Let’s face it, if you have younger children at home, this summer is already starting to feel like the longest yet. Obviously, around March or so, we were flung into the responsibility of not only being a parent but an at-home teacher – a role that was probably new to a lot of us. However, this time has been really precious to me because we are able to spend so much time together as a family, but I can definitely see Hazel and Capri getting restless from constantly being stuck at home. Luckily, with just a few clicks, you can get some really amazing toys and activities for your children from Amazon. I promise the following will keep your kids busy and cure their boredom while also including a bit of constructive education!
