Once the kids are encouraged to do these, there will be a plenty of time they will spend on it and away from the COVID-19 chaos.
Encourage Them To Play Strategy Games
Be it puzzles or riddles, kids love solving them. Buy a good puzzle book or install an app having strategy ideas for kids and get started. Do not encourage kids to use mobile phones as it won’t leave them interested in the puzzles. Spend a good half an hour with your kids, playing brain games as this is the best time you can provide them with.
Engage Them In Physical Exercises
Who doesn’t love skipping? Invest in a skipping rope to encourage your kids towards fitness routine. Skipping ropes, Hoola hoops, badminton rackets and other sports stuff are easily available in the markets. Get your hands on them and get your kids busy. Physical activities are the best way you can divert your child’s attention from COVID-19 chaos.

Create a nice looking and attractive book corner for your kids with a table placed next to it. Buy them some books according to their interests and spend some time reading stories with them.

Buying children little indoor plants for them to take care is the best way to teach how to take care of them.
