How to prepare to be at home with the Kids?

What is happening is crazy and  sad at the same time. As a mom I really don't have the answers to all the questions my boys are asking but one thing I know is that we have to be prepare in case we have to stay at home with them for a long time. 

 With all the family events canceling, sports activities putting on hold and a possibility of school being canceled you will need lots of activities and ideas. These are ideas that you could do with your family indoor or in your backyard. We hope this will keep the kids entertain during this State of emergency!

Please be safe! Maria :)
