3️⃣ Break activities up into 30 min chunks.
It’s helpful for them to have structure to detour the, “I’m bored” every 2 min.
Here are some ideas:
🙏🏻Devotion / Bible time / prayer
📚School work – Not sure what to do? You’ll find our curriculum in my blog.
🎉Play time with each other – building forts
🏕Play time WITH YOU – I suggest games, getting outside, legos
🎨Painting / coloring
📝Creative writing – tell them to write letters to their future self about all that’s currently going on
💃🏻Dance party – Just Dance, Spotify is great (& free) for them to choose their own music
🧹Chores – YES give them chores! That’s why you had kids. At least that’s what my mom told me when I was a kid!
🙉Separate alone play / reading time – they will NEED this, and so will you!
📺TV time – Set the expectation of the amount of time at the beginning of the day. If you have Netflix, try the Who Was Show
🍽Have them help you with dinner
