How to keep kids busy at home so you can work from home


WFH without getting distracted by social media, continuous coronavirus news updates, or that beautiful sunshine that keeps begging you to come out, is hard enough for anyone.

Add an energetic 4-year-old into the mix, and you might find logging onto your fifth Zoom meeting quite the challenge.

Don’t worry. You’re not the only one scrambling to find ways to transition your kids (no matter what the age) into at-home life. 

So, first things first. After you’ve had your morning coffee do what all schools do well: Make a routine. Kids are used to following a schedule, they need one. And making a blueprint for the day will help everything fall into place. It’s a lot easier than you might think. Grab a pen, paper and actually map out how the days will look at home.

To help you start your kids at home schedule, Scholastic has created a free learn-from-home site with 20+ days of learning and activities.
