At-Home Activities for Families

Today, many of our most beloved social institutions have closed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Though it’s crucial for families to practice social distancing by remaining at home as much as possible, that doesn’t mean that this time can’t be enjoyable. Use this newfound family time to enjoy engaging activities together. 

Read below to discover some fun ways to pass the time together below: 

 

Create something new

Hands-on activities are a necessary part of childhood development. Whether or not families are particularly “crafty” they can still participate in some fun arts and crafts projects. The fun part of these activities is bonding over the learning process. Gather the family around for an afternoon of projects ranging from simple pen and paper, to other miscellaneous items found laying around the house. Family YouTube channels like Art for Kids Hub and 5-Minute Crafts (Family) offer countless easy to follow tutorials that walk parents and kids through projects together. 

 

Check on the animals 

Though most zoos around the world have closed for the time being, families can still see what the animals are up by checking their preferred zoo’s website for animal live streams. The Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute has live webcams of their elephant, lion, panda and naked mole rat exhibits. While you eagerly anticipate your next family trip to the Saint Louis Zoo, visit their YouTube channel to watch the live stream of their penguins. Their animal care teams will share images and videos of their animals in order to #BringtheSTLZootoYou! Don’t forget to use the website’s “find your favorite animal” tool to learn all about your new favorite species.  

 

Explore the museum  

Showcasing preserved relics of the past, museums are the center of history, culture and education. Fortunately, families can still enjoy all museums have to offer without even having to leave the house. Many of these important institutions are offering virtual tours, like the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Explore different types of rockets and aircrafts and browse a variety of their aviation exhibits. If your family has a different interest, visit your favorite museum’s website to see what tours, games or other online resources they may offer.

 

These are just a few ideas of creative ways families can spend productive, engaging time together!
