10 fun activities for your kids do while being stuck at home

Years from now, when our kids are remembering this crisis there’s a good chance all they will remember will be the little garden they planted, the cookies they baked, the makeshift camping tents… all the little things we do to keep them occupied while we stress are probably the best memories you will give them.
So cheer up mama, you are making a different kind of history.

Here are 10 fun activities you can do while being stuck at home.

1. Start a vegetable garden and get the kids to help.
While we are in quarantine, having a garden could be a way of passing the time. Planting a garden and growing your own food can be a fun healthy activity for the whole family, you get to breathe some fresh air, you get to absorb vitamins D from the sun, you get to exercise… 

During all this commotion, planting a garden is not only a  fun way to pass time at home, but it could also be a lifeline in difficult times. Who knows how long we will be dealing with this situation? Having a garden can make a difference between eating and not eating 👀
OK, that’s dark but either way, having a garden is really fun and good for you.
I have a series of post to help you start your garden 

2. Make homemade pizza with your kids
we can’t go out to eat, and we bored. Making Pizza at home is so much fun and a cool way to eat delicious pizza and still stay home. Kneading dough is therapeutic, perfect activities to keep kids busy and release some anxiety.
