Fun activities for everyone while we #stayathome

During this time of uncertainty, let’s all be responsible, stay informed, and stay at home

While some are still working during the day, others are home schooling and some are bored. There are so many free online resources out there. Free concerts, audio books and courses, and of course, lots of online shopping to do

Just A Mamma has some great activity suggestions for children. Here is the link:
