Activities that Children and Parents Can Do Together
Plenty of time for play is essential to children, which is why it’s important for parents to play with their kids.
This creates an opportunity to spend quality time together. Here are some activities that parents and children can do together:
Do you love to cook?
If so, get your children involved. Even if they’re young, there are always small ways they can help out. Whether you ask them to grab ingredients out of the cupboard, help you mix, or help you measure, getting children involved in cooking is a great way to spend time together.
Not only is cooking a fun activity, but it also helps children learn science and math skills. They can learn how to count by helping you count out the ingredients. Also, they can learn about what will happen when you combine certain ingredients.
Complete an Act of Kindness Together
Children love to help others.
Whether it’s helping you around the house or doing a charitable deed, children love the feeling of making others happy. So, to foster this natural desire, volunteer for an event with your child!
Nothing improves the relationship between parents and children quite like helping other people together. Consider holding a bake sale to raise funds for a great cause or volunteer to help at a community event.
You could even spend an afternoon drawing pictures or making cards together to give to essential workers or residents of an elderly care facility.
Build a Fort Together
Grab all the pillows, blankets, and sheets in your home and to create a makeshift fort.
Use your Muffik Puzzle Floor tiles to place under the fort for extra padding. Have a movie marathon in the fort, read a book, or if you’re feeling extra spontaneous, spend the night in it! Kids will love putting the fort together because it allows them to feel creative.
Plus, having some time with their mom or dad in the fort will make them feel special.
