Being in quarantine with kids can be somewhat crazy at times, as I’m sure we’re all discovering. Fun activities and a creative space for learning can keep their little minds (and hands) busy, though! Below, we’ve rounded up a few resources and inspiring spaces that have helped our team’s little ones stay entertained during the last month.

Activities & Resources:

Elsie Larson, a mother to two sweet daughters, and her sister Emma Chapman have projects for mom, dad, and kids, but our favorites are the ones for the whole family to enjoy together.

Virtually visit the animals at the Audubon Nature Institute in New Orleans, Louisiana, and learn lots of fun facts while you’re there! The organization is offering quizzes about the animals, downloadable dot-to-dot worksheets, and virtual stargazing along with other activities.

Montage Palmetto Bluff 

Adapting their popular on-site program, Montage Palmetto Bluff has created the At-Home Edition of Montage Merits, which rewards kids with merit badges for completing special activities. With this version, kids are encouraged to spot wildlife, build a blanket fort, perform a kind act, and complete plenty of other fun and family-focused tasks.

Bright hues, family photos, and colorful art are keys to these kids’ workroom. And don’t miss their daily schedule and list of activities, as well.

This space might be small, but with tons of storage and a fun color palette, kids can stay busy for hours here.

Three girls share this playroom/workspace, but thanks to thoughtful storage solutions, their mess is totally contained when the room is not in use.
