DIY Kits for Kids to Make Pizza, Pottery, Flower Arrangements and More at Home
Here are some suggestions for a few DIY activities and take-home kits for kids that will make you feel like parent of the year.
The kids have been home from school for a week and a half, and we’ve reached the point where they are officially driving their parents crazy. Distance learning is in full effect, which can stress out both the kids and the adults at home, especially if parents are working remotely during this time. It helps to get outside for some playtime and a bike ride, but the weather isn’t cooperative every day. For those days when kids are simply bored and you feel guilty allowing more screen time, we have suggestions for a few DIY activities and take-home kits that will make you feel like parent of the year. From making pizza at home to painting pottery and creating beautiful flower arrangements, pick up one of these kits to keep kids occupied at home.

Tot Spot in Riverside may be closed due to COVID-19, but that doesn’t stop the playroom for coming up with solutions for busy parents.

Tot Spot hopes these bins can help stimulate educational play and fun at home, giving kids that much-needed sense of normalcy, while giving parents a much-needed mental break.
