Being cooped up at home for longer periods of time during this pandemic may be boring and challenging even for children. Now that they are spending less time on face-to-face activities, we need to be creative in making sure they still get plenty of stimulation and entertainment at home.
Although limiting their screen time on their gadgets and computers is also a must, it cannot hurt to allow them to play online games from time to time to help pass the time and ward off boredom.
One website you might want to consider exploring with your little ones is plays.org. It is one-stop website for all your online game needs. Here are 5 things I love about it:
First and foremost, plays.org website is very user-friendly. It features free unblocked html games that can easily accessed through your browser, without even having to download an app. It will not need a seasoned gamer to figure the site out and even gaming noobs or parents who are not too keen on technology and gaming can easily find their way around the games it offers.

And I hope that more people can join in to help.”

As mass testing for COVID-19 began in key cities this week, Save the Children Philippines is calling on local officials to put in place protective measures for children who may face discrimination and stigma when parents or guardians test positive.
Atty. Alberto Muyot, Chief Executive Officer of Save the Children Philippines, said a person’s health status, whether real or perceived, should not be a basis for discrimination and mistreatment.
Although children can be sometimes unpredictable and there is really no way of telling what will come next where they are involved, here are a few hacks on how we can make them behave in the car during travel.
Potty Business First
Nothings makes children misbehave than when they are feeling uncomfortable and needs to go on a bathroom break. Some toddlers who have been potty-trained would even refuse to pee in their diapers. To solve this, make sure they make the trip to the bathroom to do No.1 or No.2 before you buckle them up in the car seat.
Bring Their Comfy Blanket
While most children enjoy seating in the car, there are those who are not really comfortable, especially during long drives. To help them soothe themselves, make sure to pack their favorite comfy blanket. Who knows, they might even surprise you with long and peaceful naps.
