For the 2020 Blogging from A-Z Challenge, my theme was “Family Fun at Home”. I posted 26 pages of ideas and tips for keeping your family entertained at home, which included arts and crafts, games, learning ideas and imaginative activities for all ages. I thought it would be particularly useful while we’re all self-isolating or socially distancing, though it can be used for any time of year. You can find the entire list of posts below. I hope you enjoy them!
