Going Crazy on Day 4?
I don't know about you, but I am ready to start paying teachers a million dollars a year once school is back in session. How do they do it?! My boys have been doing schoolwork for an hour and a half, and they have individually gotten up and asked me seven questions each, went to the bathroom twice, and asked for breaks 3 times! Aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!! I am trying to find a happy medium between doing a little bit of classwork, some fun art projects, baking and some free time for video games and television. My goal is to not have them go back to school as complete zombies who can only relay facts about Fortnite.
Luckily we already have quite a bit of painting supplies, but my boys started asking if we could do some other projects besides painting. I consider myself quite the creative-but I was still having trouble coming up with fun, engaging crafts on my own. So, I decided to take a look at Amazon (because we all know you can buy anything and everything you could ever want from Amazon) and lo and behold-I found tons of ideas for kids crafts at home. Of course, they cost money (because duh, it's Amazon) but I tried to make a list that includes products from $3 to $30 to fit everyone's budget. The list is also appropriate for all different age groups and appropriate for all genders.

I hope this helps to pass the time during this peculiar time while we all have to shelter in place. It's a strange existence we've all been thrown into, and I know our littles are feeling just as lost and restless as we are. So, let's find ways to keep them in engaged, so that we as parents can get back to what we really want to do - scroll Facebook in peace.
