20 fun things to do with your kids at home


Are you reading this at your home thinking what to do with your kids for the coming months? If so, you are at the right place!

3 months into 2020, and Coronavirus is still going strong. It has now spread to every part of the world, including the UK. Nobody knows whether schools will shut soon and almost people everywhere are now stockpiling for food and household essentials. Looks like everyone’s gonna hibernate in their house for a fair while.

As a mom with a 3.5 year old and a 6 month old, I’m not gonna have a fix schedule of learning. I’ll just let them have free play and more movie time for the most part. (Don’t judge people!) But free play and screen time can only last for a certain time and my children will get bored eventually.

So here’s 20 fun things I would do with my kids at home during this Coronavirus outbreak. And hopefully, when we have gone through the list, the situation will be better! *fingers-crossed*
