Lockdown fun ideas: Get these 5 toys to keep your kids engaged and off the screen!

Ever since the pandemic hit, we’ve all navigated through new ways of living and new ways of being at home. And for the lucky ones who get to work from home, our lockdown routine sure has some perks! There’s no rush to reach somewhere. Whether it’s a meeting or a presentation we might need to give, we can do it all from the comfort of our home. We can work in PJ’s all day and spend all day with our kids, sometimes behaving like them too! 

But talking of kids, our young geniuses can sometimes make it all seem a bit crazier than it really is. As working parents, we need to juggle our regular work, along with the full time job of being a parent, along with house work, self care, and if we’re lucky enough some time for peace and quiet.

And when we come to talking about just parenthood, there’s so much to do! From getting them ready for their online classes and making them finish their homework, to keeping them occupied and healthy while they stay in, we all know it’s a highly demanding job with no fixed hours, or leaves and vacations. 

So now that the question of how to keep your kids occupied (in a good way) arises, as parents you also want to make sure whatever is occupying their mind is also nourishing it. 

And with ever growing screen time, it’s a scary world to try and navigate when it comes to what kind of content kids encounter, or might encounter during their time on the internet. 

So when you’re looking to get your kids off of the screens (Think: TV, phones, iPads, and whatever other gadgets might be around,) we have the perfect list of science toys and educational games to make lockdown super fun, engaging and even educational for young, curious minds stuck at home. 


Steam Warriors: Clash of Cyborgs 

 

Tired of sibling fights at home during your stay at home because of covid lockdown? We feel you! Redirect all the rage of your young geniuses into making and playing their own cyborg battlefield instead of battling with each other. 

 

The Rival Cyborgs - ICEBREAKER and SCORCHER - will need your young fighters' help in the battle for the ultimate steam warriors! Let them put it all together from scratch, and get them battle ready for the big clash. 

 

As the young ones build, assemble and play with this game kit, they will also learn the concepts, functionality and power of gears, elasticity and centrifugal force! 

 

With non toxic and easy to assemble parts and learning by games, your kids will enjoy themselves, prepare for fights that don’t get in the way of your peace of mind, and even learn some real world concepts that may be harder to grasp otherwise!
