We know that times are hard and resources can be scarce. Please note that these activities are simply meant to be a guide to help you fill the day and inspire ideas that fit your family. Try all of the activities, just a couple, or watch movies and cuddle on couch – whatever makes your family feel happy and safe during times of uncertainty is the best thing to do.
