It appears that our kids will be cooped up at home for another few months as the pandemic threat continues to loom large over us. Moreover, with schools closing for Diwali, Christmas and New Year holidays, children will have more time on their hands. And, to be candid here, this simply means that they will drive you crazy!
One way to tackle this issue is to enrol your kids in online classes and activities. Another cool idea is to gift them activity subscription boxes which will keep them engaged for hours with non-screen activities. These subscription boxes have fun activity sheets, DIY project supplies, educational games, books and other interactive stuff targeted at physical, cognitive, language, social, gross motor and creative development of children. They are delivered at your doorstep every month, just like a magazine would.
