78 Creative Quarantine Homeschool Activities For Kids

Since posting our first Quarantine Creativity post, found here, where we organized our stay-at-home projects for every age group, we have grown such a desire to help out with your social distancing in any way we can! As the time spent at home grows longer, questions and uncertainty arise, and every one catches their own case of cabin fever (at least it’s not the Coronavirus!) the need for new projects grows too! Especially considering everyone is now trying to homeschool their kids without going crazy!

The entire reason we are promoting crafting during this time is we know the power of creating. Keeping your hands busy can quiet the anxiety and create color and hope in this gray time. We understand not everyone has loads of craft supplies on their hands, let alone the energy to wrangle your kids to clean up their “artistic process.” This post is for the days when you need something simple, clean, and work-free! Below you will find out favorite quarantine activities for kids that promote learning, curiosity, imagination, and of course, COLOR – without any work (or batteries) needed.

Just hand your kids one of these kits, books, or puzzles, and take a break! You deserve it!

  1. OMG I love these tips! The reading books one is something I’ve been trying so I can help build a habit for my kids to read more and more. It also helps me get into reading because I’m not the best reader myself. Going outside has been kinda hard especially when kids feel lazy but it works best when I make it sound like an adventure for them!

    Great article Brittany! Love these tips
