Simple Activities To Do With The Kids To Add Fun To Isolation Life

There are multiple parents that are having a hard time trying to entertain their kids during this crazy pandemic. Kids are struggling with distance learning and finding it hard to be away from their friends. As a mother of 3 I know the struggle is real and trust me I am also having a hard time with this homeschool stuff while working full time from home. 

As a daycare provider to essential workers in my home I have been able to coordinate a number of fun activities with my kids and those I care for and here are some great ideas for you to do as well! 

Outdoor sports like frisbee, badminton, volleyball, playing in the sandbox, bubbles and many more are a huge hit with my crowd.

Indoor workouts like yoga, fitness challenges and dancing can be easily found on YouTube and taught to your family with ease. 

Building forts and playing hide and seek are monumental to great childhood memories! These activities are super simple and cost absolutely nothing to enjoy. 

Balloons are one of the most inexpensive and fun filled activities to enjoy in any setting. You can play pass with just the regular ones or learn how to tie balloon animals using some YouTube videos! 

Board games are inexpensive and loads of fun! There are so many different choices depending on what your child enjoys and what age they are. We are all currently enjoying Perfection, Trouble, Battleship, and Bopit! There are many skills required to play these games to which is great for educational purposes! 

Reading and writing is always great and there are many free resources available to help you get educational! 

Learn about sea life with the New England Aquarium

Here is a great list of activities for those on a tight budget! 

What have you been doing to keep busy and have fun during the social distancing period?
