It’s a difficult time for us all as we continue to quarantine and practice social distancing. We know those of you at home with your kids are probably having an especially hard time right now. You’ve suddenly become a parent, a school teacher, and a playmate.
Since children don’t quite understand what and why quarantining is so important we’re sure you’re running out of ways to keep them occupied. Now more than ever people all over are banding together and getting creative. Many parents have taken to Facebook to share creative ways to help keep the little ones busy.
Free Fun In Austin continues to highlight Austin area locations and activities that may not be available at this time. We encourage you to take all safety measures to keep yourself and your neighbors safe. It is our hope that the stories and features on this site will help inform your plans in the future.
Hopefully one of these groups will help give you even more ideas to pass the time, or perhaps just connect you with other parents you can commiserate with.
Here are seven essential Facebook groups for parents during the quarantine.
- Kids Quarantine Virtual & Fun Activities
- Quarantine Kids
- Kid Quarantine Resources
- Ideas for kids during social distancing
- Activities for Kids! (Quarantine Style)
- COVID-19 Quarantine: Virtual Events for Kids!
- The Homeschool Parent: Coping with Kids Amid the Coronavirus Chaos
Each of these groups are open to the public and are great resources for crafts, projects, outdoor activities, and advice from parents and professionals on how to cope with it all.
