Fun Activities in Lockdown
The coronavirus epidemic has spread to nearly every country on the planet. Its expansion has left national economies and companies calculating the expenses, as governments try to implement additional lockdown measures to combat the virus’s transmission. This virus has not only harmed our physical health by causing symptoms such as headaches and high fevers, which are already dangerous, but it has also harmed the psychological health of children and the elderly. Many people have perished as a result of the illness, while many more are still infected and are hanging by a thread.
In this article, I will attempt to explain some of the finest lockdown activities that will make the lockdown bearable, at least for the children. It’s easier said than done to keep the kids happy and amused so that the parents aren’t interrupted while working from home, listening to cries of “I’m bored, let’s do something.” Here I am here with some potential methods to avoid this.
- Bingo or card games
A read-at-home bingo game will encourage your children to read more. This game is ideal if you have siblings of similar ages who can compete to see who can finish their bingo grid first.
Cookies, cakes, and brownies are all options. Baking is a fantastic way to learn about measurement, ingredients, and, of course, producing tasty treats.
- A Virtual Picnic
Grab a sheet and any food you have on hand for a living room picnic, or move the fun outside in your personal backyard if you have the space.
- Train a dog
If you have a family dog, why not take advantage of this opportunity to teach it some new tricks. Begin with the basics and work your way up to more difficult ones. Even an hour a day may make a significant effect.
- Do some cleaning or organising
I realize cleaning isn’t really “fun,” but with everyone out of school and work, the house is going to get dirty, and soon. Set aside a few minutes, even if it’s only 15 minutes, each day to prioritize organization.
- Practice instruments
If your children are learning an instrument, be sure to schedule an hour of practice time each day, or start encouraging them to play in order to develop a new interest or improve an existing one.
Lockdown and quarantine have been challenging for everyone, but we must remain in our homes so that we do not become ill, and every family must take advantage of this opportunity to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones!
