Are you looking for some ideas on how to create a unique and educational family night during this pandemic? Here are 4 that rose to the top in my search for some out-of-the-box ways to learn and have fun as a family while staying at home.
#1 – Learn to Cook Together
American’s Test Kitchen – Kitchen Classroom
This website is offering cooking classes plus more that the entire family can use to learn recipes and more kitchen and cooking skills. You can pick and choose from their already published content or use the new content they publish each week which includes: new recipes, experiments, hands-on activities, quizzes, and even larger projects are published.
#2 – Take a Virtual Field Trip Together
Free Homeschool Deals – 3 Month Virtual Field Trip Calendar
49 curated virtual field tips your family can take either following the days given on the calendar or as you pick and choose based on your family’s interests.
#3 – Explore New Worlds Together
Minecraft – Minecraft Educational Content
Free new worlds including lessons, building challenges, puzzles and more based on history, science, and more subject areas. Your kids won’t even know they are learning and you can join them in creating and exploring this material. Downloads are free through June 30, 2020.
#4 – Create and Play a Board Game Together
Make Use Of – 9 Free Printable Board Games
Here is an interesting family activity that will get you away from the screen – make your own board game and then play it. Just print out the free downloads and add some simple “extras” from your junk drawer or other games you already have in your house.
