Keeping Your Baby Entertained During The Quarantine
Hello, my dears! Today is a perfect time to share with you some ideas of how to keep your baby entertained during this quarantine time.
There are so many things you can do at home to entertain and educate your child during the lockdown; having fun and providing normal life while the rest of the world is slowing down. Keeping that in mind, here are some amazing ways to entertain and educate your kids during this time.
1. DIY Board Games
Give your kids a poster board, all the needed stationary and ask them to design their own board game that you can play all together later. This fun activity will also help to develop critical thinking and creativity of your child. Once it’s done, use it for a family game night and test your skills!
2. Go Camping in the Backyard
How about mini at home vacation for keeping kids entertained during quarantine? Set up a tent in the backyard and have an amazing full camping experience without ever leaving your home. Eat roasted marshmallows and hotdogs for dinner, tell fairytales while looking at the starts and curl up in sleeping bags to spend a night outside
3. Virtual Experiences
Toddlers always seem to be fascinated with animals. Staying at home doesn’t mean your child has to miss out on visiting zoos and seeing different animals. Places like museums, zoos, and theme parks are closed to public use, but many of them have expanded their digital offerings to include virtual tours that allow you to explore their space right from the computer. From the Louvre in Paris to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, your kids can get an inside look at some of the most interesting places in the world.
4. Cooking in the kitchen
Getting your child involved in the kitchen—whether it’s baking, cooking, or helping out with other tasks is perfect for entertaining and educating them. For a start, letting kids join in with what you’re doing will help them to feel included and valued to you. Plus, it’s a really fun way to introduce kids to new ingredients and explore different food. There are some simple, child-friendly recipes that you can try out together such as cupcakes, or making your own pizzas which kids will love.
5. The Educational Apps
Again, screen time is not ideal, but desperate parents can keep their infants entertained with educational games and apps geared toward babies. The EasyPeasy app has options specifically for little ones in the 0-2 years age range.
So, we are done! I hope you got some cool ideas to try. Stay safe)
