Right now we are all struggling to maintain new lifestyles of social distancing. With kids, it’s a whole new ball game. We’re all looking for resources and ideas for keeping the kids entertained while continuing their education from home.
For us stay at home moms, it’s not much different than our usual routines, but now we can’t take the kids anywhere. We can’t take them to the store for a free cookie while we grab our groceries, we can’t take them to the park to meet their friends, and we definitely can’t take them out to eat at a restaurant.
The first two weeks went by fairly normally but now the kids are starting to get more antsy and we are starting to feel more drained. Staying home is starting to take a toll on us for sure!
On the bright side of all this, there are a lot of great FREE resources available right now for parents and children to stay sane while social distancing.
