It’s been a little over two years since the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Singapore. Everyone has now adapted to wearing masks, the Safe Entry scannings, and the small groups gathering. That being said, the recent Chinese New Year holiday has ended with a huge surge in the number of confirmed cases within the community. As such, staying home may be a wiser option now, and here are some suggestions of what you can do even at home to keep your family and yourself entertained during the holidays or the weekends.
1. Art & Crafts
Get hands-on with your children at home! From helping to develop fine motor skills to encouraging a creative mindset and building resilience, art and crafts is a great opportunity to help children develop many life skills. In addition, it makes a good family bonding session as family members come together and communicate and work together to create a unique art piece. After the artwork is done, parents can also talk with their children about the artwork which can help to develop the child’s language skills.
Besides the simple art and crafts that can be done using household items, you can opt for something special at times for a different experience. There are many DIY Art and Craft kits around the market that allow you to learn a new craft and pick up a new skill. Some popular options are the terrarium kits, soap kits, and clay figurines making kit. Suitable for all ages, our kits come with all necessary materials and instruction guide, making it easy and convenient for families to interact and have fun together!
