It’s been a crazy few months, hasn’t it? This has definitely been a new and unique experience for all of us. But you know who deserves the biggest applause for staying positive during this time? Our awesome kids!
Think about it. Our kids have never stayed indoors more than they have in these past weeks. All the things they look forward to – playgroups, parks and even preschool have been taken away from them. And in its place? Rules.
Yet, somehow, they get up and carry on. They make it their mission to make the best out of the situation. They make blanket forts, construct obstacle courses, craft cool space ships out cardboard boxes and help us with the washing (sort of).
Mostly, they make us laugh, they keep us active and they remind us that staying home is the most heroic thing we can do right now.
Our kids really are our little heroes at home. And for that, they deserve the world (when we’re allowed out of lockdown, of course).
Here’s a fun at-home activity for the kids – just print out the PJ Masks colouring-in sheet below and let your little hero colour it in!
And the cherry on top? Not only will you keep them busy with this colouring-in challenge, but it will also get them excited for the NEW SEASON OF PJ MASKS, airing on ABC Kids iView every Monday at 4:20pm. YAY!
It’s time to be a hero
If your little one loves PJ Masks, then you’re probably all too familiar with the show. It’s one of our favourite preschooler programs that follows the thrilling night-time adventures of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko.
Cute theme song. Catchy phrases. Fun characters. Great graphics. But what we especially love about it is how much our own little superheroes love it. And how they are actually being taught some pretty important lessons – you know, like working as a team, helping out, being active, solving problems – in every episode.
Now more than ever we need these superheroes in our children’s lives, to show our kids that they too are saving the day, simply by staying home, being creative, staying active and helping out.
Celebrating our little heroes at home
This is why the team behind PJ Masks setup an Activity Hub on their website and apps. There are activity sheets, videos and heaps more fun things for the kids to do at home. We’ve shared some of them below so you can easily print them off and give them a go.
