Written By: Taylor Gorski Kids Activities Quarantine

The kiddos have been at home 24/7 for much longer than expected—you’ve exhausted every idea under the sun to keep them busy—but there’s still the rest of the summer to conquer. From yoga to picnicking, here are five ways to keep the youngins entertained this summer. 


1 | Go Camping…in Your Own Backyard 

Create an exciting and adventurous experience without leaving the house! Get crafty and set up a tent in the backyard, and fill it with all of the camping essentials. Don’t forget a campfire with s’mores supplies and engaging campfire stories. Dine outside like true happy campers and make it a night to remember! Sleeping under the stars doesn’t need to require a road trip this summer.


2 | Namaste All Day Kids Activities Quarantine

Yoga for children has been said to have a number of benefits. Practice yoga a couple times a week with your little ones, or have them follow along with an online class. They will get a little movement in for the day while trying something new—who knows, it might even become a new favorite activity! 


3 | Learn Something New Everyday

Scholastic is offering free online classes for kids from pre-K to ninth grade. Even though school isn’t in session, keep the kids learning and thinking all summer long. Weekly programs with new classes everyday are available. 


4 | Picnic at the Park Kids Activities Quarantine

Take a stroll to the park for a lunch or dinner time adventure. Bring a large blanket to sit on; pack sandwiches, snacks and even a few board games. Whether it’s superheroes, a fiesta or a dress-up party, get creative and create a theme for your picnic. Stay awhile and enjoy the sunshine! 


5 | Beat the Heat Kids Activities Quarantine

Stay cool this summer with family-fun water activities. Slip ‘n Slides, water balloons and mini pools are all fun options that will keep your kids active. Let the little ones get their energy out as they have some fun under the sun. Don’t forget the SPF!
