Creative Ways to Play with Your Kids During COVID-19


By this point, you might be running out of fun ways to play with your kids amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, a lot of us have been staying safe and inside for the vast majority of the time ever since late March or early April. 

For that reason, you and your kids are probably going a little bit stir-crazy at this point. Hey, we don’t blame you!

Play games with your kids 

If you are looking for a fun and interactive way to play with your kids, get them off the PlayStation or Xbox, and get them sitting around a circle and play a fantastic and new game. If you are looking for new games to play with your kids, there are many great ways to purchase fantastic toys and games in bulk.

Get a new pet 

This might seem a little drastic, but the truth is that if your kids have always asked you for a little puppy or kitty, there may be no better time than right now. After all, you are already stuck at home for the most part and have tons of time to train your fur baby. The important thing to remember is that your kids should have to take on a certain amount of responsibility for your new pet. Whether that means feeding them, watching them in the backyard, or something in between, you should turn your new pet into a valuable learning experience for your kids as well.

Take them on a hike 

While a lot of places are not open right now, some places that are very available for you and your family are outside places. Get on Google and search the web for some of the best outdoor spaces in your surrounding area. Just make sure that it is not too far of a drive away or your kids might start to act up in the back seat. With that being said, packing a day bag and some snacks and water and taking your kids out on the trail and showing them the beauty of the great outdoors.

Bake cookies or a cake 

Surely your kids have a sweet tooth and love to indulge in their favorite sweet treats. Well, why not spend an afternoon together in the kitchen making their favorite treat? Without a doubt, the very first cake or batch of chocolate chip cookies that they make on their own will be their most memorable and favorite ever! 

Build a fort

If you’ve got a lot of space in your living room, one great way to pass the time is build an elaborate fort using pillows, blankets and more. It’s a super fun way to get creative with your kids. The best part is that after you build the fort, you all can enjoy a great movie night while sitting in the homemade enclosure. Just don’t forget to leave a nice big window so everyone can actually see the screen!

Although the pandemic has been immensely challenging with every chore unorganized, I had a great time with my kids at home. What was even exciting was a lost parrot finding its way to our home. The little chatterbox is giving us the fun of a lifetime. The list given here is fantastic, and I would love to bake with my kids one day.

Now we do spend a lot of time at home with the kids. Getting to know them more, these tips are great. It is also helpful to give children a break from classes, to write an essay, which is always very tedious to write when there is no energy, there are great experts, and I am glad that sometimes I can turn to them.
