Did you catch my Instagram story this morning? I shared the picture above on Instagram and while it started out as a bit of a joke, I quickly realized that it might actually be post-worthy.

I know that many of us are kind of facing an unprecedented series of unknowns right now. We have a weekly chalkboard calendar in our kitchen and that thing is typically CRAMMED with activities on any given week.  Right now? It’s a blank slate. We have nowhere to be. No obligations. (And if you think that I am complaining about this, boy you are wrong. I am embracing this wholeheartedly and accepting this gift to slow down and just BE.)

That being said, I know that many of us will be attempting to keep the kids up with some schooling while school is out. My kids will do some lessons each day (mostly school-provided) and after that, the day will be theirs. I am hoping for great weather so that they can be outside as much as possible. If we are stuck indoors, we have a pile of fun art and science kits from Christmas that we can blow through.

Don’t forget that I have 11+ years worth of kid friendly activities on this site!! Use them!! You can also grab my family bucket list with 50+ stay-at-home activity ideas. And while you’re at it, how about my 30 Day Declutter Challenge, should you find yourself with some extra time on your hands? Get outside (weather permitting), take a virtual museum tour, how about writing a letter to a soldier?

My Facebook group helped me to put together this list – some great suggestions for educational boredom busters, many of which would easily count as STEM or STEAM related activities, so that’s a total bonus!

As of the time I hit publish on this post, all of the suggestions below are available via Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. You won’t have to leave the house or mingle with crowds and if you order a few things today, they will arrive by Monday/Tuesday.
