One activity every kid loves to do is to draw. Hand a kid a piece of paper and some colour pencils or sketch pens and see how they doodle out their creativity for you. With this extra time on hands during home quarantine, help kids in bettering their drawing skills by registering for an online course. And what do kids love? Cartoons! Have them learn how to draw their favourite cartoons and maybe even get them inspired to make some original characters of their own!

#2 Learn a Language

Uno, one, satu, ek - four different languages of saying and writing 1! This can be the perfect time to either registering for a course that aids in perfecting a kid’s first language or take up the challenge of learning a completely different language from scratch! Online platforms such as Duolingo and Memrise are great for easy learning and understanding of a language using audio and visual tools.

#3 DIY Crafts

Keep your kids busy for hours by involving them in learning how to make do-it-yourself (DIY) crafts, guided by an online course. Simple and easily accessible objects lying around the house can end up being used in different ways to come up with the some genius and usable craft objects. In fact, this can be one of the fun family activities to do during the weekend! For this, you can check out YouTube channels or even look up free courses on Udemy and Skillshare.
