Finding activities and stimulation for the kids during these times is quite the challenge. Something with a screen is a help, but they might only last a finite amount of time. An alternative could be some old fashioned toys to re-engage the minds.
Craft is a great way to get children creative and Shrinky Dinks activity sets still exist and will set young minds in new directions.
For the more advanced, there’s Perler Beads. They look quite generic, but that’s their strength. Imaginative thinking is required to make use of them and that’s a highly prized feature. Add to that the skills required and the result is many hours spent forgetting that they are locked inside.
Craft is a well suited method to while away the hours as we work through these once in a generation times.
