8 DIY activities that will aid skill development in children
While you’re stuck at home with the lockdown and with the kids having virtual schooling in this period, don’t despair! It’s easier than you think to grab a few easy things available at home and let their skills develop. These fun activities for kids are easy, DIY, and can mostly be done with everyday items that you have around the house. You just need these sparks of inspiration to get the ideas flowing. What’s that you hear? It’s probably the sound of laughter and concentration, and certainly not a kid yelling, “I’m bored!” from the other side of the house.
If it’s rainy and you’re stuck indoors, there are tons of painting projects, inside crafts, and small-scale obstacle courses and activities that’ll hold their attention for long stretches of time. Or, if you’re able to head to the terrace/open ground, there are fun ideas for bubbles, water-based activities, and activities that get their little bodies moving. Either way, we’ve got your recipe for happy kids. Best of all, none of these require an electronic device or an app, so you don’t have to worry about too much screen time.
