Creative Homeschool Recess Ideas from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

Most parents never thought that their children would go to school from the comfort of their homes. Yet, due to this global pandemic, we are currently dealing with just that. Some of y’all are trying to balance excelling in your own job while also assisting your kid with schoolwork. To say that schedules, normalcy, and life are different is an understatement. However, throughout the adjustment period, many of y’all have figured out that there are ways to embrace this challenge and make it better for everybody involved. Lucky for y’all, I am here to give another way to do just that. Below is material providing y’all creative homeschool recess ideas to get your kids outside and moving!

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a backyard, the weather stinks, or there is just not enough time in the day. These ideas will help you fit this fun time into your everyday life.

Alexa Activity Games

With today’s technology, play can be so easy. All y’all must do is ask Alexa to help out and recess has begun. Alexa will get your kids up and moving no matter the activity that you ask her to do. Gingerbread Man, Animal Workout, and Freeze Dance are all fun ones to try out!

Hopscotch With Tape

Y’all don’t need a driveway and chalk to play hopscotch. Get creative and pick an open area around the house. Grab some tape and make a hopscotch outline for your kids to play on. I don’t know about y’all, but this was one of my favorite recess activities growing up. I have no doubt they will have a blast—even if they do it in your living room!

Backyard Putting Green

While this might be just a little more extravagant than the taped-on hopscotch on your carpet, it still is a wonderful idea. Having a backyard putting green installed—especially if your child is interested in golf—might be one of your best purchases yet. It gets them outside and practicing their favorite hobby. Does your significant other likes golf, too? If so, that sounds like a win-win to me!

Indoor Trampoline

And last, but most certainly not least, a staple child playtime item is the trampoline. The best part? You don’t have to have a large backyard; plus, it is very reasonable in price. This indoor trampoline is perfect to get your kid up and moving while being safe and indoors while doing it.

Don’t sit around twiddling your thumbs because there is nothing to do. Think outside of the box! Use some of these creative homeschool recess ideas to get your kids away from their computer screens and moving. Y’all, I promise—nobody in your home will be disappointed.
