Day 3 of total social distancing for us here and for the past week, I’ve compiled a long list of my favorite resources for parents and kids to keep them busy. I want to preface this blog post by saying a few things first. If all you have time for is to keep food in their bellies, you’re doing a great job momma. This is not a time for panic that your kids are not learning, it’s a time for closeness. Top resources for kids during social distancing.

Those are the top 4 we are using right now, but I still want to provide a list of all the others I have found that are amazing! Keep in mind all of the resources are free for at least 30 days.
Non-Technology Things to do
Read any books you have at home.
Home Economics 101 (bake bread, learn to make a bed, learn to tie your own shoes, you get the idea).
Go on walks. Yes, fresh air is good right now.
Watch a classic movie together.
Build with legos.
Make slime (yeah, I know lol).
Print off any free coloring pages you can get your hands on.
Plant a flower. Today we planted these little seeds I had been hoarding away for summer.
Teach your kids how to cook. Now is the best time.
Watch a Ted talk with your kids.
Go to my Summer Fun List on Pinterest. There are so many things I have planned.
I’m teaching my kids how to make Elderberry Syrup this week.
I’ll add things to the list as I find them, you know I love to research 😉 Please feel free to leave a blog post comment on something you have found helpful as well.
