With the Covid-19 spreading, it is important to be indoor. Just think this is the best way to be having more fun time with your family. Think of it like a rainy day keeping your family cooped-up inside and doing fun activities together.
Don’t ever panic and try to be more productive as you can be with your family.
Fun times with family will never disappoint you.
Here are the tested-proven-and-effective ways to spend fun time together with your family!
MOVIE MARATHON with FAMILY
So watching movie is kind of common, but the word “MARATHON” is what makes it more exciting! This is where you know you are going to watch movies for hours (or even the whole day) munching popcorns and drinking a cup of hot chocolate.
If you have different taste of movie genre, then it is better if you allow each other choose what movie to watch – one after another.
Then with these, you will get to know one type of each other’s behavior (behaviors that are somehow influenced by movies you love to watch). Like if someone loves kdrama, then you might see more sweet personality behavior from that person.
This family time – movie marathon watching is indeed a quality time together.
So what’s better than
eating your favorite dish? I would say, nothing is better! Especially when you
cook it with your kids or partner. Say you love to bake pastries, then bake
one! There are specific things kids can learn from cooking with their mom and
dad – these are called the “Soft Skills”.
- Patiently following a recipe
- Specific ways of measuring
- Food preparation
- Basic Techniques in cooking
- Cleaning up the mess after
With these soft skills, kids can learn that mommy’s job is not easy and they will learn to appreciate the importance of meals.
I know, I know…Kids hate reading, even adults hate it too. But what’s more interesting is that reading is a part of self-improvement and there is no denial that through reading we learn lots of things.
We should obligate ourselves on this type of quality time together. Why it’s an obligation? Because this stimulates other skills – drawing & communication for example. And your kid needs your attention and help. They needed to be advised that reading books is one way to level up themselves.
If you are thinking you don’t have books and you can’t go outside to buy, baby you don’t have any excuses anymore. Ha Ha. There are lots of quality books online. See:
- Oxford Owl
- Storyline Online
- International Children’s Digital Library
- Open Library
- Amazon’s Free Kids Ebooks
- Barnes & Noble Free Nook Books for Kids
- Mrs. P’s Magic Library
Reading with your children help them get to know the right sound of letters and words. They learn the value of quality reading and stories. This will help them stimulate creativeness and curiosity.
