San Diego is going to see a lot of rain this week! With most schools still closed due to COVID-19, that means you need to find some things to do with your kids QUICK! Here are some great suggestions:
DIY projects using items around the home. There is no better way to keep the kids busy than a fun craft day, especially if you don’t have to go anywhere to get the supplies. Plus, you’ll have their creation to keep around to remember this moment in time. Here is a great list from Good Housekeeping with home DIY projects for the kids.
Let the kids cook! It’s never too early to get your kids started when it comes to cooking. They’ll feel accomplished knowing the cooked something the entire family can enjoy. Check out a list of easy meals your kids will love helping out from Pop Sugar below:
Find activities your kids can do independently. Let’s be honest, you may be at home with the kids and working yourself so you might not have as much time to dedicate to your kid’s activities. Here is a great list from Self-Sufficient Kids of things your kids can do independently.
Activities for your toddler. Your younger ones might need a little more attention on rainy days when they can’t get outside to burn off that energy. These great ideas from Hands On As We Grow include something you can do with all those leftover Amazon boxes from the holidays.
Don’t be afraid to let them play outside! Does your kid have some rainboots? A rain jacket? Then let them play! According to WebMD getting chilly or wet does not immediately mean your kid will get sick. So bundle them up and let them play! They’ll have memories that will last forever!
