    Got your kids at home from school? Trying to work at the same time? Don’t panic. These resources can help.

    Get Crafty

    Founders of this site had the clear idea that children become their “best selves” by using their creativity and imagination; developing their reading, thinking, and reasoning skills; and learning to treat others with respect, kindness, and sensitivity. Behold this comprehensive collection of games, recipes, crafts, jokes, riddles and activities that will keep your little ones engaged.

    Get Innovative

    When it comes to keeping toddlers entertained, the games you play need to be easy to set up, require minimal supplies and hold their attention for as long as possible. You’ll find a wealth of useful info that will keep little ones from whining and asking ‘but why?’ 50 times while you’re trying to send important work emails. These panoramic, 360 views of the Cradle of Humankind should offer the perfect mini-expedition for your kids.

    Get Galactic

    Remind yourself – and your kids – there is an entire galaxy beyond the walls of your home and explore the surface of Mars. This site lets you experience a 3D replica of the surface of the Red Planet, as it was recorded by the Curiosity Rover’s digital photographs with two stereoscopic camera systems.

    Get Reading

    Does your child have a favourite book that they beg you to read every night? Delve into this wealth of literary (and not so literary) gems read by famous people. This award-winning children’s literacy website streams videos featuring celebrated actors (including Kevin Costner and Annette Bening) reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations.

    Get Musical

    This portal explores music and its connections to science, maths, art and more. It also combines it with dance and live instruments. Best of all, the Song Maker experiment lets your young rock star make and share their own songs.

    Get Cooking

    Let them liberate their inner chef — while they get to cook a great-tasting meal. This site offers wealth of age-appropriate recipes that will help your kids master their cooking skills – and progress in difficulty as your child gets more experienced in the kitchen. Each challenge comes with how-tos, clever tips and conversation starters.
