Kids are plenty busy with school, but eventually the classes will drop off into the ambiguity of a quarantine summertime. Maintaining structure and “student” status throughout the downtime will help your child return to the daily grind with ease in September.
Use this time productively to demonstrate the kindness, charity, and thoughtfulness you want your kids to assimilate. Joining together in a service project bonds the family closer together and can help kids with anxiety and boredom as well.
April is National Autism Awareness Month with the theme of “Celebrating our Differences.” The upending of routines, support services, and positive outlets during these unprecedented times is acutely felt by your child right now.
A breath of fresh air is a precious gift. With quarantine measures still in effect, there has never been a better time to take a nature walk with your family. Be sure to travel with just the members of your immediate household (now is not the time for a play date meet up!) and stay at least six feet away from others.
World Storytelling Day is celebrated on the spring equinox and during the following week. Storytelling has played an integral role in passing on cultural knowledge, beliefs, and traditions from one generation to the next. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate World Storytelling Day, consider one of these activities.
