Our selection of play ideas for at home

What do you do when children are at home and stuck inside? This is most likely one of the biggest questions parents and other caregivers are asking themselves right now.

  • How do we keep the kids entertained for days or weeks?
  • How do we prepare for it?
  • Where do we get the best resources from?
