Let’s face it: having to go through this quarantine with children at home can be… challenging. As much as we try to be imaginative and stay up to date with their schoolwork, there are times when we just run out of ideas. Or maybe we don’t want to listen to that same old theme song from the only tv show that seems to quiet them down. Either way, we want to help all the parents with this little list of films, books and activities your kids can take part on while you answer your work emails, finish up doing the chores, or simply relax without having to come up with new strategies to keep them busy.
Let’s hope this helps! And don’t forget to #StaySafeStayHome

The content is all in Spanish, so your kids can stay updated while improving their Spanish.
