Many states have decided to close schools for a few weeks to a couple of months. With tons of school-age children at home, parents need ways to keep them engaged. Here are some fun activities that help relieve boredom while engaging their minds.

Coloring
Never underestimate the relaxing joy of coloring. This age-old activity has grown in popularity among adults in recent years. Choose books or sheets like basset hound coloring Navasota TX. The fun kids can have coloring any way they choose engages their creativity and keeps their hands busy for several minutes, multiple times a day.


Nature
Kids may spend a lot more time at home, but that doesn’t mean every activity must cost money. Nature is readyfor the enjoyment of kids. They can discover a new insect, plant or animal. They can take leaves from outside and create art projects. Long walks in greenbelts allow for social distancing and help kids expend energy. Plant some flowers and watch them grow from tiny seeds to plants to growing buds and flowers.


Games
Board games are a fun way to pass the time and grow closer as a family. There are games for kids of all ages. Bust out the traditional games of Monopoly and Battleship or learn a new board game that lasts for an hour. Kids can learn cooperation, strategy and good sportsmanship from playing games.


Crafts
You likely have everything you need at home to create an abundance of fun crafts. You can reuse toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, tissue boxes and paper bags to create all sorts of fun activities. You simply need markers, glue, string and any other art supplies you have on hand. Kids can have fun creating their own designs or you can work together to create something. All these activities engage children in fun ways that can help supplement their screen time.
