5 Fun Things To Do With Your Kids At Home
1/5 Let Them Help You In The Kitchen
Everyone in the house will need to eat, so make it into an interactive lab exercise. Let them join you to make breakfast, bake snacks or any meal. Have them crack eggs into a bowl or mix the mixture, and have tasting tests in between. Involving your kids in meal preparation may even make them less picky about their food.
2/5 Stimulate Their Minds With Lego
Make learning fun with Lego. Give them challenges like asking them to build the highest Lego tower or the most creative car. They will learn top solve problems, focus and pay attention to details.
3/5 Build Their Creativity With Arts & Crafts
Do you have a crafty kid? Nurture his/her creative talent with arts and crafts. With just a few inexpensive crafts supplies, such as paint, paper, Play-Doh and colouring pencils, you will be giving your child the tools he/she needs to spark imagination and creative play. From finger painting to drawing projects and creating sculptures, arts and crafts can also promote rich social interactions that help develop language skills and social cognitive abilities like understanding emotions.

If you have access to an outdoor space such as the porch or a backyard, letting the kids run around burn off their excess energy. If you don’t have access to a safe outdoor space, we suggest having an indoor dance party to get your kids' body moving. You can also include them in your workout like yoga.
