We are all facing unprecedented times at the moment, as we adjust to living with lockdown and new restrictions on things we used to take for granted.
By now, the lockdown is something we are all likely getting used to, and the changes in society are no longer as surprising and odd-feeling as they initially were.
However, it’s easy to get bored when each day seems to be the same. In this blog, we explore a few ideas for activities that you can do at home with the whole family.
Do Some DIY!
If you are crawling up the walls during lockdown, maybe redoing your walls can occupy your time!
We all have things in our home we’ve been meaning to get round to or projects we’ve not found the time to begin. Lockdown gives us the perfect opportunity to crack on with things and get our home looking great with a DIY project.
Keep The Kids Entertained!
Anybody with children will know the importance and occasional difficulty of keeping them entertained. In a time of lockdown, this can be even trickier and be met with even louder calls of ‘I’mmmmm borreedddd!!’
There are lots of ways to keep the kids entertained, but sometimes it does require some creative thinking. Try to think about what your kids might like that they don’t always get the chance to do, and try to bring some magic to the lockdown situation!
Is there a budding artist in your family, or are you a dab hand at drawing or painting yourself?
Now is a great time to pick up that pencil or paintbrush and rekindle that old passion, creating some fantastic lockdown artwork and helping to pass the time at the same time.
Art, drawing, painting and writing are also great ways to keep kids entertained, and these are a wonderful way to bring the whole family together.
Never Bored With Board Games!
A further great way to bring the family together with activities is with a board game. These are always an entertaining way to spend an evening and can be as fun as they are competitive.
There are loads of classic board games out there and you may well have a few hidden away in the back of your cupboards. But there are always new board games to turn your hand to as well.
Puzzles too are a wonderful way to keep your brain ticking over, whether it’s classic jigsaws, sudoku or word searches - why not get the whole family involved with these?
Stay Safe & Stay Busy!
Be sure to stay busy and out of harm’s way as best you can during the current situation, and try to keep yourself and your family engaged in positive activity.
