As we learn to navigate the “new normal”, there is a challenge facing many parents that many didn’t anticipate. Cozy family togetherness poses a problem when you still have work to do for your job, but the kids are done with their eLearning for the day. There are no after school playgroups, no team sports and dance classes.
How can parents cope with keeping the kiddos safely entertained and occupied, so that they can finish their workday? Short of parking them in front the TV or game system?
Here are a few ideas of crafts and activities that can help bridge the gap and prevent screen-time overload. Even after the social distancing rules are relaxed, these are great activities to wile away a rainy day or chase away weekend boredom!
If you need additional ideas, there are lots of Pinterest boards, parent Facebook Communities, and home learning sites out there with additional activities and crafts. Your kids may find themselves looking forward to hands-on activities, so a little online sleuthing will turn up a whole world of creativity! Be adventurous!
