Many businesses have asked employees to work from home, and as cities and states across the US shut down to contain the spread of COVID-19, parents and carers may be at a loss of what to do. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a list of things you can do to keep yourself and the kids entertained for however long it takes until business continues as usual. For many, self-isolation may be a disorientating experience, especially for those of us who are used to spending 80% of our time outside of the house! Nevertheless, it’s important to look on the bright side, whilst channeling our energy into some productive activities.

It’s now apparent that it’s more than just the light bulb that needs fixing… the more time you spend at home, the more you’ll realize how much work there is to be done!

Whether it’s time to re-paint the skirting boards or to drill a hole in the wall and finally hang the mirror up, see what other DIY tasks you can find whilst you’re self-isolating.
