On October 12, Children’s Day is celebrated and, for this reason, we at Ao Cubo digital real estate agency will tell us what to do with the children at home during this period of isolation due to the pandemic. If you have children or siblings who are out of school and spend the whole day at home, then use our tips to make this date a very special day.

What to do with children at home?

Many schools are closed and many places with attractions for children too, so how to enjoy Children’s Day in a fun way? We’ll help you with tips on what to do with kids at home below!

1. Theme day

A great way to make Children’s Day special at home is to create a different theme for that day, such as Pajama Day, Toy Day or Profession Day.

If you choose Pajama Day, then stay late at night with your child wearing pajamas, watch movies, eat popcorn, make brigadeiros, invent games and have the traditional pillow fight, but without spoiling them, of course (laughs).

Toy Day, on the other hand, is when your child chooses a favorite toy and spends the entire day with it, from breakfast, when taking a shower and even at dinner. A fun way to play with his favorite toy.

And Profession Day is one that your child will choose the professions he likes the most and will play with you as if he were that professional, if he chooses to be the dentist, then be his patient!

2. Playing with the decor

On this Children’s Day, children can play with the decoration of the house, especially the bedroom or play area they have.

Then ask your child to use their imagination to create pictures with designs made by him to hang on the walls, as well as objects or toys that he would like to use in the decoration of the room.

This is a great way to make your child participate in the decoration of his room and still leave objects more organized, especially toys that are usually scattered around the house.

If you have any furniture or walls that need painting, then it’s a great way to do an activity together and still tidy up the house to look prettier.

3. Online group play

If on Children’s Day, your child feels like playing with other children, then you can use the digital resources available to make your child have fun with friends or cousins.

Make a video call with your child’s friends and ask them to play games that are possible to do from a distance, such as mime that only needs a role play in front of the camera for friends to find out what your child is imitating. .

Children who already know how to write and are a little older can play Stop, that game that draws a letter and all participants need to fill in the topics with words that start with the drawn letter.

4. Manual workshops

This type of game stimulates children’s creativity and can also be done with other colleagues in a video call, as each one can have material at home to create something new.

It can be something as simple as a painting that only needs paper and pencil or a collage that can be made from clippings from old magazines, but if you want to innovate, then think about something like clay dough to create sculptures or the traditional modeling clay.

It’s also nice to insert recyclable materials to show this important cause to kids.

5. Puppet Theater

How about buying puppets or even using socks to make a theater for your kids and friends online. You can use your imagination to create fun, funny and thoughtful stories to entertain your kids.

This type of game encourages the playful world that children need to have contact to be distracted and entertained with simple, but educating things.

The interesting thing is to start with the parents as protagonists in the stories, but then include the children in the game or change roles in each round.

6. Picnic on the porch or backyard

If you can’t take the kids for a picnic in the park, then bring the picnic indoors, but precisely to the balcony of the apartment or backyard.

Kids love this kind of game to change their indoor setting, so take advantage of the outdoor spaces to create this picnic experience for the kids.

It will only be necessary to spread a towel on the floor, everyone will sit on it and eat the goodies that must be prepared beforehand, such as bread, yogurt, sweets, biscuits and other delicacies.

7. Hands on

We have already talked about recipes to make at home with the family in social isolation, so there will be no lack of inspiration to create delicious and easy dishes with the children in the kitchen.

The cool thing is to include them in hands-on activities, such as kneading the pizza dough, stirring the cake dough or shaping the cookies with their hands to convey the feeling of real participation in preparing the recipe.

Activities that involve an oven or contact with the stove’s mouth are the responsibility of the parents to avoid burn accidents with the children.

8. Reading corner

How about each one choosing a book to read a chapter to everyone? Buy new books or use unread ones for that special day and to encourage children to enjoy reading.

The difference can be in the choices of each character for each one who is participating in the reading club , so indicate who will be each character and use the role play during the reading.
