Fun and Educational Activities During Lockdown

Here we are again, Sydney! We are (at least in our area) going through our second lockdown, first one being some 14 months ago already. In the first lockdown, I was still struggling to work out how to keep my two #bigschoolkids and young preschooler entertained and to ensure that their education could be continued at home. I spent many hours researching on the internet for lockdown activities and many more hours planning their day to to ensure that they had enough to do to keep them stimulated.

Second time ’round, I now have a little more experience and am a bit more organized, so I am compiling and sharing a list of awesome activities that would keep the kids engaged and learning during lockdown.

Hopefully this list would be of benefit to you as we navigate ourselves through his pandemic together.
