25 Activities to entertain kids at home - because we can never have enough new ideas to keep the Kiddos busy!

Whether you have chosen to keep your children home to keep them healthy/not compromising our at-risk community. Perhaps you are in fact faced with mandatory self-isolation. In any case, we know it will be hard on everyone.

Our children miss out - seeing their friends, having a set routine and seeing their teachers and even grandparents. For some parents it will feel stressful like school holidays (even more so if you are working from home) , except this time being housebound! For other parents it may be easy as they are used to homeschooling. Either way, let's ensure we all have the best experience we can whilst cooped up at home!
