Board Game Challenge!

Wow, I thought keeping kids entertained during regular school holidays was hard! The restrictions we are experiencing these school holidays as a result of Covid-19 are adding a whole new dimension to fighting school holiday boredom… For our family, adding some routine into our day has helped to get us through the week. These pockets of activity have given the kids something to look forward to, breaking up the long days at home.
