While there are parents who currently have time for their children all day, others are faced with the challenge of continuing to take care of everyday work while working from home and having fun with their children at the same time. And all without losing your nerve. It is not uncommon for everyday life to be upside down for one family or another. Especially now that children have to forego meeting friends outside, a wealth of ideas is needed in the fun program. We have put together some alternatives for all parents and children that can be done at home and are fun.

Competition: Show us your most beautiful forest

One of the most beautiful things you can do as a child is discovering the world with friends, going into the forest and looking for little treasures. So that your children don't have to miss out on the forest during this time, we'll simply bring the forest to your home. We have drawn three tree-shaped templates so that your children can color and decorate them as they wish - including animals, flowers and even tree planters. The best thing about it: We are looking for the most beautiful forest and are giving away 3 x Treeanie Kids of your choice and a 50 euro voucher from all entries.

And this is how it works:

  • Print out the template you want and let your children color the drawing
  • Take a photo of the drawing
  • Post the photo of the drawing on Instagram or make an Instagram story
  • Tag @nikinclothing on the post
  • If you don't have Instagram, simply send the photos of the colored drawings to: sven@nikin.ch
  • All participants between 1 and 10 years old are allowed to take part
  • The deadline for participation is the 29th. April 2020
  • The three winners will each receive a Treeanie Kids of their choice and a 50 euro voucher

Is there anything better than organizing cozy game evenings together? If you are isolated as a whole family, you can try our fun forest ladder game, for example. All you need is our printed template, a dice, game pieces (it can also be stones, buttons or colorful M&Ms) and you're ready to go. Whoever wins can then decide what should be implemented next on the idea list.

Organize a fashion show and sort out

Getting rid of old things has never been so good as in spring. Just in time for the first warm days, many people feel the annual urge to spring clean. This also includes clearing out your closet. Use this time to combine the sorting with a fashion show - the crazier the combination of clothes, the better. In the end, saying goodbye to the old sweater or ripped jeans will definitely be better.

And if you have difficulty getting rid of clothes you love but have already worn out, sorting boxes will help you. Set up three large boxes and separate clothes that you want to keep, clothes that belong in the trash and clothes that will be donated.

Make presents and paint for the grandparents

Just as for children and parents, all grandparents are also faced with major challenges: They are not allowed to have any contact with their grandchildren until further notice. But they in particular would definitely be happy to receive attention from the family. Let the children make something for them or paint something for them - for example with one of our coloring templates. These can easily be sent by post and are a small token of appreciation for all those old people who are feeling lonely at the moment due to their restricted movement and are missing their families.

Grandparents who have smartphones that can play videos will definitely be happy to see a rehearsed play that their grandchildren perform and film for them. Grandparents can also take part in the family fun - even if only digitally at the moment.

Cook and bake together

Structure is particularly important - not just for parents who work at home and have to manage their tight schedules. Children also benefit from knowing that there are things that need to be sorted out, even without school or kindergarten. So that at least the cooking goes smoothly and there are no disagreements about what to have for lunch, you can make a weekly cooking plan with your children. Write down who is responsible for what and when. While smaller children can, for example, serve up the cutlery, older children can take on entire menus. This means everyone knows what their job is, which ultimately makes the entire cooking process faster.

Another way to share the kitchen as a family is to bake cookies or other treats. After all, it's not just fun during the Christmas season. Try out new, delicious recipes together and then eat them together at a movie night.

Build huts and adventure corners

Who actually said that you have to go outdoors to camp? There are no limits to creativity, because with a few cloths, blankets, boxes, umbrellas and a lot of imagination, the children's room can be transformed in no time into a loving hut landscape that invites you to play, a campsite for the home or a hiding place that only the little ones can enjoy granted access to the family. What is taken into the hiding place is up to the children: books, games, dolls, stuffed animals or even homemade cookies.

Sow seeds and watch the plants grow

If you have a garden or balcony, you can use the sunny spring days to remove the winter dirt and plant the first seeds in pots. These can also be decorated with colors and written on so that you can keep an overview when observing the plants. In any case, gardening can be done much better and faster as a family than alone. Removing weeds, cleaning garden furniture, mowing the lawn, collecting beautiful stones, arranging pots and getting everything in shape - working together as a family means you have longer time to enjoy the spring sunshine.
