Screen-Free Ways To Keep Kids Entertained During Quarantine

 BLOG-POST

As parents, we know how equally wonderful and challenging this time at home with children can be.  We have put together some toy recommendations that bring smiles, delight and offer superb play value in lieu of screen-time.

 

  1. Chalk and bubbles. You may have seen the latest social media trend, ‘Chalk Your Walk’, but families across the country are decorating their driveways or sidewalks with inspirational and encouraging messages etched in chalk.  Bubbles always add a fun element to playing outdoors as well!  Find your local store to check inventory near you.

  2. Puzzles. Now is the perfect time to gift your friends, family or neighbors with a puzzle and race to see which family finishes first!  Puzzles are selling out very quickly.  Find your local store to check inventory near you.

  3. Arts & Crafts.  If you are homeschooling your children right now, ‘Art’ is a subject that you’ll want to cover and that they’ll enjoy!  Learning Express Toys & Gifts is offering 25% off our favorite craft brands for the entire month of April.  Click here to shop our selection.

  4. Sticker Books. Melissa & Doug's giant sticker pads come with over 100 reusable stickers that will provide loads of entertainment for toddlers. For older kids who know their numbers, opt for something that requires a little more concentration, like the Paint By Sticker Zoo Animals book.  Find your local store to check inventory near you.

  5. Play Forts. We know that kids love forts, but parents don’t love the mess.  Meet the Airfort!  This fort inflates and deflates in seconds for hours of fun.  (Product requires a standard box fan and is not included with your purchase.)   Find your local store to check inventory near you.

  6. Pretend Play. Little ones will love beautify-ing themselves with the Melissa & Doug Beauty Salon Playset or pay homage to our healthcare heroes with the Get Well Doctor’s Kit Playset.  Find your local store to check inventory near you.

We have thousands of toys and games to choose from, so please find your local store on our website and browse their inventory online or give them a call to let a Toy Expert help you select the perfect toy for your child’s age and interest.
