Hi! This is Carter and Vanessa, and we wrote this post for our mom’s blog (we even took all the pictures!). Carter is 11, and Vanessa is 9.
We’ve been stuck inside for a while now, quarantined, and we know you are too. There are many things we do when we’re stuck inside with nothing to do, and we’d like to share them with you in our Kids Quarantine Bucket List!
Quarantine Bucket List for Kids
We decided to make a list of things we can do when we’re getting bored of being stuck inside all day. We usually like to play make-believe games and do artsy stuff, but you’ll find a variety of activities on our list.
We came up with 30 ideas, so try one each day and before you know it, the quarantine might be over!
Here’s our list!
1. Create a trivia contest with questions about your family
2. Invent new superheroes and dress up and be them
3. Draw a picture for someone else
4. Try origami (check Youtube for tutorials!)
5. Use a phone to film a short movie
6. Build with blocks/LEGOs
7. Write a journal entry

9. Take a bubble bath
Vanessa: “Nothing like a good ol’ bubble bath.”
10. Give people rides in a spinny chair
11. Write a story
