This eBook is what you’ve been waiting for! Comprised of over 200 at home activities for kids, you can keep your little ones busy for days with fresh, new ideas. You’ll never hear “I’m bored” again (and you’ll get some time to yourself in the deal, too)!
Here it is, gang! After an overwhelming response to my activity schedule for kids, and a request for more, I doubled down and created an eBook just for you. Twice as many activities, new schedule ideas, tips for staying sane while you’re home with the kids, and a whole bunch more. It’s all packed into the At Home Activities for Kids eBook!
At Home activities for Kids
Finding yourself home all day with your kids is a daunting proposition in the best of circumstances, for the best of parents. There’s no denying that being a stay at home parent is a tough gig. We work from home, and now with two kids (ages 3 and 5) home with us all day, we were really in need of some structure and some fresh ideas.
Enter this eBook.
I collected all of my best ideas (some new and some old), and compiled them for you, here. This is meant to be a resource – a library, of sorts. Something that you can come to when you’re fresh out of ideas but the kids are hungry for more. Something that you feel like you always have in your back pocket.
What’s In It?
Here’s what you’ll find in At Home Activities for Kids.
- 20 themed days, each with 8 on-theme activity ideas in four categories (letters, numbers, crafts, and sensory)
- Educational and/or entertainment TV show recommendations that correspond to the day’s theme
- 2 structured daily schedule options
- 1 create-your-own-schedule template
- 1 daily checklist template
- Over 30 ideas for outdoor play
- Over a dozen ideas for movement or focus-based play
- Neighborhood outreach activities
- Activity ideas for when all else fails
- Actionable tips for staying sane in an at-home-parent routine
- A linked materials list
Who is it for?
The activities, projects, and ideas in the eBook are best suited for kids age 2-7. Each idea is a variation on activities that I have done with my own kids. Each idea is also adjustable, so that you can make it suit your family’s needs.
General concepts include:
- letter repetition, basic reading, basic writing
- number recognition + writing, introduction to elementary math ideas
- fine motor skills (cutting, glueing, coloring)
- color recognition and use
- arts + crafts
- sensory play, interacting with our surroundings
- independent play
How Do I Use It?
That’s up to you! If you like structure, you can follow one of the included schedules and plug in the various activities from the themed days. Used in that way, you’ll have over four weeks worth of at-home activity ideas.
If you like to be more flexible, then you can pick and choose the activities that your kids would enjoy and sprinkle them throughout your days. In this way, it can be like a library full of things that you’ve never tried! You could even make a game out of it, and have your kids roll dice or close their eyes and point to an activity on one of the pages.
No matter how you use it, it will keep your days fresh and interesting — and keep your kiddos engaged.
It’ll also help create some time for you, while your kids are busy working on some new activities.
