Children entertaining

RABUN COUNTY, Ga – With children out of school for the foreseeable future, entertaining them might become a challenge for parents or guardians, hopefully, this article helps. Rabun County Schools decided to close for at least a week after because of the Coronavirus.

Those individuals responsible for children are advised to create a schedule in order to make the transition easier. However, don’t feel pressured to stick to do. Students obviously need to complete their COLD packets for the week, but structure will assist in keeping children on-track and focused.

Also, a child’s COLD packet might not take up an entire day, so it’s good to have options ready for that possibility.

Of course, it’s also important to keep children physically active when possible, if the day is nice, make time to play in the yard or create an activity space in the house.

As equally important is alone time, if everyone is stuck at home, it could quickly devolve into fight night. To prevent that from happening try to schedule a time for everyone to separate for an hour or two. This way children and parents or guardians can entertain themselves in the manner they see fit.
