Suggestions for Fun (Offline) Activities for Kids of All Ages
Read together. This is a great time to enjoy reading together in the evenings.
Board games. Provide an added incentive—winner gets to stay up a half-hour later!
Try a new exercise or workout together. Netflix and Amazon Prime have some good videos.
Go for a hike or bike ride. Get outdoors to reap the benefits of some time spent in nature.
Fly a kite. Take advantage of the March breezes to get outside and fly a kite!
Plan a garden. It might be too cold yet to plant, but you could do some pre-seeding indoors.
