Covid-19 and what to do with your kids this Summer
The Coronavirus pandemic has made the quarantine time longer than expected. Entertaining kids at home every day seems like a difficult challenge to accomplish.
Doing routine activities can become tiresome and make kids get bored. Every parent should stay on the lookout for fun learning dynamics. Fortunately, many entertainment and learning centers have created an online window to maintain their activities public. This is an excellent option to distract kids and teens from the reality that COVID-19 has put us through.
At Camp Guaikinima, we care about the wellbeing of your kids and that their Summer stays as fun as ever. For this reason, we have created a list of activities that kids can do at home. Find a perfect balance between screen-time and real-world experiences with our mixed options.
Top 3 Coronavirus activities for kids
We have refined a long list of options to do at home during the quarantine. Kids must continue the learning they did daily.
Now that schools have closed, it is necessary to have a new system of learning, entertainment, and recreation. In this list, we have the best options for each of these elements.
1.- Learn at home
Learning at home is a new option for your kids to keep their knowledge active, and the internet is an excellent learning resource. Many free online courses allow you to set lesson plans to study.
Teach your kids how to read with their favorite book and then do recreational activities bases upon it, setting their imagination in motion. We propose holding a theatrical representation of the story you’ve read together or asking them to create an alternate ending.
There are many possibilities. You can also teach them math problems that come up daily. For example, into how many slices can you cut a pizza for the entire family? Stimulate your kid’s creativity and encourage him to keep going.
2.- Fun at home
For kids, there are always ways to have fun! For example, browsing kid-friendly web pages or watching the YouTube channel of your choice. You can find activities so that your kids follow tutorials to learn different entertaining activities, like drawing making crafts with recycled materials.
We also suggest painting on canvas or making different DIYs with your kids. Our campers always love it when we do this!
