10 Fun Activities For Your Kids
1. Creating a music video with them
The lockdown in 2019 due to the COVID outbreak was an eye-opener to so many things, most especially our phone and electronic gadgets exploration.
One of them is the Tik Tok App. The Tik Tok App generally is used to make personal videos. So if you want to see your Kid’s dancing, singing and miming skills, make a video with them.
Guide and allow them to design these videos with phone stickers, emojis and the song they composed themselves. Be creative in their attire and let’s sell what they have got. Who knows, their video might go viral, making them a social media sensation.
In the end, you will be amazed by their skills and they also will be happy with themselves.
2. Play hide and seek games with them
Hide and seek games is enjoyed mostly in the house basement. This game is a classic in most homes.
It is the game of who finds the best hideous place in the house. If caught, you will be the next to search for others. So you can play with them to uncover hidden spots you didn’t know existed in your home.
3. Blowing Bubbles
The bubble blowing game was one of my favourite games as a kid. Since it’s my kind of game, you do not need to get an already made bubble from the store for some penny. Let me put you through the DIY to making homemade bubbles
- Get your a small bowl with water
- Add a bit of your detergent therein
- Allow to foam and form bubbles
- We are ready to go
You can use a straw as your bubble wand. There we go, begin the game.
4. Let’s go gardening
Do you have a space in your yard? If yes, you and your kids can do some gardening.
Get flower seeds or seedlings from the store and get your kids to work with you in the garden. They will be very excited to play and get all messy with the fresh and moist soil; and more excited to play with the water from the hose.
5. Get them involved with card or board games
Playing card or board games can be demanding but it’s definitely part of the fun activities for kids.
