Go for a walk

Parents can take long walks with their children as a form of exercise and bonding. They can make the walk extra special by turning it into a treasure hunt, or a game of I spy.

Create a bedtime ritual

Creating a bedtime routine or ritual with your child will make them feel special and strengthen your relationship. You can add storytime, snuggle time, lullaby time, or even a bit of sleepy time yoga for an extra bit of bonding!

Read a book together

Parents can make storytime even more exciting by asking the child to pick the book, do voice modulation while reading, or use prompts or puppets.

Fix it together

Most homes have something or the other that needs to be fixed or organised. Parents can involve their children by asking them to help out in the simplest age-appropriate chores, like handing the screws, painting, etc.
