Schools are closed, sport clubs can’t be visited, and it is not encouraged to go to the parcs and playgrounds, what to do!? We believe that this is the moment to enjoy some actual, quality family time. We are sharing five ideas on what to do with kids in your own home, hotel inspired. Let’s make it suite!
1. Cooking with kids
Cooking boring? Not at all! Kids are easily entertained, and cooking is a good way to do so. To make the cooking experience even better, we shared a recipe that your little ones, and yourself, will love for sure; Pause Pancakes. Say ‘pancakes’ once and your kids will run towards the kitchen, getting ready to be a real chef. Extra tip: create a chef’s hat for your kids, for example out of old newspapers. Oh, and be aware: the kitchen is going to be a mess! Sorry not sorry.
2. Create your own Kids Treasure Hunt
Who doesn’t love to discover, right? What about creating your own Kids Treasure Hunt! Make an easy version for the younger ones with your own-drawn map of the house where a cross shows the location of the hidden treasure. Or design a more advanced hunt: hide letters on a few places around the house. Together, the letters will make a word that is the location of the hidden treasure. Check out Pulitzer’s Kids Treasure Hunt for inspiration.
3. Family workout
At Pulitzer, we believe that exercising makes you feel better. And, especially since you are spending most of your time at home, a good workout will get you energized. So, why not exercise together! Working out with your whole family is becoming a hot topic more and more. We’ve collected three of our favorite family workouts, for you and your kids to do at home. Put on your sporty outfit, create space in the living room and get ready to sweat!
4. Family’s Got Talent
Do you have a secret talent? Now is the time to take the stage and shine! Dancing, singing, painting or comedy, set up a talent show for the whole family. Spend a little bit of time on the preparations, dress up and decide on who will be the host. Get creative and make a stage out of something you can find in the house: wood, blankets or even the sofa. Laughter guaranteed!
5. Play ‘hotelier’
Remember the time you played ‘teacher’ or ‘doctor’ when you were little? Think outside the box and play ‘hotelier’! Let your fantasy lead the way. You, as parents, can be the guests, your kids the employees. Decide on a name of the hotel, create a check-in desk and let your kids show the way to your rooms. Put on your bathrobes, order room service and go for a relaxing spa moment. If that isn’t the suite life… enjoy!
