Activities to do With Your Kids

Are you puzzling about what activities you can do with your kids?

As if things weren’t bad enough, now there’s a shortage of jigsaw puzzles just when we need them most.

Paul Stockton, owner of Stockton Jigsaw Puzzles said, “We understand the need. People need puzzles, and they need them now. Unfortunately, our cutting machines running at full capacity can only produce so many.”

We even checked out the availability of puzzles on Amazon and the anticipated arrival dates for most puzzles is May. And that’s with a shipping charge. Ebay also has jigsaw puzzles, but get ready to spend some money there too.

To make matters even worse, craft stores like Joann Fabrics and Michaels are closed. So it’s hard to get craft supplies. Research shows that the act of creating can reduce stress because it takes your mind off things and is a form of self-care. We can also use a bit of daily self-care right now.

So what activities can you do with your kids during this time of social distancing and self-isolation? Read on for some deals going on right now and some apps that are available to play right now.
