Are your kids bored? Are you? There are all kinds of challenges with everyone staying at home so I thought I’d share a few more ideas that came to mind recently about some things you might try to have a little fun. Maybe you can share this post and add some of your own ideas.

SET A NEW GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS.   Use these ideas to see if your kids can break a world record… https://kids.guinnessworldrecords.com/activities/try-this-at-home/

RIGHTNOW MEDIA And A Meal. Pick one of the many videos available for kids on RightNow Media and watch it together before a meal.  During that meal take a few minutes to discuss the theme and ideas of the video and how those may apply in your lives.

WRITE The Elderly.    Do some research or ask around and find some elderly people your kids can write.   Help them write short cards of encouragement to those who are elderly, enclose some photos and let them know you’re praying for them.

Use APP Games That Are Appropriate For Kids.   Find games like Heads Up for Kids or other games designed for kids where they have to guess words, act things out, etc.

Go Outside And Play CATCH.   We went out Sunday afternoon with a couple of our grandkids and played a game called Jackpot.  Make up your own games.  See how many times you can catch a ball, frisbee, etc without dropping it.

LEGOS Contest.   Make up your own Legos Contest using similar Lego objects people have to build in a certain amount of time.

SERVE SOMEONE by Mowing Their Yard.   If there’s someone in your neighborhood who needs help – or an elderly person or couple who could use help – offer to mow their yard and get your kids involved in helping you.

Make Cookies or Cook A Meal Together.   Teach your kids how to prepare a meal or do something fun like making Easter Cookies.

These are just a few ideas to get you thinking about your own creative ways to interact with your family during this time when we’re practicing Social Distancing and are self-quarantined.    You might want to share this post and add your own ideas with it.
