With schools canceled in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the kids are home. And maybe bored. And maybe on the verge of turning feral. (Or is that just mine?)

A few weeks of managing our children’s boredom is the very, very least we can do to help those on the frontlines fighting this disease, which is why I don’t want to complain. I am grateful for my health and my children’s health. But, we can be grateful for our health, for the fact that we have healthy kids at home, and also want just five minutes of silence to check social media in peace.

Which is why we’ve compiled this handy list of websites that offer printables that can maybe help in the never-ending quest to keep the kids busy.
