When Boredom Strikes: Quarantine Edition

Reading Time:

Your kids have been at home for months quarantined, and you have gone through every activity you can think of to keep them occupied. Now summer is here, school is out, and you have run out of things for them to do. With summer camps and trips most likely cancelled, coming up with new and creative activities can be a challenge.

Sit down as a family and discuss things everyone would like to do this summer. Have you already done most of the things on that list? Well there are a few extra ideas that we’ve come up with that are fun and affordable to help fill up the rest of your summer plans. Take a look at the list below!

  • Go for a nature walk
  • A DIY craft
  • Create a slip n’ slide
  • Bake together
  • Go on a scavenger hunt
  • Host a paint night
  • Have a bonfire in the backyard
  • Play card games
  • Zoom family fun night
  • At-home spa day

After being at home with your family for months, it is still important to take time for yourself as well. That way, you’ll be refreshed and ready to spend the rest of your summer together as a family. You can still find cheap or free activities in your community that practice social distancing such as drive in movie theaters, going fishing, and even having a family picnic in the park! This is a unique time, and something you will all remember for years to come so  make the most of it!
