Fun Things to Do with Kids at Home

Being home with the family is a wonderful thing, but when you’re stuck inside for long stretches of time, boredom can start to set in fast! Luckily, there are plenty of fun things to do with kids at home that can brighten up the household. Create brand new memories without ever leaving your living room in Lanthrop with some of our favorite activities.

Time Capsules

Spending so much time indoors can make anyone a little stir crazy, so creating a time capsule can be a great way to think ahead to brighter days. Grab a spare box or bag to store all the items – you can even let the kids decorate it! Then bring the family together to talk about hopes and plans for the future. Do you want to visit a beach or camp in the wilderness? Encourage your little ones to draw pictures, write letters, and even include small items. Then pick a date in the future and stash your time capsule away!

Virtual Sightseeing

The internet is a fantastic resource for Stockton families, and you might be surprised by just how many cool places you can visit without leaving the Tracy area. Check out some of our favorite online sightseeing destinations:

  • Travel to the Louvre in France and take virtual tours of Egyptian antiquities, Medieval moats, and the Petite Galerie art exhibits.
  • Get a close look at Yellowstone Park attractions like Fort Yellowstone, Fountain Paint Pot, Mammoth Hot Springs, and more.
  • Discover cool animals like the belugas at the Georgia Aquarium or penguins at the San Diego zoo with live webcam footage.

DIY Drive-In Movie Theater

Manteca parents know that streaming movies and television shows is one of the most beloved activities for kids at home, but why not have a little extra fun with your time inside? If you have empty cardboard boxes and some crafting supplies, invite the kids to unleash their creativity and design a personalized box car. When everything is ready to go, your kids can drive up to the big screen and enjoy the latest blockbuster in a brand new car!
