4 Fun Things to do with Kids at Home

4 Fun Things to do with Kids at Home


If you’re stuck in quarantine with some rascals and you’re chasing down fun things to do with kids at home, we salute you. You are the hero of these quarantine times, and your patience and understanding is a virtue akin to the saints of yore. That’s why we’re here to help. Looking for kids activities during the age of social distancing doesn’t have to be a chore, and although home-schooling is essential, it’s also important to find indoor activities for kids that help break up the day. 

By finding kids activities that keep their brain sharp and avoid just lounging in front of the telly, you’ll not only be able to keep them engaged with their schoolwork, but have a range of indoor family activities to keep in your back pocket, next time bad weather puts a dent in your plans. Here at ClassBento, we’ve compiled a few of our top kid’s activities for you and the little ones to ensure they’re kept busy, and you win ultimate parenting brownie points. 

Pottery kit: Ceramic painting for kids and teens

We’re going to go ahead and assume you don’t have a working industrial pottery kiln in your house. If you do, your kids activities practically organise themselves. Just because you don’t have one, however, doesn’t mean you have to neglect the ceramic arts when chasing down your indoor activities for kids. 

One of our most popular online classes for kids, your little ones will be able to select from a range of ceramics before they’re sent straight to your door in one of our craft boxes, complete with a range of paints and paintbrushes! With the accompanying live stream, you and the little ones will be shown how to make the most of your equipment with some crucial painting tips and tricks to ensure that the paints don’t run out before their imaginations! 

Included in the price, of course, is the firing of their new design. This is only available for Sydney residents, however. But if you do live in Sydney. This is one of the best kids activities when it comes to creative freedom and value for money. 

Kids craft box: Slime making for kids

Online classes for kids rarely come with instructions on how to make slime. Most of the time, you’ll choose fun indoor activities for kids to sink their teeth into and the younger ones will just find a way to make slime. This workshop, however, is purpose-built to ensure that the slime your kids make is fun, colourful and most of all, hygienic. 

One of the more affordable kids activities ClassBento has available, our slime making workshop is all about letting the little ones have as much fun as possible. Your kids will learn how to make a fluffy slime and a clear slime out of the ingredients in the craft box and a few household essentials. So get the shaving cream ready and be prepared for some messy fun, because slime making works wonders as one of the top kid’s activities to break up the monotony of home-schooling. 

Learn Tik Tok dances

Staying fit and active is an important part of life, and kids activities that promote that can help a child get into good habits when it comes to thinking about their fitness. It’s got to be fun, though! Professional dance Mitchell Yee is running some of the best things to do indoors with kids in the form of exciting and engaging virtual dance classes! Perfect for any age, learning famous TikTok dances are probably already on your child’s to-do list, and this easy and affordable class can fast-track it! 

One of the few kids activities that offer one-on-one service, Yee can show the kids how to get active and dance up a storm no matter how many are interested. You can even join in and learn the dances with your kids! One of the most affordable indoor things to do with kids available, this one will keep them active without having to leave the house. Mitchell also offers K-pop virtual dance classes which you can find here. 

Virtual circus for kids

As far as kids activities go, a visit to the circus is about as retro as it gets. It can also be a bit of an ethical dilemma, but our new Virtual Circus For Kids brings the circus to them! Similar to the virtual dance class, these kids activities are designed to keep your children fit and healthy, while engaging new skills. 

Over eight consecutive weeks, your little ones will learn some circus performance essentials, such as how to master the hula hoop and how to juggle like a seasoned circus pro. Similar to a small season of kids sport, these online classes for kids will develop their motor skills, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem, all while giving them a creative outlet for all the pent-up energy quarantine has certainly brought on. One of the best rainy day activities for kids, this is an ideal choice if you’re looking for kids activities that are ongoing and simple to organise. 

No matter what kids activities you choose to keep the little ones busy during school holidays and/or quarantine, you rest easy knowing that all of our kid’s instructors have years of experience working with children and are highly capable in providing a safe and inclusive environment for them to artistically express themselves. With our new LiveBox feature, that expertise can be experienced without ever having to leave the house. With all the materials sent directly to your door, and one of our teachers on the accompanying live stream, your search for kids activities and indoor family activities has never been easier.
