陌陌飞艇多少币Parents are really feeling the impacts of coronavirus. Schools are closed, kids are bored, and whatever resources you may have had to care for them have likely dissipated. Whether you're working from home, working outside of the house doing essential tasks, or just trying to keep the kids occupied with fewer resources, it's hard. Luckily, the internet is full of activities to stream that'll keep your kids entertained while you get some work done (or enjoy a moment of quiet.)
陌陌飞艇多少币Many of these activities can be just popped on the TV or tablet and leave your kid to their own devices. Others are better executed under your watchful eye, but in those cases, these streams do most of the work for you.
If you're looking for a little inspiration, we've rounded up everything from physical activity classes to educational tools to music, art, and reading streams. While these streaming activities will never fully take the place of a full, functioning community, we hope they can ease the stress a little. Maybe you'll even be able to sneak in a shower.
