Are you struggling to keep your kids productive during this enhanced community quarantine?
Fret not! Here are 3 simple yet fun activities to do at home that will entertain your little ones and make their day a little bit brighter:
1. Exercise with the kids
Who says being healthy can’t be fun?
Spending time with your children doesn’t have to be all about textbooks and problem-solving. You can also keep them entertained by putting your child’s favorite music on and starting simple exercise and dance routines.
KidsHealth even claims that kids who are physically fit are better able to handle physical and emotional challenges. Strengthen your bond with the youngsters in a practical and healthy way!
2. Cook nutritious meals
From decorating bread or pastries, frying eggs, to letting the kids collect ingredients from the fridge, cooking is a practical way of spending time together while you’re stuck at home.
Letting the kids help you in the kitchen, according to Carolyn Tomlin of Early Childhood News, encourages creativity, builds self-confidence, and develops their small motor control.
Because bonding over food is an activity that other members of the family enjoy, a stay-at-home cooking show would be a great idea to uplift the household, too!
3. Play educational games
Do you know that educational games are helpful tools in developing your children’s thinking process while keeping them engaged?
One of the educational games that will surely challenge their brains is the Oy! Oy! The Oyayi Game Show app. You and your kids can enter the world of Kuya Maki, Tama Raw, Bon Haribon, Diva Butanding, Dok Pil, and Tarsiera with over 300 questions about Family, Arts, Culture, Environment, Literature, and History! Your little ones can also learn from its fun trivia and laugh over the hilarious bonus questions!
The good news? This app can be downloaded for free on the Apple App Store.
Now that the kids are free from homework and classes, isn’t this quarantine a perfect opportunity to spend quality time with them? Aside from doing exercise, cooking, and playing, it’s a good time to show affection and influence them with good values that would come handy as they grow up.
As Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
