As in every situation we encounter in life, there is always a positive way to approach it. With the hustle and bustle of our routines suddenly screeching to a halt, it can be a source of some anxiety for parents. While most of our kiddos are beginning their virtual school, there are still hours a day left unfilled. In the never-ending search for kids’ activities to do at home, we have compiled a few suggestions.
At Monkey Bizness, our goal is to keep kids active, but we know that can’t be done all day. More and more places are providing free resources that families can access online. Here is a list of a few that won’t just facilitate the growth of your child’s imagination but yours as well.
Virtual Disney/theme park rides.
If you search “virtual Disney rides” on YouTube, you are virtually transported to the park itself. From the thrill rides to the ones that are more toddler friendly, there are options for the entire family. There are dozens of options, all giving a unique point of view experience. Here are a few links to help get you started:
