Nothing drives sanity into the ground faster than kids nagging at you repeatedly for something new to do or telling you on a loop that they’re bored.
It’s happened before and it will happen again (and again and again) before, and after, this pandemic is behind us.
How to keep kids busy, and yourself sane.
After so many weeks at home, the kids (and you) are probably getting sick of trotting out the same activities.
We can’t control how long we’ll be in lockdown, but we can give our kids ideas that will amuse them long enough to at least get a load of washing hung on the line or finish a cup of coffee.
So in between letting them be bored from time to time and free play (especially if they have siblings to play with) often, your best bet is to consult the following resources for endless easy, educational and entertaining activities that can be done in your own home.
Inspirational At-Home Activities
Babies (0-12 months) can be especially hard to entertain for any length of time. Baby Sensory has you covered with easy online classes for our littlest kids! Messy Play with Charlie is also another great page full of simple ideas for engaging under 2s.
Singing and Dancing
For some ready-to-go fun arts and crafts activities that are easy and inspire creativity, check out The Village Kids Store Gymea, Cake it Up Creative and Funky Planet. There are also plenty of educational games, activities and art supplies for kids on the HolaNanu website.
These resources will prove to be helpful even when people are saying Corona-what? So bookmark this page so you can quickly find it whenever you’re low on creative inspo.
Don’t forget you can always refer back to our archive of Busy Kids articles for a whole lot more easy, educational inspiration.
We hope taking the search out of finding fun ideas helps make your day that little bit easier 🙂
