Kennedy Warne with some natural history ways to keep kids occupied and engaged with nature. 
iNaturalist NZ - Mātaki Taiao  has a myriad of activities children can around their homes to record, learn and then share their natural history discoveries on online

Also Wild Dunedin has created a site called "Your Wild Bubble" with lots of ideas for kids.  Even though confined to home, during your bubble walk around the neighbourhood there is much to observe. Plants, pets,fungi (it's the season), starlings, spiders in the pantry, moths on the window, vegetables, weeds and moss in the footpath, street trees, and lichens on your letterbox.
