Fun Isolation Activities x

Hello readers,

Times are hard at the moment but we are all in this together. As all we parents know children will easily get bored during isolation and us parents struggle to keep the children entertained. here are my top 5 activities for some family fun.

1. Make a giant snakes and ladders board game. Find any old large pieces of paper or card and make your own giant board game. Get your child to help decorate the snakes and the ladders. This game will help your child improve math skills by recognising numbers and counting skills. If you don’t have coloured counters why not try buttons or spare change. Roll the dice and let the fun begin.😁

2. Make a den. Collect sheets, duvets and pillows and let your children take you on a journey through their imagination. Let your child be as creative as they can by building their own secret den. For the fun to go further let them have a secret picnic inside or even camp the night!

3. Does your child love stories? Why not read them their favourite stories and act it out as a family. This will help your child develop their communication skills whilst having lots of family fun. (My favourite is The Three Little Pigs).

4. Junk modelling. Who doesn’t love this? Find any old / empty boxes and help create a model with your child. Get them to paint or colour the model in. Ask them questions about what they made, why do they like it. Can your child identify shapes. This activity is fantastic for letting your child’s creative thinking take the lead.

5. Let’s have a dance. This is a priceless activity to get the family moving together whilst having fun. Put on some music and let your feet do the work. This is a great way to get active without even realising. Have Fun!

I hope these ideas come useful to you , there are many more to come. Stay Safe. Stay Well.🌈

Love Mamma x
