We are home with our own children for the next few weeks, self isolating like you are hopefully doing as well! Parenting is tough at the best of times, so with the current pandemic issues, keeping the children occupied and stress levels down can be even tougher! We thought we could compile a list of the amazing content being shared globally to keep our kids busy while schools are closed. Check them out:
Your kids can have a book read to them by astronauts! Check out these ones here and here.
Check out these SuperHero Building Cards! So fun!
This list of virtual field trips is amazing! And check out the museum tours here.
Keep up with your child’s math: Khan Academy Math
This Facebook post has a very comprehensive list of educational resources!
Love these Lunch Time Doodles sessions with Mo Willems!
For your teenagers bored at home, they may also like some painting lessons from the Art Sherpa.
Here is a great list of educational shows to discover on Netflix!
A great long list of activities to do indoors with the children!
Scholastic has a great list of learning resources here.
Don’t forget to keep the children physically active, check out Yoga for Kids! And they can play musical instruments here.
As parents during this stressful time, we have to remember to that kids can entertain themselves too at times- allow them to be bored as they will come up with creative solutions to self entertain.
Don’t worry if they are getting too much ‘screen time’- we all have to do what we need to to get through this, but make sure to take some time for you too! We can only take care of others if we are taking care of ourselves too!
