Now that most of us are stuck at home, you’re likely looking for resources to keep your kids entertained. While this change in life may seem like an inconvenience, I suggest looking at it as an opportunity to slow down and connect as a family! Focus on things you can do together to make good memories during this time.
It’s also important to keep some learning going on, but it doesn’t have to be super formal. You would be surprised at what your kids can learn through reading good books, hands-on activities, and online resources.
I’ve been making a list of all the resources I have come across, and have compiled them into an awesome list for you.
Here are 65 great family resources for when you’re stuck at home!
