As of last Friday, our family (and the rest of the country) is now on a 1-month “Stay-at-Home-Spring-Break” due to the current craziness.
Dave will still be able to teach most of his classes online, our children’s teachers sent a bunch of extra worksheets home with them, we have TONS of library books, and we put up the trampoline over the weekend!
Other than that, we’ll just have A LOT of free time at home for the next 4 weeks.
Personally, I could think of worse things than being home together for a month.
However, I know not everyone shares my love of being home all day, every day.
In an effort to help school-age families be more intentional with the time they spend together at home, I created a really fun (TOTALLY FREE) resource for families who are now home-bound for the next month!
If you have school-age children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbors, or friends and could use a little FREE inspiration to stay busy over the next few weeks, you definitely want to join in on the fun!!
And feel free to share this post (using the links below) with anyone you know who will be home with children for the next month — coworkers, church friends, neighbors, book club participants, gym buddies, daycares, nannies, caregivers, etc. etc.
What’s Included in Create! Make! Do!
For 7 days, participants will receive one email from me with the following goodies:
- 1 simple, not-too-messy project to CREATE!
- 1 simple, kid-approved recipe they can actually help you MAKE!
- 1 simple, family-friendly activity to DO! together
- 1 bonus article about a related simple-living topic
I was originally planning to launch this stay-at-home activity bundle in a couple of weeks.
But considering the whole country is now on a mandatory month-long stay-at-home spring break, I figured I’d share it earlier.
And yes, this resource is TOTALLY FREE – no catch, no strings attached!
Yup, we’re excited too!
As an introverted mom who LOVES being at home (but totally understands the struggle of being at home WITH kids all day, every day) I’m happy to share this resource with parents and caregivers who might struggle a bit more with being “cooped up” all month!
I hope it will offer some much-needed structure, fun, and creativity to the long-feeling days at home with kids.
I’m confident that with the right attitude and a “game plan” (including tools like my free activity bundle) the memories made at home with our families these next few weeks will be remembered for years to come!
