In this midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, we stay at home as much as we can and follow the World Health Organization (WHO), Department Of Health (DOH), and Local Government Unit (LGU) protocols to help stop the spread of coronavirus. However, in this situation how our kids stay active and avoid too much exposure to gadgets? Here are some 5 simple ways to make them busy as a bee.

  1. Encourage Them To Do Household Chores

Yes, you heard it right. Let them involved in doing the household chores and be sure you join in to get them as a family. Sweeping the floor, washing dishes, and baking are samples of a simple task that they can do with you.You might want also to play songs that will uplift their mood.

  1. Indoor Games

Show them how we play our 90’s traditional Philippine games, such as jackstone, board games (ie. snake ladder, scrabble and dama), hand-clapping games, and bahay-bahayan. Give them insight and trivia that before we have limited resources of toys that we usually invent games without the need for anything but the players themselves.

  1. Dance and Sing Party

We can do a dance party and let your kids be the DJ and we could show them your best dance move. Also, you could play the Voice Kids for a change and you will be the coach. Or even a simple Videoke concert will add fun.

  1. Exercise

A simple stretching, Zumba, and simple calisthenics will do to stay them active that will maintain good health both physically and mentally. 

  1. Be an Active Role Model

Of course, you too should be an active model. If you’re too lazy and laidback to do activities, your children might imitate it. When your children see that you are enjoying time being active, they will be more likely to model your behavior.
