7 Days of At-Home Play

March 19, 2020

As we all settle in for this period of social distancing, we can expect extra time at home with our little ones. This can be a stressful time for everyone; it’s okay to do what you can. Luckily, there are lots of child-friendly activities you can set up using objects you already have around your home!

Check out these seven play ideas to keep your children active, busy, and learning during these uncharted times.

Shred paper for sensory play! Don’t have a shredder? Try ripping and scrunching paper instead.
Make your own sensory bags using water or shaving cream.
Collect different odds and ends, such as bowls, spatulas, spoons, and sponges from around the house to play with and explore.
Set up simple obstacles around your home to crawl under, walk over, and jump through!
Use objects big and small to practice threading! Buttons, paper towel rolls, and cut up pool noodles are all great for threading.
All you need is a box and a ball to create this game! Practice maneuvering the box to get a ball through the hole!
Use cotton balls, tongs, scoops and bowls for sensory play.
