You find yourself spending a lot of time at home. Whatever the reason, you’re stuck at home and want to maintain a hint of your sanity!
Here are a few things you can do to stay active and entertained if you find yourself spending more time at home with your kids.
Bring out the board games!
Have some fun and encourage a little friendly competition with a game night! Bonus points if you add in some comfort food along with it. Bring out all the board games, puzzles, and plain ‘ole imagination to get the entire family involved. For example, we love to play a game we call: “Search & Find!” Here’s how it works: We use any of the kid’s small toys. One person asks everyone else to close their eyes and hides the toy in plain sight, and then, everyone has 10 seconds to find it!
It’s way more fun than it sounds haha, promise.
Some family favorites:
- Monopoly (Board game or card deck version)
- Candy Land
- Snakes and Ladders
- Black Jack
- Rock, Paper, Scissors
- Rhino Hero
Work it out
Keep your health and wellbeing in check by being diligent about your daily movement. If you’re usually a gym freak, then consider apps, youtube, and other virtual memberships to get it done! Or, go simple with a tracker and walk your way to better health, alone or with the family.
Apps/Websites Worth Your Time:
- Cosmic Kids
Grow your brain!
Discover a new language or talent and challenge yourself to learn something new! Whether for fun or work, it’s all okay. There are a ton of resources online, both free and paid, to make this happen.
Time for a spring clean up!
Check off that to-do list you’ve been ignoring! Tackle the round the house jobs you’ve been abandoning. Give your house a refresh, a new look and clean it needs. There’s no better way to clear your mind and get focused than to clear out everything around you.
Netflix and chill
Who doesn’t love a good binge session? Funk it out, stay in your PJs, grab those snacks and snuggle up for hours. Start a new tv series or catch up on the old. There’s no such thing as too many hours. No limits, now go!
Chef it up
Does Master Chef inspire you? Or any magazine/tv show. Use this time to discover new cooking techniques. Finally, try that recipe. Teach yourself and your kiddos a new skill and enjoy the experience together.
