We feel it’s safe to say that a maximum of us are getting bored from being it the kids or the adults and even the oldies for that matter; in this Coronavirus shutdown situation. NO school, NO outdoor play, NO office, NO college.
NO parties, NO gathering, and the list go on and on and on. Well nobody wants to sit idle but nobody was expecting a suddenly extended vacation in the first place.
It still seems manageable for the Adults to handle themselves but the kids, don’t have schools to go to and it’s getting troublesome for parents to handle them. So here are 10 time killing yet interesting activities for kids to do at home during Coronavirus shutdown:
1) COMPLETING PENDING HOMEWORK/ASSIGNMENT
Let’s start with the most boring part i.e. pending homework or assignment. Now that you and your kids have ample time and almost nothing to do, make them finish off their impending work.
2) MAKE THEM READ BOOKS THAT INTEREST THEM
Everybody must develop a habit of reading books sooner or later for obvious reasons. WE think this is something most of us miss out on because of other entertainment sources out there but nothing can replace the essence of books. Help your kids develop this habit as well. If you don’t have a lot of collection don’t you worry because e-books are there to save your day.
3) HAVE SOME FAMILY TIME
This is something we often forget to do because everybody’s the busy schedule; not like the old days wherein people used to sit together and chit-chat for hours and laugh aloud. WE feel this is very important because communication holds every relationship together, family being the first. So even if you haven’t done it for a while now is the appropriate time. Just sit together and rekindle your old memories together and We're sure everybody will love it.
4) MAKE THEM POLISH THEIR HOBBIES
In our hectic lives, we no longer find the time to relax let alone for our hobbies. Now is the time to pursue our hobbies as well. Everybody has a hidden talent/ hobby that they’d love to do given the time for it, and so do your kids. Even if they don’t have one it’s never late to develop a hobby. Just let them explore options and see what interests them and pick one.
5) HELP THEM DEVELOP NEW SKILLS WITH CODING SKILLS
Apart from the hobbies your kids already have, make them learn something new and useful that they can make use of in the longer run. In this era where technology has taken over everything, isn’t it a good idea to make your kids part of the circle as well. Let them learn how to Code. Why should kids learn to code? Coding will not only enhance Kid's computational skills but also foster creativity and other life skills like problem-solving and thinking.

6) INDULGE THEM IN ACTIVITIES THAT ENHANCE CREATIVITY
Ever heard of DIYs? It stands for DO IT YOURSELF! Just as the name suggests, make your kids indulge in a few creativity related activities to unleash the little creator inside them. There are a number of things that they can make of course under your supervision wherever needed. You could refer to Google or YouTube, they are filled with DIYs.
7) PLAY INDOOR GAMES TOGETHER
By indoor games, WE don’t mean video games and stuff. WE mean board games and brain teasers. They used to be a thing back in the day but considering the current generation, people don’t even look at them. They still are interesting and you better give it a shot now. Ludo, Snakes & Ladders, Carom, Card games, etc. there are so many options one could possibly think of.
8) LET THEM REDISCOVER THEIR OLD TOYS
Keeping the game's topic on, We're sure they're used to be games that your kids might have played with but no longer play. Help them find them and rediscover the essence and joy of playing with toys.
9) TEACH THEM HOW TO COOK
Cooking is another thing people should know how to do. Now that you cannot leave your houses, there are not very many items that everybody loves eating being addicted to eating junk. So to make things interesting, try out a few basic but different recipes using the same old stuff. Teach your kids as well because this will not just satisfy your taste buds but help them learn how to cook as well and nobody hates cooking so We're sure this will be a good experience for them and you will have some family time as well so it’s a win-win situation.
10) WATCH MOVIES TOGETHER
The best and most appreciated way for time pass is watching movies. Watch some classics or informative or Sci-FI movies (whatever genre suits you) with your kids. There are enormous movies out there that you can sit together and watch following a discussion after that as well. See what your kids learn and it’ll be fascinating to watch them raise questions and trigger their brain cells as well.
WE hope this helps you and your kids to utilize time in a good way and not just sit idle doing absolutely nothing. As long as this lockdown continues WE hope everybody is taking the appropriate precautionary measures on their part to let’s all stand strong and fight this epidemic together till then Stay Inside, Stay Safe!
