5 Ways to Entertain Your Kids at Home


If you’re spending more time indoors lately, you may be needing some inspiration on how to keep your kids entertained without them climbing the walls… or driving you crazy! Here are five fantastic ways to keep your children happy while at home.


1.      Bake Away

Baking cookies is a sure way to get the kids involved in the kitchen. They can help you to measure out the ingredients or read out the steps in a baking recipe.


Why not get your kids to make and decorate their own cookies according to a theme? From Valentine’s Day to Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, there are plenty of possibilities. If this doesn’t tickle their fancy, they can pick their own cartoon characters or superheroes to shape from decadent cookie dough.


2.      Cook Up a Storm

Cooking ideas are a plenty—especially in the recipes section of our website. If you’re looking for some extra hands with meal preparation, your kids can build their own burgers or pizzas. With so many toppings to choose from, let their imaginations run wild. The bonus is a tasty meal the whole family can enjoy together around the table.

Even better, hold your very own family version of a ‘mini’ MasterChef competition. With your kids as the participants and you as the judge, you can hold different rounds in which your junior chefs can create their culinary masterpieces of a delectable gourmet three course meal.


3.      Cool Down with Ice Cream or Warm Up with Cocoa

On a hot day your kids can learn how to make ice cream or popsicles. They can pick their best loved flavours and enjoy these deliciously sweet & refreshing treats.


In the winter weather what better way to warm up than with a cup of hot chocolate? Topped with marshmallows, this is a sure win! Sipped in front of the fireplace or while watching a family favourite film, this is what memories are made of.


4.      Create Your Own Science Project

There’s plenty more fun to be had in the kitchen. If you’re feeling really crafty and creative, combine food & household bits & bobs with science. The result is endless hours of amusement while your kids learn a new thing or two along the way.


There are so many DIY home science projects to try:

  • A DIY baking soda volcano
  • A tornado in a bottle
  • How about making alien slime or play dough?


You’ll be thankful for the countless hours in which to pass away the time and without knowing it, your children get the benefit of something new AND educational.


5.      Grocery Shop Online

Gourmet grocery shopping can be easily done from the comfort of your own home. The added benefit? Fresh goods can be delivered straight to your door. You’ll save on time, fuel, and won’t need to venture outdoors unnecessarily. Let your kids help you pick their favourite ingredients so they can be part of the process and be excited when that delivery comes.


If these suggestions have whet your appetite, get the finest ingredients you need from our online grocery store. Effortlessly keep your kids amused in the kitchen, starting today!
