We’re hunkered down with schools closed and social distancing in full effect due to the coronavirus. It’s a really difficult time for everyone. Here are a few fun ideas of things to do with kids at home (and remember, one day at a time, friends).
Broken crayons and an ice tray are all you need here (any shape is fine!). We love the blocked look but you can also go with regular bits of broken crayons in all rainbow colors and in ice trays too.
Really special way to remember a child’s favorite things. A great long project to work on during these months. Have older kids help photograph and write. A fantastic keepsake, they’ll love looking at it when they’re older too.
Spend an afternoon drawing and then host an art exhibit for the family. Growing up, my siblings and I would have coloring sessions for hours on end. With stacks of artwork, we’d then set up a gallery exhibit and charge our parents admission.
Grab a chalkboard marker and start creating (washable) art on your windows. So much you can do here. You can also use acrylic paints to make a rainbow or other design. They’ll scratch right off when dry.
