Educational Activities for Children During Lockdowns
Life as a parent is challenging enough as it is without having our working lives turned upside down. School closures during the Lockdown have been both a major inconvenience and a source of worry and anxiety, too.
If you’re unavoidably home-schooling for an extended period of time, you’ll want some fun activities to do with the kids at home. You’ll also want to find a way to ease any anxieties and fears they have over having their worlds turned upside down.
We’re currently both juggling running our businesses and home-schooling a 9-year-old and a 7-year-old, so we know how it is!
We’re finding it tough to maintain routine and structure, keep them occupied and educated, and keep them happy and safe too, all while trying to run our businesses at the same time.
We’re putting together some activity books for our kids – full of fun and educational challenges – and we thought parents would appreciate us sharing these resources to use as a starting point to planning the week’s activities.
Drop your name and email address in the form below and we’ll send through your first activity e-book, followed by a weekly email giving ideas and activities for the days ahead.
If you’re looking for things to keep your kids busy, try these:
- Toys for newborns
- Toys for 6-12 month olds
- Toys for 1 year olds
- Educational children’s toys
- Pretend play
- Fun holiday craft ideas
- Composting for kids

Keep healthy and stay safe, everyone!
Father of two lovely and special children. I'm an engineer (electrical) by trade and have worked at many a blue chip organization in the past. From Ford Motor Company to Airbus to Wyeth Pharmaceuticals to the UK National Health Service I've had a pretty diverse working life. After completing my MBA I wanted to break away from the corporate 'cubicle' so I founded Stuff4Tots as a means of being at home for my family and creating a future for us all.
Now as CEO of Stuff4Tots I bring together my expertise as a parent, a husband and a professional to serve fellow parents providing useful and relevant information and products to new families.
