Top 10 Stay-at-Home Ideas
1. Puzzle Piece Hunt
Make a puzzle more challenging by hiding the pieces around the house first! Create a scavenger hunt with clues or simply play "hot or cold" as kids search.
2. Board Game Time
Board games are a great alternative to screens, but if you're short on players, consider playing over Skype or Facetime with a far off friend!
3. Swap Coloring Pages
Draw a picture with a thick black marker, and ask a friend to color it in! Consider swapping pages with a friend through the mail to stay in touch!
4. Try a New Recipe
Real or imaginary, cooking up something new is always fun! Letting kids help in the kitchen is empowering and helps create healthy habits.
5. Put on a Play
Turn a favorite book or story into a play starring your favorite stuffed animals, siblings, parents or pets. All the world's a stage!
6. Play Outside
Outside time helps boost moods and immune systems, so grab an outside toy and get some fresh air whenever you can!
Odds and ends around the house can make great craft supplies, or you can get a kit with everything you need to make a fun guided project!
8. Write a Sequel
Don't let the fun stop with the final page or when the credits roll - write a sequel (or prequel) to your favorite book or movie!
9. Science Experiment
Learn something new with a science experiment! Many experiments require ingredients you probably already have around the house, or you can get a kit with all the supplies.
10. Dress up for Dinner
Host a "fancy dinner party" just for your household. Have everyone dress up in thier favorite outfit no matter how silly!
