During this current pandemic situation, most of us have been working from home. It must be a challenge for parents who rarely work from home, plus your children are at home too.

That is why those of you who work at home need to find ways to find fun things for your child to do at home. It is not an easy thing, especially when you need to finish work while children continue to seek your attention.

Therefore, from the point of view of a teacher, there are several strategies that you can do at home to distract your child from you. What are they?

Painting

Art projects can keep children busy for hours. Extend the activity by providing various objects that they can use for painting. They can try using leaves, cotton, or fingers.

When you provide this activity for children, make sure you can leave them with safe materials (kids friendly) and provide clear rules to ensure they are safe while playing. Keep taking the time to check on your child while painting.

Give a Book or Activity Book

When your children come to you while working, you can distract them by giving them an interesting reading book or just an activity book. Give them a book according to their age.

Washing Toys

This activity looks easy, but this is one activity that can help your child stay busy while you are working. You can prepare a bucket filled with water, a towel, and a box filled with children’s toys (electronic toys do not need to be included in this activity). Before this activity, tell your children the importance of keeping their toys clean, especially during this pandemic.

After that, you can let them clean their toys by placing the toys in water, cleaning it, and drying it using a towel. You can set an example first before they do.

Dressing Up

It can be done especially for girls. If you have a clothes box or cardboard, you can do this already. You can provide several boxes and fill them according to the category you want. For example, 1 cardboard for clothes, 1 cardboard for accessories, etc.

You can let children learn to explore the way they look. Maybe when doing this, there will be times when they will come to you to help them put on clothes or just show their looks. The most important thing is that you provide your child with activities while you are working.

Camping

If you want, you can prepare a tent by buying it or make your own tent for the child (using cloth and several other tools according to your creativity). Usually, tents are sold for 150 thousand rupiahs.

Inside the tent, prepare a few items for them to play with. You can also arrange pillows and blankets in the tent so that they are comfortable in the tent.

Besides, you can also prepare healthy snacks. Includes some books that can accompany your child in the tent. In this camp, your child will have time to play along with some of the items that you have provided.

In fact, children can even fall asleep alone after feeling tired playing in their tent. Keep track of your children playing in the tent while you work from home.
