Edit Ltd is an IT solutions provider to Schools and Business. We have had to close our office due to Covid-19. We are now working remotely from home in isolation and during this difficult time we wanted to provide some tips to our staff and the public on how to spend some quality time with your children.
Our top 5 activities to help you through this difficult time:
1. Cooking is one of the most valuable skills you can teach a child, right alongside school academics and sports. Try out some of these great easy BBC recipes in the kitchen with your little ones https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/kids-cooking
2. After all, your family story is the story that leads to you. This is a perfect opportunity to build your own family tree whilst involving your children to learn more about your family history.
3.Create your own mini golf course using toys and cardboard boxes. We had a go by using pots and pans which worked brilliantly.
4. Encourage outdoor activity and exercise. If you have access to a garden, encourage a little jog around. If you have no access to a garden, try some home Yoga techniques involving the children. Dance is also proven to be a great form of exercise so maybe a dance party at a specific time a day would be great.
5. Involve the children in your hobbies. If you enjoy playing instruments or writing music, allow the children to help you write some quirky music which you can sing along too. Now that we have all the time in isolation, these fun activities would surely make some great home videos.
