Schools across the Denver Metro and country are closing down as a precaution to the Coronavirus. That means kids are going to be home for up to 6 weeks in some cities across the country and it’s best to keep kids at home so they 1. don’t get sick 2. carry the virus and spread it to those who are elderly or immunocompromised. We’re on day 2 of being home and the kids are already bouncing off my walls. Keeping kids busy and entertained is key for the sanity of everyone in the house. I’ll share a list of ways to keep kids entertained indoors during spring break and beyond.

Some schools have started online curriculum, but our district hasn’t gotten there yet. Regardless I am preparing for the kids to be home for a while and that means having a variety of things for them to do from learning, art projects, cooking, reading, and playing. Here is a list of items that can help keep your kids learning and entertained during the Coronavirus shutdown.
