Well, we were planning on spending this week in Utah exploring Zion National Park and the surrounding areas… but with everything going on right now and so much uncertainty, we decided to stay close to home.

Last summer I had put together a book of activities for our boys to do each day during their summer vacation. They had so much fun doing these projects each day, and I thought this quarantine period was a perfect time to bring this book back out. This book includes 30 different activities that are perfect for kids between the ages of 2-6.

I’ve also linked Amazon products below for the supplies throughout the book. Last Summer I ordered the supplied week by week, and a lot of the supplies (like baking soda and paint) will be used in multiple activities. We had so much fun doing these all — but our boys’ favorite was the erupting volcanos which we have probably done over 15 times since last summer. I printed this book out and had OfficeMax bind it, but the digital version is totally useable too!

How else are you staying busy with your family during these uncertain times?
