How to Engage children ??

A life full of routine sounds very boring but when we are pushed out of our comfort zones we realize we can’t dance on our own tunes. This pandemic came like a burglar in our lives that stole away our routine, our freedom, our social life ,It also was major change for our children and most importantly it has confined our little explorers at our homes.

In the beginning of the lockdown, I found myself in a total chaos. School had closed down and I had the task of engaging both my children.

Besides engaging my children in activities like painting, reading, listening to rhymes, practicing yoga, jigsaw puzzles, now I have discovered  new ways ,where I could ensure that my children will continuously  learn and  be thoroughly engaged  without me

Here are the two techniques that worked like wonders for me and my children
