As things took an unexpected turn, we need to refocus and re-organize our thoughts and actions. It can be tricky to juggle working from home and taking care of kids at the same time. During this crucial time, having a routine and setting goals is essential.

  1. Create a daily schedule for Salah, exercise, quiet / reading time, and more based on your family needs.
  2. Careful picking and selection of television and screen time can be beneficial to all ages, from preschoolers to teenagers. Educational cartoons and science programs can prove to be helpful for children.
  3. Websites such as https://classroommagazines.scholastic.com/support/learnathome.html offer free reading materials, and https://www.travelandleisure.com/attractions/museums-galleries/museums-with-virtual-tours offers free virtual tours you can take of 12 famous museums around the world.

  6. Keep some time aside for daily family time where you play board games, share an ayah, hadith, dua, or reflection (take turns talking and do not forget to include the young ones in the discussion). Help young kids memorize the Duas of protection from diseases and evil, as well as Istighfar.
  7. Ramadan is around the corner - Use this time to prepare kids for Ramadan, they can start memorizing Duas, read Quran, join online Quran classes  and begin preparations for Ramadan with parents such as meal prep, house cleaning, and decorations, etc.
  8. Being home provides an excellent opportunity for kids and adults to learn a new language such as Arabic or memorize the Quran.
  9. Help kids write notes to seniors in nursing homes. Writing friendly letters can lift their spirits and make their day brighter.
  10. Turn your living room into an obstacle course with cans or turn it into a sensory walk with masking tape.
