Saving Your Sanity in Times of COVID-19

Talk of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is everywhere. At Green Kid Crafts, we know the news can be overwhelming – it is for us too. If you’re in an area where schools are closing and social distancing has been encouraged, you may suddenly find yourself trying to balance work and keeping the kids entertained at home.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve built a community of educators, parents, and ambassadors that have helped us create a collection of activities that inspire children.

We’d like to share these resources and offer support.

 

Reminder: Check Reputable News Sources

In times of panic, misinformation can make things worse.  Please make sure you’re following reputable news sources:

Centers for Disease Control & Prevention

World Health Organization
