This post was originally written for activity ideas during the summer, but is equally applicable to this time of uncertainty and ALL THE CHILDREN BEING HOME.
I don’t know about your house, but with my kids, after awhile it becomes inevitable to hear the sibling squabbling ramp up or the “I’M BORED” declarations. Having a few activities planned or fun crafts or outdoor games in your back pocket can be a life saver.
Let’s plan some activities for those crazy kids of ours. This is a tough time for them too!
