10 Fun Things To Do With Children At Home

Hey Lovely Mummas,

If you are like the rest of the world, chances are you community is beginning to limit large group settings and encourage people to limit contact with others. Schools are closing, churches are not holding services, libraries and entertainment venues are closing, even Disney world is closed! And as uncomfortable as it is – it’s a good thing to stop the progression of the Coronavirus. But if we have to quarantine for a few weeks, what is your family going to do, as we work as a community to stop this pandemic? Here are 10 fun things to do with your kids at your house to make the 2020 Coronavirus FUN! So, let's jump right into it!
