Title: Top Activities for Kids in Quarantine Time

Top Activities for Kids in Quarantine Time
1. Reading
  • Yes, this is the number one activity that is
    enjoyable and profitable at the same time. There
    are many parents who complain that their kids do
    not like to read. The fact of the matter is that
    if parents read, children also will read sooner
    or later. There are many ways to get hold of good
    books. If your local library is closed, you can
    still borrow e-books or audio books through
    online systems that can be downloaded to your
    smartphone. Moreover there are animated
    stories and e-books available online for

2. Cooking
  • Most kids love cooking. Home isolation is an
    ideal time to let kids try out simple recipes for
    the family, under parental supervision. Baking,
    with its promise of flavorful aromas filling the
    house, has special appeal for kids and there are
    plenty of kid-friendly recipes available. It will
    be a great family bonding experience if all
    members of the family get together and create one
    special dish per day. Besides teaching kids an
    essential skill for life, cooking together will
    promote the value of home-cooked food, which may
    linger even after these troubled times.

3. Family movie nights
  • Family movie nights are another great way for
    bonding and fun. With movie theatres out of
    bounds due to social distancing, your mini-screen
    provides the nearest experience. This is an ideal
    time to make sure that you have watched all time
    classic Family movies. Dont forget to get your
    bag of popcorn for the night!

4. Family game time
  • You never get too old for some board games such
    as Scrabbles, Monopoly, Game of life or Chinese
    checkers. Lazy Sunday afternoons are perfect for
    such games. If not board games, a simple game of
    cards should provide the family a couple of hours
    of fun and bonding.

5. School time
  • In many parts of the world where there is a lock
    down, schools operate online. However, if you
    live in a place where online learning is not
    feasible, do not let your childrens education
    suffer. You can homeschool your kids, and there
    are great resources available, tailored for
    homeschooling. The syllabuses available for
    homeschooling and their resources are so varied
    and numerous that no parent will be left
    wondering whether they are suitably qualified to
    teach their children or not.

6. Spend time with friends and family online
  • A home isolation time can prove to be really
    lonely, and kids will long to be with their
    friends every single day. Even though it is a
    poor substitute, video calling is a useful ally
    at this time. You can choose from different
    options such as FaceTime, Skype or Zoom. A
    certain amount of socializing is necessary at
    this time, to prevent family members sinking into
    loneliness and depression, out of touch with
    friends and extended family. Whats more, it
    gives you the feeling of togetherness in tough

7. Cleaning
  • It may sound very much like the chore it is, but
    cleaning is definitely one of the activities for
    your home isolation time. There may be furniture
    that needs dusting, clothes that need sorting
    out, and childrens toys that need to be washed.
    The family can divide the tasks among its
    members, making sure that they are
    age-appropriate. Cleaning can be a boring task,
    but the results are often very satisfying.

8. Gardening
  • Fortunate families who have an outdoor garden can
    spruce up their flowering plants and vegetables
    during this isolation time, tending to them with
    the extra time at hand. Gardening is a great
    hobby to cultivate both for adults and children,
    and your plants bearing flowers or fruits gives
    you a sense of accomplishment that few other
    activities do.

9. Journaling
  • COVID-19 is a major event in the history of the
    human race as it has resulted in the loss of
    lives like no other natural disaster has in
    recent times, and plunged the economies of
    affected nations into a dark future. We need to
    have enough sense of history to realize that
    these are extraordinary times indeed, and are
    worthy enough to be recorded. Families can record
    their feelings, uncertainties and simple joys
    while undergoing quarantine or isolation during
    COVID-19. Such journaling will keep memories
    fresh and give an outlet to feelings of
    frustration that isolations gives rise to. Kids
    also can take part in journaling by drawing, and
    writing simple words and sentences.
