When Parents Run Out of Games For Their Children

kids get bored, before playing free games on https://plays.org

I have always felt that I have to balance, when I let children play at home and when children have to play with friends around them. As a wife I also have to balance when it is time for me to buy the toys that is expensive and when I can save by giving free games. In essence, everything must be balanced and always have educational content, so that my child grows normally with a balance between playing and studying with the financial capabilities in our family.

Then the pandemic came, and things changed. My son is no longer free to play outside, my son is no longer easy to play with his friends, including those who live around our house. Everything is limited. At the start of the pandemic I felt I could passed it easier. I continue to provide various games, I also play with them so they don't get too bored at home. and of course to prevent them from feeling depressed. any game is entertainment for us as a family.

In this times, We have to be able to enjoy this situation, we have to always feeling happy, because if we are in a bad mood then the immunity in our body will go down and that's dangerous, right? That's why as a parent I have to always be creative in making children able to play in the midst of a pandemic that has lasted more than 1 year.

By the way, I have 3 children. they are 10 years old, 6 years old and 4 years old which are the ages of playful children who are energetic and always thinking all the time, ow I think they just stop talking and thinking while sleeping. every day there is something they do and they tend to get bored easily when they are done playing it.

When the pandemic comes

When the first 6 months of pandemic, I was still able to facilitate my child with various games. I even provide a special budget to buy toys so that the atmosphere changes. School lessons that are not too many activities and only limited to learning through zoom make children run out of activity ideas. Actually I really want my children to be able to play as I have played since childhood. not because my games are great, but old games tend to sharpen the brain and think a lot without having to be addicted, just normal.

One day I managed to get 40 free games through a computer store, they were played offline and many old games, such as tetris, pinball, zuma and so on. But because of the pandemic situation and confining the children at home, it turned out that the 40 games had been played out before a month. For real? yes.. How am I not dizzy as an old man. I'm out of ideas, I'm out of games.

When I found plays.org

Until finally accidentally when I was googling for freegames I found the https://plays.org site, it was https://plays.org is a free children's games site that provides more than 100 educational and online children's games, also with various genres in the catalog. Maybe all of you want to know how it looks like. So, I share some pictures that I screenshot from the web, hope it can help you to find them.

I was surprised because inside I found there were many classics games that I used to play when I was little like Tetris, pinball, pacman, snake and so on. I want to introduce to my children for a long time that my childhood games were very fun, and it turns out that after they tried to play them, they liked it too. all the games there are quite easy to play but still educate the child's brain to think fast and move precisely, it seems like I rewind my childhood story. 

This is a picture I took when I saw my children playing Pac-Rat, this toy is inspired by Pac-Man. so much fun about a mouse eating a lot of cheese. you can showing this game to you children by click this Pac-Rat games.

Not only children, I also often feel bored because the pandemic has kept me at home for quite a long time. So I also like to play games on this plays-org website, the games I like besides my childhood classic games are simulation games, namely open restaurant simulations. This game is a game about speed, as soon as we serve visitors seems like we have a real restaurant, I'm very excited to play this. I want you to feel the fun playing it too where mothers and children at home get an exciting games, so you can try it just by clicking this Open Restaurant simulation games.
