35 Activities to Do When Kids are at Home

35 ways to keep kids busy at home

Most schools around the world are officially closing next week due to the coronavirus epidemic. Ours here in France will be closed from Monday till next month. Some parents are trying to figure out childcare while they will have to go work or how they will be keeping their kids occupied throughout the day, so let me help make it easy for you. I asked some blogger friends of mine to share some of their favorite posts on how to keep kids busy when you have to stay home.

But before we get to that I am going to share some tips.

  • Get outside every day, rain or shine, for at least 30 minutes or more.
  • Meet up with friends or neighborhood families for a quick coffee or snack with your kids
  • Practice patience, your kids may be bouncing off the wall, take a step back and try avoid getting upset
  • Use every moment as a time to connect with your kids and encourage learning experiences.
  • Teach them the skills you have been meaning to teach them and have put off.
  • Ask them to help you with the chores and other household tasks.
  • Make it FUN!

Now onto the activities…
