WORRIED ABOUT HOMESCHOOLING? HERE'S 60 FUN ACTIVITIES TO KEEP THEM BUSY TO KEEP YOU ALL SMILING

With schools closing, home schooling your children may feel like a daunting prospect.


I created a daily routine that helps my children know what to expect; offering them a sense of consistency and security, check it out.


As for activities, we have 60 written on your chalk board.


We are using a child-led method which allows them the opportunity to choose the activities they wish to carry out during the day.
