Thank you for sharing some of your favorite kid-directed activities this week! Sidewalk chalk, sensory bins, Legos, puzzles and games are proving to be life-savers while we are at home. Here are some of your ideas to keep busy—and a few fun photos, too.


I put water and some small dinosaurs into a medium size plastic container and froze it in the freezer. Then my daughter had a “fossil hunt” with the ice and a wooden hammer. – Skyra


“Lego….. Kid life is Lego.” – Helene


“Without parents is kind of relative in our house because our son is only 10 months, but he loves to press buttons on his keyboard right now!” – Jenny


“My son loves dressing up as Mario, and my daughter dresses up as Princess. I gave them tennis rackets and a balloon was their ball . . . they played for hours outside and I allowed it in my living room on rainy days.” – Yuliya


“Our kiddo loves making music so we set him up with three different pots and bowls upside down  and he drums away with wooden spoons like he’s putting on a concert!” – Meagan


“Garbage crafts, basically pull out a bunch of recyclables, paint, glue and other random craft supplies and let the kids create to their hearts content. Makes a mess but occupies them for hours.” – Elena


“My son, Sylvain, age 7, made a modeling clay diorama. It is of Banana man, Happy apple boy, Creepy Carrot, and Broccoli Tree man.”

“Color scavenger hunt around the neighborhood. This was 2 hours of fun walking around.” – Sydney
