Best Ways To Get Your Kids Learning At Home

February 22, 2021 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Kids Activities

The past year has changed our family lives so much, especially the way our kids are going to school and how they’re learning. Quarantine and other protective measures have increased our children’s presence indoors and shifted a good chunk of schooling hours to the home. This has meant screen-time battles, kiddo’s wandering attention during online-classes, and sometimes just good old-fashioned boredom.

At Kidzapp, where most of us are parents ourselves, we’ve been through all the learning bumps under the sun this quarantine and so with experience we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves. We’ve curated some of the best ways to keep your kiddos engaged and learning at home, with these great activity boxes that are fun, interesting, engaging, and will help them flex those brain muscles and keep them off the cartoons (although a healthy dose never hurt anyone!).

At Home Laboratory Boxes by My Discovery Lab
