Social distancing measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus has forced schools across the country to close their doors. This leaves kids aged 10 years old and above with little to do at home for weeks (outside binge-watching TV and playing video games). Unlike younger children below 10, however, they are by now old enough to think for and take care of themselves, and so will need something to do to keep themselves busy and sane for the time being while parents either take care of their younger siblings or are busy doing some other task (e.g. working at home).

From card games to experimental science kits, here are some of the best indoor activity items that will help keep kids aged 10 and up stay busy during home lockdown:
