Are you running out of ideas to keep your kids entertained, engaged and happy at home? If your kids are bouncing off the walls, here are some home activities you can try to inspire creativity.
TRACE YOUR FAMILY TREE
Younger kids can draw or paint a tree and add family members to the branches and leaves. Older kids can research the family tree by talking to family members. Alternatively they could research online to see how far back they can trace the family tree. This is one of the home activities you can do as a family and is both interesting and educational.
TAKE A VIRTUAL EXCURSION
Tour a famous museum online, head to a virtual zoo or explore one of the many great Wonders of the World. And bonus, you can do this from the comfort of your own home! There are lots of local, national and international zoos and wildlife parks offering free virtual tours or wildlife talks for families at home. Likewise, museums and iconic locations around the world are open online. These are a great educational experience for kids and adults alike.
LEARN TO FIX IT
A lot of family homes have an item that needs fixing, a wall that needs painting or clothes that need mending. Get the kids involved and learn to sew on that missing button, paint the wall or assist in repairing the fence or missing handle on the saucepan.
