Quarantine Kids: How to keep them entertained
Which camp are you in: full of ideas or running out of inspiration when it comes to entertaining the kids? While some kids are little balls of energy who always find something to do, there are some ways to inspire your kiddos and introduce them to new activities & toys.
Read on to discover some of the newest toys & cool stuff for kids, handpicked by Play&Go. (Because we are parents and know a thing or two about having fun!)
Play games together
Even if it feels like you have no time to yourself and doing MORE things together feels suffocating, spending a little quality time together can actually pay off more. When kids notice that you are present, they can feel more secure and fulfilled (and can give you more space in return by playing by themselves).
Board games and puzzles are a great way to get started. Use quick games like Bananagrams tocreate your own word games. Card games like SET are great for spatial recognition so you can feel good about the games too.
