You’ve probably heard all the same advice: don’t let your kids stay up late and sleep in, stick to the same schedule, give them a sense of structure while they’re stuck at home.

Remember the days of arts & crafts when all you needed was Popsicle sticks and some glue? Find some creative materials you and your kids can use to build towers and houses. Maybe together you can make a whole city!
Learn Magic Tricks
Kids, especially the younger ones, are easily fascinated by simple magic tricks. Teach yourself a few and put on a show, then show your young audience how it works.
