Activities for Kids and Parents!

We created a list of ideas to help you get through these tough times of social distancing.  I’ve had so much fun with my kids these last couple days so I thought I would share the list of activities we plan to do during this isolation effort we are in.

Here’s the big list but we also created a printable just in case you wanted to print it out and put it on the refrigerator or hand it to friends.

  1. Thank you for this list! I’m wondering at my age if I shouldn’t write a letter to my grandchildren. LOL
