It wouldn’t be unusual if you and other members of your family are feeling higher levels of anxiety than usual as lockdown restrictions continue.
One of the things I keep playing through my head is the number of times I’ve said that I wish I had more time for X, Y or Z. I’ve had a list as long as my arm of things I wanted to get done at home, in the garden and so on – what’s that saying? Be careful what you wish for!
For all of us, 2020 has started with an unexpected twist. Typically for this time of year, the weather is getting warmer and the nights are lasting longer, but our doors and plans are remaining firmly shut and sealed. With the outbreak of Covid-19, the government has enforced social isolation to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.
We’ve collected tons of board games over the years. We always take a couple when we go away, but generally speaking ‘real life’ is so manic that there is rarely any time to just sit down and play a game.
If your children love spending time outdoors, try out these fun outdoor activities together, including chalking, sketching and more.
This week is actually school Easter holidays here, but with the weeks all blending into one, we’ve still been doing some home learning activities.
Technically we are in the school holiday period now, so the children would have been off school anyway – but with so many people having to cancel their plans due to COVID-19, and having spent the last two weeks home schooling children, the lines have become a bit blurred. Here are 5 activities to do at home.
As unsettling as this is for so many people, it’s also an opportunity to do things differently for a while. To talk more, to play more games and to teach your children things you never normally have time for.
