Set up a sensory bin. Sensory bins are perfect for toddlers to play with and easy to set up.  It also lets them spend some time to play with and learn as well.

Create a schedule

Create a schedule for your children. Kids thrive on routine and feel more secure during this stressful time when they know what to expect each day. Plus they will know when screen times and snack times are so they will ask for those things less which makes parent-life easier!

Celebrate cancelled events at home!

My pro tip for isolating with kids is to make the special things that you had planned still special. If you’ve had your kids excited for something that has now been cancelled, find a way to bring it home!  For instance, we were suppose to take our kids to Mexico for two weeks and they have BEEN so excited for there new summer clothes, swimming in the pool and treats. Wedidn’t want to disappoint so we brought the party to them still!  Maybe go camping in your backyard or still have that party you were going to have.

Tent City

Transform your home into something magical. Gather every extra sheet and blanket in your home, dig out those twinkle lights from Christmas and turn your living room into TENT CITY! (If you are just using sheets a simple thumb tack works great!)

Create an indoor garden

A very simple and time consuming project, planting one tiny seed in one tiny pot over and over! Afterwards you can make garden markers from popsicle sticks.
