Quarantine

Have you found it difficult to discover activities that the whole family will enjoy? Don’t ever be concerned! These activities are ideal for weekend family outings when you and your children want to get out of the house. Whether the sun is shining or not, you’ll be sure to find something to please everyone. 

 

Make a picnic plan

If your family misses park picnics, you can recreate this summertime pleasure in your own backyard. Begin by preparing items such as sandwiches, fruit, and potato chips. Fill a basket with everything you’ll need for your picnic, whether it’s a blanket on the lawn or a patio table. Your family will benefit from the fresh air as well as a hit of vitamin D!

 

Get to work in the kitchen!

For chilly or gloomy days, don’t skip indoor family activities. Cooking and baking are available alternatives. Since they can knead the dough with their fingers, kids especially enjoy making pie crusts, biscuits, and pizza. Once the baking is completed, relax and enjoy a bite with a cool beverage.

 

Test Your Tastebuds

Choose an exotic meal that your kids haven’t tasted yet, such as Thai or Cambodian cuisine. Locate the country on a globe or map, and read a brief encyclopedia or Internet introduction to the culture of that country. Then, for lunch or dinner, prepare a signature dish from that country, such as lentil Dahl or Cambodian Fried Tarantulas.

 

Camping in the Deepest, Darkest Depths of your Backyard!

A backyard campout is a fun way to spend a night or celebrate a birthday! By stringing a rope between two trees and hanging a large tarp, blanket, or canvas over top, you can quickly build up a sleepover tent. Simply drape a waterproof tarp below, then pile plenty of blankets and comfortable pillows on top to make it cozy. String lights inside the tent and over neighboring shrubs to complete the scene. To your children, the more lights you have, the more beautiful the night will appear.

Fill the night with fun games!

Get your old board games out of the closet, make some snacks, and get ready to play! You’d be surprised how much fun it can be for a family to play monopoly in the evening.

 

Start a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Project

You can perform a DIY project with your child on weekends when the air is too cold to really enjoy the outdoors or the puddles are too deep to safely play in the yard. Children already have an infinite imagination paradise. You can show them how to take their bright ideas and turn them into something tangible. The beauty of DIY projects is that each one reflects the creator’s personality. There will never be another design like it, which is a wonderful thing. Your children will learn how to make a birthday card, origami creatures, paintings, collages, volcanoes, and other fun crafts, as well as learn something new about themselves.

 

Bike Trip Around the Neighborhood

Since we still cannot enjoy nor go on bike trips to other places far away, we still have our last option, the neighborhood. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t enjoy a wet weekend with your children. Bike riding, on the other hand, is a fun and educational way to spend quality time with your loved ones. Your children will learn that the journey may be just as interesting as the destination, and you will both have the opportunity to see the world outside of the car. Not to mention that this is an excellent time to teach children about driving rules

Muffin Battles

For this funny family activity, get your sprinkles, crafts, and phone ready! Who doesn’t want to play a game that includes both food and a homemade commercial? If you want some friendly rivalry, you can even make it a challenge with two-person teams. Begin by making delectable muffins. Allow each participant to customize their muffins and make their own muffin packaging. Here are some suggestions. Use anything you have on hand, such as leftover cardboard boxes, ribbons, gift wrap, construction paper, markers, and so on. Then, compose a script for your muffin company commercial with your friends—be as creative as you want! The final step is to use your phone to film your commercial. To add some flavor and extra chuckles, don’t be afraid to utilize some amusing applications or stickers.

 

Unleash the Inner Gardener in you!

Take some time to start a new gardening project! This is a wonderful family project that is both informative and delicious in the long run. Not to mention saving you time and money by reducing the number of items you need to buy at the supermarket. Gardening is one of the best activities to do at home for relaxing, being creative, and feeling rewarded. Consider the possibilities: fresh basil for handmade pizza, rosemary for baked chicken, tomatoes for pasta.

 

Don’t let your social distancing end there

Staying at home and social distancing may be a part of our daily lives for a long time. However, we are only limited by our ingenuity in terms of what we can do to stay sane and keep our minds — and those of our children — occupied. Between virtual lessons and Zoom family get-togethers, there are 50 terrific social distancing activities to do with the kids and family.
