Here Are 3 Fun & Creative Things to do at Home with Your Kids

Do It Yourself
DIY 1

Although staying home right now is extremely important, it can also be challenging to adapt to a new routine. 

For the kids it’s no different!

While your little ones adapt to their new routine, it can be difficult for parents and carers to keep them entertained all the time. So, here are some ideas of fun things to do with your kids that not only they will love – you will too!

The first thing we suggest is seeing this situation as a great opportunity to connect with your family and loved ones. Often times we are so busy with our daily lives that family activities – especially creative ones – can end up on the back burner.

But what better way to keep your little ones entertained other than sparking up their creative flair?

1. PLANTING & POTTING

This is a super fun way to spend an afternoon with the kids! Succulents are a great way to start as they’re sturdy plants that are easy to take care of – ideal for children (just beware of spikes!).

All you need are a few pots to start with and from there you can let their creativity run wild. We suggest finding different sized shapes of stones and pebbles that the kids can paint beforehand, which will make their little pots much more fun and colourful.

Tip: if you don’t have any pots laying around, our empty Mask with Desert date and Mask with Mango butter jars look absolutely adorable as little planters!

2. COOKING

What smells better than a fresh cake being baked in the afternoon? Not many things (maybe some of our products, but it’s definitely a close call)! So why not try out a new recipe and leave most of the hands-on steps to the kids?

They will love being involved and it will make the cake taste just that little bit sweeter when they finally get to take a piece fresh out of the oven!

Tip: try making an upside-down banana cake. They contain fruit and can be sweetened with honey or maple syrup as opposed to white sugar, making it a little bit healthier as well!

3. GO CAMPING – in the living room!

Things can get really monotonous when you’re spending so much time at home, so why not plan a camping trip with the family to the living room? We love this idea! Pack as if you were actually going away: snacks, sandwiches, flashlights; and improvise a tent with chairs and sheets to the best of your ability.

Make a day of it! Get the kids to bring their pillows and blankets to be extra cosy, make some hot cocoa and enjoy the family time.

Tip: Don't forget to add some fairy lights!
