EXTENSION NOTES: Fun Indoor Activities for Your Children

When you are confined at home, it can be hard to find activities to do with your children. This can be especially true with younger children. It is easy to allow your children to spend more time on the computer or in front of the television. However, these activities can reduce the amount of quality time you spend together as a family. Too much screen time can also be connected to childhood obesity. When you spend time together in fun activities, you create memories that last a lifetime.
