Long stays with your children at home can easily lead to boredom or for them to do unproductive activities in the house. If you’re a parent stuck at home with your children and running out of things to do, you’re probably in need of some fresh ideas.
We created an infographic, Engaging At-Home Activities for Kids, that offers a myriad of ideas you might not have considered. Divided into four separate categories, this piece offers suggestions for crafts, learning, and healthy activities that will not only keep kids occupied for hours but can all be done from indoors. Now you won’t have to worry what the kids are up to and you can get some of your own work done.
Many of the infographic’s suggested ideas involve the use free resources you can fine online. If your kids complain that they’ve done all their puzzles, colored all the pages in their coloring books, played all their games, you’ll now have an idea they can’t refute. Thanks to the Internet and your home printer, you can provide kids with new coloring pages, puzzles, games and math worksheets. It’s easier than it’s ever been before!
In addition to online resources, there are tons of things kids can do with materials you already have at home. They can make puppets, do simple science experiments, grow a garden in the back, and build an obstacle course, just to name a few. All they need are their imaginations, and some objects they already have in the house.
Physical exercise should be a priority as well, especially when the kids are cooped up inside the house all day. A little time outdoors can be beneficial to arrange if possible. If not, there are still plenty of creative movement activities for kids to try indoors as well. Just be sure to clear out some room so they don’t end up ruining the furniture or breaking anything.
This infographic encompasses several activity ideas for parents to try with their kids at home – from printing coloring pages to educational projects. All of the listed activities can benefit crafting, learning, and health skills for kids. Check out the infographic to learn more!
