Schools have closed after examination and parents are working from home. This lockdown is giving some major challenges to all of us by locking us all in our houses trying to think of innovative ideas to keep ourselves busy. Given that social distancing and staying at home is the need of the hour, parents are scratching their heads to figure out how to do home schooling, household chores, office work and last but not the least, how to engage kids in a meaningful manner.
Here are few creative décor ideas to have some fun with your kids while working from home.
Go bold with colour blocking
Colour blocking is a fun and easy way to get started on a paint project with your child. We recommend keeping it simple by isolating a portion of your wall for this. For instance, divide a shared bedroom for your kids into half and paint each half of the wall a different colour. Using bright, contrasting shades such as yellow and pink for this creates a cheerful and vibrant environment for the kids. The activity becomes fun for kids also because it involves a lot of mess and creativity.
Bring out that big Lego box
Most of the times when kids ask parents to play with them, they generally get disappointment. But this is the time to make up for those ignored opportunities. Take that big Lego box out and get creative with your kids. Lego is not only about playing with kids, it is also very therapeutic for elders.
Get creative and try DIYs
Since you have a lot of time and little opportunities to buy things, resort to DIY activities. Do-it-yourself activities are exciting for kids because they get to create something new and useful. Surf through those videos you have been liking and saving on your social media accounts and choose the ones best for your house.
Brighten up your work-from-home space
This activity is fun. Try painting shelves or any small furniture in a bright shade to bring a space to life. This is an easy way to add accent colours throughout the space and make a space look like an artistic office. This is a subtle way to make children understand the work from home concept.
