Educational Projects

If your kids are home but their school has not implemented remote learning, or if their extracurricular programs have been canceled, there are a number of projects you can do from the comfort of your own home—many of which use supplies you likely already have around your house.

Book Recommendations

It’s important to create consistency with reading to help foster a love for books and continued development in your child’s skills. ACTIVE Kids has a number of book recommendation articles on a wide variety of subjects, from books about sports to ones about Women’s History Month.

Fun Activities

It can’t be all school and learning all the time when it comes to entertaining your kids at home. The following articles provide ideas for entertaining your kids indoors, just like you might on an ordinary rainy day or when school is cancelled because of snow.

Staying Active

Just because you can’t take the kids to their weekly sports practice or to the localYMCA doesn’t mean you can’t get in a little exercise. There are a number of at-home exercises, cardio sets and workouts the whole family will enjoy working up a sweat to.

Set yourself up for success.
