We all know that well-being is very important especially during these times.
Here are some ideas to help you during the next few weeks at home. If you choose to do any of these activities please let me know how they went.
1. Make a boredom jar. Ask your children what their favourite indoor activities are and use them to make a lucky dip or boredom jar. Write their ideas down on strips of paper and keep them in any container you’ve got, such as a bag, bowl, jar or hat. In moments of boredom or struggle, invite them to choose something they know they enjoy doing. Depending on their age, activities could include crafting, baking or cooking, watching their favourite film or playing a video or board game with you. This may be useful after you have done some Maths or English
2. Keep a daily routine going as much as possible, while also allowing for the fact that things will be different and trying not to give yourself a hard time about this. Keep a time frame for each activity. Each school task should be no longer than one hour. This is the set time we have for the lessons while in school.
3. Take some time for exercise. Although you can't go out there are some things you can try at home even in a small space. Maybe an obstacle or assault course (be careful of the best china) or if you don't have space for that search YouTube for Just Dance videos. There are lots of different ones you can choose. A couple of my favourites are Super Mario and Ghostbusters! There are also lots of Yoga videos on YouTube including Cosmic Yoga and Joe Wicks' 'PE with Joe' videos are still available on his channel.
4. Learn how to do something new. Maybe learn to cook a new meal or sew a button. Tie your shoelaces or plait your hair!
