What are the 12 home activities you can do with your family?

With Dorscon Orange and escalating of COVID-19 cases, the Authority has advised social distancing and entertainment and tuition centres to be closed. 

With technology, life is still not so greatly affected.

What can you do if you are on LOA (Leave of Absence), SHN (Stay Home Notice) , QO (Quarantine Order) and even to be safe and stay at home?

For our family, i could engage the kids with the following activities. 

1. Simple cooking

3. Gardening

4. Karaoke
Any songs from the wheels on the bus to Frozen to Senorita. Good exercise for your lungs.

Train alertness and strategizing.

6. Play traditional board games
Such as
- Bingo and the loser do 10 push ups. Good exercise ya.
- Boggles to brush up our observation and english.

7. Playing online games
Such as
- Over cook which requires team work and cummunication.
