Projects, activities and fun for kids

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has left many kids without the structure and guidance of their much needed oh, so missed teachers. For parents/caregivers everywhere looking for some creative ways to keep your children engaged, learning, having fun and (most important!) busy, here are some links to resources we've found and are using with our own kids during this stressful and trying time. Some are fun and crazy, some are educational, but all will fill the need to stay busy and provide you and your kids some lasting memories.

Thank you to anyone who has sent us resources, and to those willing to share free material. We are all in this together.
