Seven fun online activities for kids quarantined during Covid 19

The year 2020 has been a challenging year with the Coronavirus pandemic. Covid 19 as it is commonly called is a deadly upper respiratory illness that has been affecting millions around the globe. It is easily spread from person to person and those infected may not show any signs of its symptoms for up to 2 weeks. To curb the spread of this infectious disease mandatory quarantine guidelines and travel restrictions had to be issued by many countries.  Local governments also required non-essential businesses as well as schools to close.  

  

With children forced to stay indoors during the pandemic, keeping them entertained for long periods of time can be a challenge for parents.  Lets face it, watching television or playing video games all day long is not always the best use of time. Thankfully, there are other activities kids can do that can be both entertaining and educational.  In the blog this month, we came up with a list of activities we found on the internet that checks both boxes. Enjoy!
