It’s been a struggle for us parents to keeps our kids pre-occupied and “not bored”. Zeeka would always come up to me and say “I’m bored”, and what I do is automatically give her the iPad. It’s not a good thing to have our kids on their gadgets 24/7, since they need to move around, too. They have other “type of intelligence” that need to be practiced and enhanced.
So in this article, I’ll be sharing some of the other cool stuff that I saw that you can do with your kids.
Before that though, check out this video. We’re sharing with you some of the activities that Zeeka does at home.

One of the activities that you can do with your kids at home is Visual Journaling. I first saw this activity on my Skillshare account. Zeeka watched with me, and she isn’t really that interested with the things that I watch online. I was pretty surprised that she stayed on and watched with me.
Visual journaling is basically using drawing to express your emotions, interests, dislikes, etc. As parents, we can guide them though the exercise like ask them to draw things that they like, draw the feelings that they feel when they’re inside the house, etc. It helps us understand their emotions, too, during these times.
Bring Me Game or Scavenger Hunt Game
Kids love to love to play this. A fun twist that you can do to get to know your child better is to have them bring things that make them feel happy, or things that they think is funny. For them to familiarize themselves with color, you can ask them to bring an item with a specific color.
Riddles or “Who Knows Me Best” During Mealtime
Another one of the activities that you can do with your kids at home (and sometimes with the entire family) are riddles and the “Who knows me best” game. It’s hard for kids to stay at the dining table during mealtime. What keeps Zeeka entertained is when we do some sort of activity. Yesterday, daddy EJ was throwing some riddles that she needed to solve.
Other times, we play “Who Knows Me Best”. One of us asks a question about himself or herself, then the other members of the family need to guess the answer.
Here are other indoor activities that I did with Zeeka:
