These days, we are all spending more time in the house than ever.
Idle time can lead to boredom–but it doesn’t have too!
Keep the kids having fun and learning with the following at-home activities, products, and resources.

The Feel Better Box from Open The Joy
In collaboration with children’s therapists, Open The Joy created The Feel Better Box to keep kids happy and occupied, even if they aren’t feeling their best.
This unique kit is packed with goodies and activities such as origami, magic tricks, “would you rather” questions, painting, an activity book, conversation starters, a unicorn plushie, fidget toy, and much more. I love that not only does it help entertain the kiddos, but it also helps parents and children bond!
While The Feel Better Box would be an ideal “get well soon” gift for a child who sick or injured, it is also great for curing cabin fever for times like these when kids are stuck at home.

Magic Sketch™ from Boogie Board
A colorful and fun new way to draw! Kids can draw, doodle, trace, and play games in vivid color on the Magic Sketch’s semi-transparent screen. Then, with just the touch of a button, everything is instantly erased so they can start again!
I love how the Magic Sketch from Boogie Board is 100% mess-free. No markers, crayons, or paint needed. It is great for paperless at-home play or fun on-the-go.
I also love how the set comes with both fun and educational templates that children can use to practice writing their ABC’s, trace drawings, or play games like hangman or tic-tac-toe.
