3 Activities for Families at Home during COVID-19

As a Mom (and my mom, as a Grandma), we have felt the stress of COVID-19 this year. My kids are out of school and we haven’t been able to see extended family or friends in too many months. We have found a few products and activities that we are glad to recommend. Check them out and let us know what you think!

1. For 1-12 Mo: Developmental Activity Cards by Curious Baby

Developed by parents along with a team of pediatricians and medical experts (full disclosure: my sister), these helpful playtime activity cards contain 40+ developmentally-stimulating ideas for how to spend quality educational time together from birth to 12 months. They are a great gift idea for new parents at home during quarantine, and a helpful resource for grandparents who are helping out with childcare and need ideas for infant playtime. (Take 25% off this week for their launch sale). 

2. For 2yrs+: STEAM Arts & Crafts Subscription Box: Green Kids Crafts

If your kids are getting restless (read: lovingly driving you crazy), here’s an idea. Green Kids Crafts is a monthly box that comes to your door with 4-8 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) projects for kids ages 2-10 yrs. I love that their company was founded by a Mom and Environmental Scientist who is passionate about encouraging creativity and curiosity in kids from an early age. They’re offering 10% new subscriptions with code GREENSUMMER. Worth checking out.

3. For 3yrs+: The Preschool Box

Whether you are starting back at school or not, here’s a way to bring educational activities into your home. The Preschool Box is a monthly subscription that sends you activities, crafts, and books for fun with your kids. It’s curated by a Kindergarten teacher, and includes new material with focus skills each month. You can do the activities together with your kids, or encourage them to build independence. 

Happy learning!

Real customers say

I love this tool!

My 5 year old is now able to get himself (and his brother) out of his 5 point harness. This is huge since we are headed to kindergarten and I need him to be able to get out on his own in the drop off line.

Absolutely perfect product!

It does exactly what it is supposed to do and has made my life so much easier! With 6 grandchildren under the age of 5, it's a lifesaver! Thank you!

I'm thrilled with my gadget

This simple little tool has ended my "fear" of child car seats. The buckles are a "nail breaker" and nearly impossible for me to release.

Linda G.

No more broken nails

Love this. I've had so much trouble unbuckling our grandbabies seat belts. This helps so much.

Simple to use

My wife and I bought two for our parents. They made an immediate impact with the ease for our parents to get the their grandkids out of the car seats. They both leave them in their cars so they always have them.

What a life saver!!

This is the best purchase I have made by far. My grandson loves it, because every time I use it he says, go G`Ma you did it. I recommend the UnbuckleMe to everyone who uses a car seat.
