Keep Children Engaged During Isolation with These Fun Suggestions

With COVID-19 closing schools and canceling social events, you might be wondering how on Earth you’ll keep your kids entertained during self-isolation. Well, we’re here to save the day with a few great ideas! From hosting a dance party to writing a good, old-fashioned letter, here are four ways to keep your children occupied at home.

Have a Dance Party

Does your little one love music? Allow them to play their favorite tunes while the family engages in a good, old-fashioned dance party! Choose a playlist together, blast the music, and let them shake the sillies out.

Read Out Loud

We think of reading as a solitary pursuit, but the truth is some kids never get too old to find pleasure in being read to. And, no, you don’t have to read just children’s books! Ask your child to pick out a book and snuggle up on the couch together for a read-a-thon.

Play Would You Rather?

Kids love this-or-that games! Work their decision-making skills when you put together a simple, kid-friendly game of Would You Rather? Write tough this-or-that questions – like “Would you rather have super speed or super strength?” - on some paper, draw a question from the jar, and take turns answering honestly.

Write an Old-Fashioned Letter

The art of letter-writing is a dying one, but you can keep it going a little longer by encouraging your kids to send a message to a loved one. (Little ones can do postcards or draw in a greeting card.) This is a great way to keep family members close during isolation. And, who knows? Maybe your child will receive something in return!
