The novel Coronavirus, COVID-19 is already in Kuwait, and schools have shut down for two weeks. Two weeks with no school —and a viral outbreak— leaves you with few options for entertaining your kids.
Since they’ll be mainly staying home for this period — which is the safest option, 4Sale has some ideas to make this school shutdown entertaining and educational at the same time:
1. Play some video games
When it comes to indoor fun, video games are second to none. Perhaps it’s time to buy a new console for the kids? Or those recently-released video game titles they’ve been dying to get their hands on?
Check out the electronics section on 4Sale for some great deals on electronics and video games.
2. Get creative with crafts
Arts and crafts are another great idea to keep your kids busy during the school lockdown. You can introduce your kids to watercolors, get some marker and coloring books action going, or even give clay pottery a shot. The options are endless, and they’ll be having fun and learning something new at the same time.
Make sure your kids are old enough to leave unattended with art supplies though. If you don’t, you might find some impressive —and unwanted— wall art popping around the house!
3. Sell your old stuff
Schools shutting down for a couple of weeks is bad news for the parents as well. Your daily routine will be interrupted and things might get a little boring so, this one’s for you.
If you’re staying home anyway, why not put this time to good use? There is plenty of stuff lying around the house that you don’t need. So, why not sell them on 4Sale? You can free up some space, and make some money while you’re at it.
4. Hire a private tutor
Even when the schools are shut down, the education never stops. Spending two weeks at home might be exactly what your kids need to catch up on their lessons. If you don’t want your kids to fall behind their peers at schools, hiring a private tutor is a great idea.
With their professional help, your kids might even get ahead of their classmates. And if you want to hire a professional tutor, nowhere is better than 4Sale’s Teaching & Training category.
