I saw on krazy coupon lady that a lot of streaming services are offering free trials and free streaming. We made play snow yesterday and playing board games. We’re planning on making Oobleck tomorrow and I ordered water beads to try out. I'm also having Vada work in her workbooks prepping for kindergarten. The girls have been making forts and pulling out toys we haven't Used in a while. Once I'm feeling better I'm planning to get back more into a routine.

I found my littles (and I) do better if we have a basic schedule. The one I'm using is attached. I'm not rigid about it though and flex around our needs for the day. Plenty of exercise helps us all. I'm also incorporating things like cooking/baking and gardening. I have lots of activity ideas too if anyone wants some. My daughter is 6.
