Traveling by car with kids in Switzerland and beyond
Your Mediterranean summer family holiday has been cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19. And now you are exploring your options of local tourism to find a destination to escape to and re-charge for next winter. If you are lucky enough to be stuck in a country like Switzerland, remember that you are on the winning end of the bargain, as Switzerland is one of the most beautiful, safe, reliable and child-friendly countries in Europe.
Having said that, no matter where the summer sun finds you and your little ones, if you don’t want to regret ever leaving your front door, then preparation is key.
Our top picks for eating out with family around the Zurich Lake region
These two months have been challenging particularly for families with children as the home restriction was hard on everyone.
And a nice meal with the whole family is a much needed retreat after the quarantine.
How can we celebrate motherhood on a single day?
As a mother I sense genuine gratitude from my kids during unexpected and fleeting moments of pure joy. They express it unknowingly how happy it makes me.
Therefore, no flower, no card and no craft (which no child will be making at school these days by the way) will ever come close to show the gratitude needed for a mamma to feel understood and appreciated, nor should it. Having said this, jewelry comes close, and a day alone for self-care comes closer.
Until however, until my children become parents they cannot come close to understanding how much we are sacrificing, and that’s ok, I couldn’t either.
How to Host the BEST Virtual Birthday Party!
This day, that day, the other day, someday, yesterday, today… I no longer know what day of the week it is. This may be the case for us parents, but I assure you that your child knows exactly what day their birthday is, despite all the chaos around.
So how can you make their day special during the lock down, when you cannot physically see family and friends to celebrate? While you could wait to reschedule a party when all of this is over, virtual parties are awesome and can even be more exciting than a conventional event. They are practically free, almost no clean-up after, zero exhaustion from hosting and you can still socialise within a virtual yet real time environment.
Should children wear masks?
If yes, under what circumstances and should they wear them at school?
The COVID 19 pandemic is now at its peak all over Europe.
While countries like Denmark are taking small steps to get back to normal life, many parents are still reluctant to let children go back to school.
Within a few weeks nevertheless, normal life will look totally different, especially regarding education. Schools will open their doors to students once more but changes will have to be made for safety.
Parents are wondering whether they should make their children wear masks since it is challenging to convince a young child to keep something on their face for so long. So should children wear masks?
Breakfast tables are the new school desk
With online learning now part of the daily rhythm of life under lockdown, Swiss households are being slowly converted into classrooms.
The role reversals are not entirely welcome, as parents are now subbing as teachers and stepping in as IT support.
Momizen talks with TechLabs founder Joel Radvanyi about how online learning should be working for parents - not against them.
Top Virtual Museums
The whole world encounters, maybe for the first time this century, a pandemic so big that has shaken us all! In the spirit of protecting ourselves and our loved ones we are advised to stay at home. But what to do, how to pass time and most importantly how to find interesting things to do with your kids while “staying in quarantine” for the next days. Not to worry! We have prepared for you a list with some of the world’s most amazing virtual tours of museums. This way you can find yourselves entering a museum each day and discovering a new world from the comfort and safety of your home!
Top Learning Activities at Home
And as you might be busy working from home for the next few weeks, you might be in desperate need of a strategy to balance fun and learning time with the young ones.
Combine these activities with some unplugged time for maximum effect and just make sure you have an old phone/mobile the children can borrow and a charger for when the fun needs recharging!
Top Outdoor Activities
Rainy weather can be difficult if you have children as they love playing out in the open and rain limits the activities you can do outdoors. However, there are plenty of indoor suggestions for all parents who live in Zurich and want to have a fun time with their young ones on a rainy day.
