It’s on all of our minds, especially since Coronavirus has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Events are being cancelled left and right and most parents are just wondering when not if schools will be cancelled. This idea makes many working parents worried, myself included so I thought I’d compile some of the activities I’ve shared over the years so you can start to prepare and grab supplies in case you’re stuck at home for a few weeks with your children. I’ve also included a group of activities specifically geared towards younger toddlers (18-24 months) towards the end. And if all else fails… don’t forget about our favorite Yoga channel!!!
To start here are some shopping links for you which contain affiliate links:

You can also use smaller regular sized ice cubes and break out the water colors!
