Make lockdown 40 a little less boring with free printables
Here we go again Victoria! Lockdown 4.0 is upon us, but we're well seasoned at this now and know the key is to keep busy. Having kids at home can make the transition harder, especially with online schooling. However, with these 5 handy free downloadable and printable activities, it will keep your kids entertained over the next few days.

1. Home Movie Night (or day!)

Movie Ticket Free Printables

Let's be honest, Disney and Netflix are getting a constant rotation in our house with this new lockdown. However, you can make it much more fun and interactive for kids by setting the scene. Set up a comfy area with pillows, blankets, or even a fort. Download and print these movie tickets, get the popcorn ready, and have a movie night (or a full day! No one is judging, we're in lockdown.)
