So far, in 2020, theme parks, zoos, parks, and beaches have closed. Although children are spending more time at home than ever before, there’s no reason why the whole family cannot have a blast.
If you’re struggling to find fun things to do with family at home, you came to the right place. Read on to get started.
1. Put Your Chef’s Hat On
Staying at home with your family can give you an opportunity to plan a lot of fun activities. Having more time at home with your children, it’s the best time to practice your baking skills.
It’s never too early to start teaching your kids how to bake cookies or cupcakes.
It’s important you involve them in the entire process from the beginning. If you’re going to bake cookies, have them use the cookie cutter to make the shapes. In the case of chocolate chip cookies, you can have them mix in the chips into the dough.
Kids also would love frosting the cupcakes and adding sprinkles to their creations.
2. Backyard Picnic
If your family loves the outdoors, there’s no reason while they cannot experience it while social distancing at home. With summer coming up, you can prepare a picnic at home so your kids don’t miss out on the experience.
To give your family the authentic picnic experience, make sure you prepare a traditional menu. In your picnic basket place the sandwiches, potato chips, fruit slices, snacks, juice pouches, and more.
Also, make sure you bring the blanket and plenty of activities. The point is to avoid going into the house and pretend you’re in a real picnic.
If you want to take it to the next level, wait until it gets dark and observe the stars.
3. Go Camping Inside
Although a campsite might not be available, there’s no reason why you cannot recreate it in your living room.
If you have a tent, it’s time you push your furniture to the side and leave room for your tent in the middle.
You can still have a great campsite experience without a tent if you get creative with your blankets. Your children will love helping you build a fort in your living room.
Also, who says you need a real fire? Using flameless candles, you can create a makeshift fore and tell camping stories.
Of course, you cannot forget about the hot dogs and s’mores.
4. Arts and Crafts
Plan a day of arts and crafts with your family. You can have watercolor activities ready for them to bring out their creative side.
If you want to take your artistic side to the next level, you can also help them put together a children’s book. Once their masterpiece is ready, a children’s book printing service can help you bring your creation to life.
