We are in such a weird time right now – full of unknowns. Many schools have or will be closing, leaving kids at home, or with a babysitter for weeks on end. With that in mind, I put together a list of what to order on Amazon Prime when school gets cancelled. This is not an all-inclusive list (and you definitely do not need to order everything (or anything), it’s more of a resource to give you some inspiration and (hopefully) some optimism about this upcoming change.
Many of these things can be bought in store, but shopping is a little intense right now. I know I am avoiding shopping as much as possible and don’t want to bring my kiddos along because people are desperate and making poor decisions.
Luck for us, there is Amazon Prime to the rescue! (Don’t have prime? You can sign up for a 30 day free trial here.)
I have put together a list of fun activities and art supplies to stock up on that will keep your kids busy and entertained! Make sure to also read our posts on best kids subscription boxes, 25+ cooking recipes for kids, and free educational resources for kids.
