10 Activities to keep kids entertained at home

UK goes into another lockdown and kids are at home with "home schooling". Parents have to constantly find new ways to keep the kids engaged and entertained at home.

Here is the list of 10 things that I have tried with my 7 year old son and he loved it.  I am sharing this with you:

 

10 Activities to keep kids entertained at home

 

1)    Make beautiful bookmarks

Art and crafts is one of the best ways to encourage kids to be creative. Making bookmarks can be very easy to start and engaging as well. Also, kids can use these bookmarks when reding books. They can easily spend couple of hours in making bookmarks withour supervision by parents.

2)    Make your own scrapbook capturing all your memories

Making scrapbooks is one the best ways to keep memories. Kids love to cut, paster images, write their experiences in the scrapbook. They love to decorate it as well. This can easily engage them for an hour every day, once they get into the habit of mainting scrapbooks with daily activities / memories.

3)    Wake up your inner pop star and get on with karaoke on YouTube

 

They do't need to be singer to participate in a fun karaoke session. Just go to youtube, put a karaoke song and start singing with your kids.

5)    Plant a vegetable/flower (there are loads of vegetables that you don’t need a seed and can grow from leftover scraps)

 

Kids love messy play and that's why they will love gardening as well. Why dont engage them in growing flowers and vegetables. For some of these, you don't need to buy seeds (onions, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes etc).

6)    Watch a movie (read our blog for recommendations) followed by a dance night (don’t worry if you don’t know how to dance, try ‘Just Dance’ on YouTube for some easy tutorials)

Once a while, you can treat them with a movie night / dance night.
