Minnesota Mom Creates Daily Challenge to Keep Kids Busy During the Coronavirus Staycation
#Truth - I wasn't mentally prepared for my three kids to be home. Throw in a husband that is working from home now too and me, and we basically have a recipe for an absolute meltdown...for someone. At this point, I'm not sure who will melt first but it could be me.
I thought I would get through at least one conference call without being interrupted or someone screaming in the background. My co-workers know I'm a mom and life is busy over here but I really don't need them to see all that is going on inside my house on the first day. My family had other ideas and right in the middle of our first conference call, they opened the door that had the sign on it that said "Do Not Talk To Me Unless it is an Emergency or You Are Bleeding". No one was bleeding and it wasn't an emergency.
Today is Day 1 of the Coronavirus Staycation for my kids and at 9:30 am I realized we needed to figure something out for them to do. THAT is how the "How to Keep Your Kids Busy" Challenge came to be.
Every day on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio - I'll have a video or a picture with the latest challenge for the day. I can't always say that this will happen at the same time of the day, because let's face it, life is unpredictable right now. It will be something to look forward to though and will hopefully be ideas that will help keep your kids busy too.
Day 1 - Today's challenge is all because of an e-mail that I got. I currently have 5,316 e-mails in my inbox (yes, that is true) but this one stood out. I share the e-mail and the challenge here! Even if you don't want to do the challenge, you should watch the video because my kid decides to make faces off and on through the whole thing, which I am finding out about now.
What should we do next for the challenge? I'm only semi-creative so I'm going to need some idea,s so please, send those to me on my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram.
