Right now many people around the globe are being confined to their homes because of the coronavirus. For parents with kids who are now at home full-time, this might be extra challenging time. While this is a stressful time for everyone, there are also many ways to make an extended time at home more enjoyable. Here are a few creative ways to keep both you and your kids busy during this trying time. And remember — we’re going to get through this!
Read A Book
We all have a stack of books that we’ve “been meaning to get to” for quite some time now. This is the chance to finally dust these off and dive into another world. Reading is a great way to escape and take your mind off of things for a little while.
