TikTok doesn't have to be a mystery, nor does it have to be something we shy away from. There are plenty of family friendly trends and activities you can learn from the app! Below, we've shared some trends you can try out with your little ones that inspire creativity and fun! There are millions of videos you can scroll through on the platform, so it's easy to get lost in the chaos. Instead of just mindlessly scrolling through your For You Page, try looking for specific sounds and hashtags.
It's a great way to find tailored content perfect for what you need. And be sure to follow your favorite creators so that you don't miss one of their posts.
The hashtag #ArtChallenge has over 4.4 billion videos, and has ideas for beginners to skilled artists! From coloring outside of the lines to painting a new design on your wall, this hashtag is a great way to get your creative streak going, especially when you've got creative kids who love arts and crafts.
This trend is a sweet time capsule for mothers and daughters to try. Mom, you lip sync to the audio first, and then when the song changes, your daughter finishes off the song. It turns into a super cute video to share with family and friends, and also shows the similarities between mother and daughter!
Use the Vintage Camcorder filter and check out the example down below and see if you can make your own!
3. New Hairstyles
TikTok is a great way to find hairstyles you never would have thought of, and they'll always break things down step by step. Even if you don't consider yourself great at hair, these are often very easy, with only supplies like a hair brush and hair ties needed!
When looking at ways to change up you or your child's hair, try scrolling through the #Hairstyles, or check out this one down below.
4. Viral Recipes
One of the best parts about the Internet is how easy you can turn online recipes into your own personal cookbook. TikTok only elevates that, with personal videos that show you how to do everything so you don't have to just read about it.
It's alway fun to jump into a new recipe, especially ones that people can't stop talking about, like the viral Baked Feta Pasta dish. Go out of your comfort zone and try something new, either for yourself or the whole family to enjoy!
You knew this one would be on here. What's the best way to get you off your couch, get some exercise, and have fun along the way? Learning a dance is the one of the best ways to get yourself moving. Always remember that it's okay to laugh at yourself a little, and that having fun is the most important part.
The hashtag #NewDance is a good place to start if you're looking for something new to try out with the family.
Here are two dances to get you started!
And of course, we can't forget a dance to Taylor Swift's summer hit "August."
Boredom can become painful over the summer, but these trends will surely keep you and your kiddos busy. If you spot anymore videos we should have our eye on this summer, make sure to let us know in the comments.
