As cities and towns of the nation confront an increasing number of Covid-19 cases, many individuals are deciding to embrace & Social Distancing’ a term that has become the key phrase over the days. This term just alludes to keeping away from close contact with others so as to abstain from having chances of catching the infection yourself and to abstain from passing it on.

Social Distancing, right now is the most important consideration that can help in controlling this outbreak as suggested by the government authority as well as medical professionals. Whilst this might be the ideal thing to do, it might be contradictory to our style of living and thus, be very challenging to achieve. A lot of people out there are unsure about what to do with the ample amount of free time they are suddenly blasted with. What do they do indoors if they are not allowed to step out? How do they make their time worthwhile for themselves as well as their kids? We’ve listed a few activities parents and children can do together and make good use of their time and energy when everyone is stuck at home.

Pick up an instrument, get going with some online training!

It is important that you be moving or doing something during such times. Learning an instrument is good for the brain too. The Internet makes it possible to access knowledge and skills with a few clicks. You can find the ideal music teacher for your instrument, skill level, genre, and more. This also allows you to get access to a lot of online resources like links to sheet music, tablature, lyrics. Furtados School of Music have begun their online classes that is a highly interactive Musical Home Experience where students can learn in the safety and comfort of their homes.

Pick the book, you never had time to read

There will be a lot of you who will have a to-be-read pile of books that you never got the time to complete. This is the time to get those books off the rack and read them! Be ambitious about it and finish that book! We would have shared a list of books for you to read, but we leave that choice to you!

Watch Documentaries

There is a whole ocean of options out there that are worthy of your time and attention. You can just login into any of the streaming applications. If you happen to opt out of documentaries, we still have you covered! Try watching some of the best shows, series or movies. There are a lot of podcasts to choose from too.

Bring out your inner artist. Do that DIY!

What sounds more amusing than doing some fun DIY activities with your child? It’s easy! Just grab the crayons, glue, glitter, and paint and let their creativity shine. You could make a paper bead necklace, bookmarks, puppets, paper race cars or anything that your child would love! 

That is all from our side! We hope these activities can make your self-distancing period more fun, if not then at least tolerable.
