It has been more than 10 days since we started the quarantine period due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Many of you will probably be spending the quarantine with your children. They will probably have a lot of leisure time right now after doing their homework and playing. Precisely, in order to complement this last activity, we can do some physical exercise with them. Here you have a home workout with children that you can do with them during the quarantine.
Many specialists talk about how playing with children could be considered part of their daily physical activity.
Regardless of your level, it could be a good way of staying in shape now that the gym is closed and we cannot go out.
However, in HSN, we also want to give you a few tips so that you will be able to do exercise, play and entertain your children. Now that they are not able to go out and play with other children, we need to become their best friends.
Moreover, it is also a good opportunity to introduce them to the world of sports (if they barely do it). Or maybe, they will start looking at things with a new perspective.
So do not worry, in this post, we are going to give you a complete exercise chart so that your children will also be able to train at home 😉
Time to study, read, play and do exercise
You probably have to telework during the quarantine, but we have to take this as an opportunity. Now we can use some of our spare time with our family and especially our children.
The ideal thing would be to plan a weekly timetable, or at least plan our day ahead. Leave some time to study, work, read, play and sports.
In addition, try to create a study or work routine for your children while you telework. We all need to have our own responsibilities.
Exercise should be like a Game
Above all, this will depend on the age of your children. If they are almost adolescents you will probably have to adapt your own routine to a beginner routine. That is why we suggest checking out our HSN Blog.
However, if your children are still very young, you should try to catch their attention with some games. Because games are going to become their daily exercise.
Teach basic exercises to your children, it is a good way of introducing them to the fascinating world of sports.
Here you have an example of said routine. You can check out the Twitter profile and access the daily routines. They are full of games for the smallest members of the family!

Use of new technologies
Since there is time for everything, we can use the new technologies and teach our children how to use them.
In fact, they will probably have to do their homework through the net. However, it is always important to give them a sense of responsibility, so that they will use them to work.
Technology can also help your children socialize in a controlled way with their classmates or friends.
Do you want some more ideas even though they are not sport? Watching cartoons in other languages like English, something that we barely do ourselves due to lack of time. Well, now you have more time than ever and you can spend some time with your children to learn a new language.
Can children play video games? Of course, but it would be a good idea to set a time, because we are not on holiday and we also need to do other activities.
Even the youngest members can also find out new activities during the confinement…
