Parent 24 has shared some lovely ideas regarding fun activities to entice little bodies to be creatively busy. So much time is spent cooped up at home, due to lockdown and Covid safety measures, it is important to still encourage stimulating activities. Fine and gross motor skills are practised in a fun manner and the whole family can take part in some of the hobbies. From gardening to dancing to baking, children can learn new skills, while at the same time spend priceless time with mom, dad or siblings.
What makes this article especially interesting is the fact that videos are attached, demonstrating and explaining origami, gardening, hip hop dancing, magic tricks, as well as yoga for kids.
After the last couple of months of stress and uncertainty, we wanted to share this blog post about how to reset and how to rebuild parent-child relationships. Our children are struggling and do not understand everything that is happening which is why we want to place focus on building and maintaining strong relationships within the family unit.
We found a lovely activity pack created by Long Creations that will keep the kids busy, help them to understand and process the world we are experiencing at the moment. It might even spark some conversation at the family dinner table.
