As childcare and schools have closed across the state, hundreds of thousands of kids are now at home with their regular routines on hold. Now more than ever, kids need connection, attention, and structure to keep thriving. Here are some ways to keep reading and learning fun as you and your family navigate your “new normal.” Keep your children’s brains active with these educational and entertaining activities. They require varying levels of supervision, to help you stay sane too!
And, we’re adding to a rapidly growing list of resources all the time – so be sure to check back on our website frequently for more new ideas and resources from awesome educators, authors and parents!
Now, as self-care is incredibly important as well, we have adult resources available too at the bottom of this page.
