Wow, I thought keeping kids entertained during regular school holidays was hard!
The restrictions we are experiencing these school holidays as a result of Covid-19 are adding a whole new dimension to fighting school holiday boredom…
For our family, adding some routine into our day has helped to get us through the week. These pockets of activity have given the kids something to look forward to, breaking up the long days at home.
One of our daily activities is the ‘Board Game Challenge’ (anyone who has kids that watch The Norris Nuts on YouTube will understand kids’ current obsession with challenges). We have committed to playing a different board game each day of the school holidays. I don’t know about you, but our games cupboard has not had a clean out in years. So, at the end of each game we rate the game and decide whether we will put it back in the cupboard to play again another day or add it to the donate box so that we can pass it on for others to enjoy.
We would love to see any board game success stories you have, feel free to share them with us on our Facebook page or by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share with everyone :) Enjoy!
