Inside: Stuck at home? Here's an activity pack with 5 days of fun and easy learning activities for kids!
Since we are going to be stuck at home with our children, why not make the best out of them? I imagined it to be like a summer camp at home with my kids. And this idea of a Home Explorer Camp came to my mind!
Five Days, Five Themes
In this activity pack, you will find 5 Home Explorer Camps based on the following themes: animals, space, flowers and plants, ocean and weather.
These activities are suitable for children 3 to 8 years old. Because of the open-ended nature of most activities, siblings are able to enjoy most of the activities together.
A resource packed with Fun and Easy Learning Activities for Kids
While designing this resource, I want to make this as fun as possible for the kids and as easy as possible for the parent. And not forgetting to incorporate meaningful learning experiences too.
Keeping these factors in mind, every activity
- invites children to explore a theme,
- uses common things you can find at home and
- requires only 0 to 5 minutes of preparation time.
Here are some examples of the activities.

A fun mission game for kids
Each theme comes with 8 fun and easy learning activities in the form of missions for your children to complete.
Once they complete a task on a mission card, they unlock the next mission and receive another card until they have completed all the missions.
Each theme also comes with 3 mission cards that incorporate your daily activities like nap time, meal time and shower and 1 special card for children when they completed all their missions.
I hope these fun missions will help you and your children get through your day one activity at a time.
