We are all indoor now due to the pandemic and need to keep our kids indoor as well. Here are some simple ideas to occupy them
The best way to reduce screen time in kids is to create a schedule and stick with it. Kids are creatures of habit if they know that they will get leisure screen time for half an hour in the afternoon, it will set their mind also at ease
Books are so much more
Set aside some time for reading to kids everyday. It could be just before bed or after lunch. But ensure you follow the routine everyday. Older kids can read by themselves
Book related activities. Every Book provides amazing opportunities to create your own book related activities.
For Kids aged below 5, a great activity would be to copy the illustrations in their drawing books.
For kids older than 5, you can ask kids to imagine their favourite character or scene and ask them illustrate it.
Book quizzes are amazing conversation builders. Kids can take time preparing the quiz and have a family quiz contest.

Kids need a lot of active time. You can plan your active time with kids. You can start the day with simple yoga movements that kids can do along with you. You can schedule indoor walks at the same time everyday along with kids
Baking / cooking time:
Kids love to copy parents. Having bake time or simple no fire cooking time can double up as an activity and interest them eating what they make
