5 online activity ideas to make your kids learn something new this weekend
For the past few months, the pandemic has forced children to stay home, cutting down on their chances to play outside and interact with friends. This has led many parents to not only reschedule the timetables of their wards, but also ponder over the activities to keep kids occupied during this time.
A great way to keep kids busy and learning, especially on the weekends, is to make them join some form of online activity classes. Search for those activities that fascinate your child and spur her imagination. It could be making music, attending free photography classes by joining the ‘Today at Apple’ online programme, or learning a new language.
NASA at Home
Is your child inquisitive about space, planets, and aliens? For such kids the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has launched NASA at Home, a free website that is packed with a range of activities for kids, including e-books, podcasts and videos that help you understand the world beyond our planet. Head to the virtual and augmented reality tours section, where you can take a 360-degree, virtual tour of the Hubble Space Telescope mission operations centre, the International Space Station, and the Trappist-1 star system with NASA’s Exoplanet Excursions.
