Quarantine Survival Kits for Kids and Parents


In unprecedented situations, we need to call in reinforcements. For some of us, it’s the activities that hold our kids’ interest and for others, it’s a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones that can drown out the sound of Into the Unknown. Our team has pulled together some go-to items you’ll want in your Quarantine Survival Kit to help get you through the coming weeks with your sanity!

Quarantine Survival Kit for Young Kids

We’re getting creative here, parents. The old tricks aren’t working for situations like these, so we’ve turned to our fellow parents for ideas of what we need to stock up to make it through just one more day of quarantine!

Quarantine Survival Kit for Big Kids

The coloring pages and craft projects are all well and good for the little kids, but as our children grow, it takes a lot more to hold their attention. This is no time to adhere to things like screen time limits, parents. We’re pulling out all the stops to keep our big kids sane during trying times!
