Quarantine Pass time UPDATED (11 September 2020)
Updated: Sep 11, 2020
So this quarantine period and social distancing isn't ending. You've seen all you need to see on Netflix, Disney and Prime and you're kids are finally back to being bored!
Some (not many) of the links here are an affiliate links to a brand, I may earn a percentage (at no cost to you) this goes to support my writing work, video and content creation online
Firstly good on your for occupying them for this long! Secondly maybe I can help.
I found some fun activities online and on Amazon which could help in enhancing your kids pastime even more.
1. Educational Apps: These apps are apps that's I use for my daughter and now that there are online classes, I find these apps a great support for her education
TED ED - https://ed.ted.com/lessons
Story Bots: https://www.storybots.com (also on Netflix)
Brain Child: Netflix
Math Tango (App on iOS and Play Store)
English Worksheets according to your child's age: on Pinterest & Tpt)
Story Tel: (iOS App Store and Google Play)
Khan Academy (iOS App Store and Google Play)
2. Activity oriented 'Toys' : let's face it our kids are bored of their toys so having things their can build is fun!
3. Board Games (for one): I have one child so its always a challenge to know what games to engage her with when I'm busy in the kitchen or working. These are a few which are fun strategic.
Old School Games to play virtually:
A few weeks ago we played battleship with a friend's son. It was the most fun I had the whole quarantine. Unfortunately we couldn't finish the game but this is a cool idea with you have kids who are friends and are far away with the same game at home.
4. Musical Activities
For smaller children:
A unique instrument like the Accordion
For Bigger Children: Get a Guitar
During this time we as a family enrolled in Simply Piano, its pricey but so good. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who is interested in learning the piano.
5. Math Activities
Tangram is a wonderful math activity which is available on Tpt as well as online. But bought wooden pieces which is nice.
Thanks for reading this, hope these resources help you the way they have helped me.
