The stir-crazies have officially taken over your home. Finding ways to keep yourself entertained—let alone the kids—became a challenge after day one of social distancing. And now that you’re weeks into quarantine, the struggle is undoubtedly real. Take a deep breath and read on as we help you navigate this new life at home with the kids, starting with ways you can get them involved with home improvement projects—it’s a win-win activity that you won’t want to miss out on!
Hand Them a Paint Brush
Whether you decide to finally repaint the spare room or want to scan the house for paint touch-ups, getting the kids involved with a paint project is a great way to keep them entertained while you accomplish a home improvement goal. To keep things clean, lay down some old bedding or a tarp before starting the project.
Make Chores Fun
Spring cleaning is here! And being at home presents the perfect opportunity to put this seasonal cliché into action. It’s also a great activity for bored kids. Instead of forcing these chores, try to spin them into games. For example, the 10-second tidy game can inspire some friendly competition between siblings, work in some cardio, and keep the home clean.
Rearrange Living Room Furniture
Change is good; it can help you discover new things and inspire creativity. Start with rearranging the furniture in your living room. Get the kids involved by asking them where they want things, maybe even toss in a game of “the floor is lava.”
