How wonderful! You have more time with your children than you normally do because of the COVID 19 lockdown or quarantine. Have you run out of ideas yet?
Well, I have compiled a list of eight ideas for you to explore and be inspired.
1. Schedule screentime.
You don’t really need me to tell you it is not healthy to be on the screen all the time and the long term effects are certainly not known. So it is argued that scheduled screentime is the safest option.
2. Create an art space.
This can be part of your studio, a veranda, an outside area, or even simply the kitchen table. Make it a safe place where the child can make mistakes, make a mess, and be free to create with you.
3. Watch a Colour in Your Life episode.
With over 250 PG episodes filmed in seven countries you are sure to find one that will inspire you. A good place to start is here : WATCH NOW

7. Laugh with them.
Make art fun and playful and they will want to do it again and again!
8. Heal with them.
Hold them close and know that this will not last forever. Everything will be okay.
Where ever you are and whatever you are doing, know that Colour in Your Life is here for you and we send you our best wishes.
