Top Stay at Home Activities to do with the Kids

Thursday, April 2, 2020

Many of us are now spending more time at home, and for those of us with children finding ways to keep them entertained is essential. To help, we’ve compiled a list of fun and educational activities that you can do with the kids to keep their minds active!

Make a puzzle station

Create a space in your house to play jigsaw puzzles, lego etc. A place the kids can go back and forth to all day. This is a perfect way to keep their concentration and they won’t have to tidy up.

Watch documentaries together

If you want to help educate and engage your child/children then documentary films or series’ could be the perfect solution. You’ll be able to find plenty of kid-friendly documentaries on streaming services like Netflix and iPlayer.

Wash their toys

Let the kids wash their plastic toys to encourage cleanliness and show them how to take care of the toys they already have. Add some tear-free bubbles, a couple of sponges and a towel to make this a fun activity!

Make a snack bar

Create a snack station - add some treats, fruit and other healthy snacks. Perfect for a quick snack between tasks and an excellent way to reward your kids for good behaviour.

Have a dressing up box

Find an empty box and fill it with old clothes or fancy dress items - even bedsheets. Then the kids can dress up and play with minimal clean up! 

Get the kids baking

As Easter is around the corner, why not help the kids make an Easter Nest Cake? An Easter classic, and a perfect way for the kids to help you decorate. Have a look at the recipe by following this link.

Enjoy arts and crafts

We hope this list will help for the next few weeks!
