk/Bike Ride
Can’t beat enjoying the sun while getting some exercise. Explore your neighborhood, park pathways, or trails while practicing social distancing from others.
This can be done both indoors and outdoors. Be resourceful with things around the house like tunnels, stepping stones, cardboard boxes, tables, and chairs to create a fun obstacle course.
Arts & Crafts
Get creative decorating windows and doors, make birthday cards for friends & family, or have a family coloring competition!
Video Chat with friends & family
You can use several different apps like FaceTime, Zoom, and Facebook messenger to catch up with family and have virtual play dates with your friends. It’s so refreshing to see the faces of family & friends. We all can appreciate some socialization.
There is so much to learn when it comes to gardening. Letting your kids help can be beneficial for everyone! Spend time talking about what you might plant, how to care for your garden, let them dig in the dirt, or go on a bug hunt!
Yes, it may get a bit messy but the experience of baking together as a family is worth it. Have your kids help gather cookware & ingredients, measure, & mix. It will make your special treat that much sweeter!
