We’re trying to add lots of helpful information to the At Home with Kids section of the website. These general tips from April are still relevant.
Here are some general tips:
Keep a positive attitude as much as you can and try and keep some kind of routine (easier said than done!). Remember, this too shall pass and there’s always Skype, Facetime, Whatsapp and other virtual ways of keeping in touch with others.
Exercise regularly (adults and kids), either in your garden or with a DVD at home. Yoga is a favourite in our house and Cosmic Kids’ YouTube channel is great for 20 minutes or so. There are lots of ideas for kids’ exercise circuits online, incorporating ideas such as bear crawls, star jumps, etc.
Self-isolation might even provide the perfect opportunity to potty train, since you will be at home for a prolonged period of time.
Now might be the perfect time to teach a new skill to your little ones. Tying their laces? Learning how to knit?
If you have a garden, print off a scavenger hunt – there are lots of free ones online.
