Whether it’s spring break, summer break, or even a quarantine, it’s important to have a go-to list of activities to keep your children busy and away from those screens.
The Cleaning Game
Yes, seriously. You can turn almost anything into a game when it comes to kids. One thing we like to do in my family is create a point and reward system. The more they clean, the more points they earn. We give extra points for things like organization and getting along with their siblings during the process. For rewards, you can give a special treat or piece of candy, or even electronic time.
This is another fun activity to get your kids active, and burn some of that energy that we adults envy so much. There are endless workout videos online from 10 minutes to even 30 minutes that you can follow along with.
Kids are competitive. Time your kids during a scavenger hunt to see how many items they can find of a certain color or letter.
