Best way to keep kids busy in these tough times.


My kids have been home ever since the pandemic happened and keeping them busy and occupied, hasn't been as easy as I thought. Most of the time they are bored and I have to constantly come up with new and innovative ways to keep them busy.

Since schools are online they spend a lot of time on their computers.

The other day, I was just sitting next to my son reading a  book when I heard disturbing lound sounds coming from his computer. I soon realized he was playing a game and I was not happy since it had a lot of violence and the game was all about destructing things and killing the characters.It looked so real.

I personally think it is not a good message for my young child. Asking him not to play a game wasn't something that would ever happen but to find him better games is what I did. 

So found a couple of sites that have free versions of classic games  These games are, I must say addictive but addiction can easily be  controlled.
sites like
247 games
Addicting Games
Free Online Games

Out of all I like as it has a simple interface and the huge variety of games. It is  free to play without creating an account. The site has games for all age levels. My personal favorite is

Barbarian Escape: Prehistoric Flying Exit Game
It is fun and interesting. It needs concentration or else barbarian explodes.  has many game categories and my son loves to play new games in his free time.
 Overall the site is easy to use and has a very clean look. Most sites are overloaded, overwhelming or do not say much about the game unless you click on it but is easy to browse and so far my kids and I, are loving.
