3 Tips for Keeping Your Family Entertained during the Quarantine #Giveaway #ScreenFree #WinningMovesGames

As the weeks continue to pass at home, life has certainly slowed. Are you finding it more difficult to keep kids entertained? You aren't alone! Here are three easy tips to make it through these days...

1. Create a Visual Schedule
Routine and predictability are key. Routines help children feel safe, calm, and more self-sufficient. With a daily structure in place, expectations are clear and the constant need to 'entertain' your child lessens dramatically. Here's one of our favorite print-ready visual schedules for the home!

2. Provide Choices!
Kids want to feel like they have a say in the day as well. Allowing them to help choose meals, outside activities, walking routes, and more can help children feel a sense of control and reduce anxiety during this time.

3. Turn Off the Screens!
Add screen-free family playtime to your schedule. Playtime promotes language development, social skills, and family bonding! For school-age kids, board games are loads of fun and an easy way to practice academic and social skills. This week we're introducing two fantastic classics: Husker Du™ and BIG BOGGLE®. Hopefully, these games bring back some favorite childhood memories of your own. If you aren't familiar with them, check them out below and be sure to enter our giveaway!

Husker Du™
This classic picture matching memory game for young children has been updated with vibrant new images. The Husker Du game engages kids while they search for matching objects. Kids will learn memory skills, matching skills, turn taking, color, shape and object recognition. The player with the most pegs at the end of the game wins! Since the game is geared toward young children, the rules are simple and the game is easy to learn. Enjoy family fun and improve your memory at the same time! 2-4 Players, Ages: 4+
The world famous 3-minute word game! A family favorite for over 30 years! The new "Double Letter" cube makes it easier to form longer words. A 5x5 letter grid with more cubes, longer words and higher scores! We love Boggle as a fun way to practice spelling, reading, and printing skills. It's a fun game for the whole family because it spans across ages and it's perfect for home and travel; 2+ players, Ages 8+
