Create-a-poem

While you are apart from your child, take turns making up the lines of a rhyming poem, either during Skype or phone chats or by texting/emailing back and forth. You can specify a theme – “Nature”, say, or “Families” – or just see what develops. See how long you can make the poem before you run out of ideas!

Tips:

Put your kids to work

Even if you don't work with children, you can involve your children in your job.

Tips:

Keeping up with schedules

Get an on-line family calendar so you can keep up with the family’s activities.
