3 Fun things to do with kids at home
1. Play a different variation of hopscotch.
This easy game is great for kids and very fun to do. Draw a hopscotch grid and introduce the game to your children in case they don’t know it yet. Once they have mastered the game, you can start getting creative.
To start, change some of the sizes and shapes on your hopscotch grid. All you have to do is draw the usual squares of hopscotch and place them far enough apart, so that your kids really have to jump in order to reach them.
Another way to change the game would be to have your kids face backwards as they jump on the grid. Just be as creative as possible. If you want to get your kids more involved, you can even ask them to invent new rules to spice up the game.
2. Put a recipe book together
If your family loves to cook or bake together, this can definitely be fun things to do with kids. Just choose your family favorites and make a book of recipes together. Take photos of every dish as you make it, add it into your book, and make up names for each dish as a family.
If your family loves Phineas and Ferb or James Bond, then secret messages will be a fun thing to do for you and your kids. You have two choices here: use secret codes or invisible ink. Challenge each other to create secret codes and write certain messages with them as you try to decipher each of them.
