27 KID ACTIVITIES THAT USE EVERYDAY SUPPLIES

Need ideas for activities and crafts that require everyday supplies? No glitter, no hot glue gun, no pom-poms. This is an excellent list of educational activities and crafts that can keep your kids busy while school is closed because of Coronavirus/ Covid-19 but use only things you probably already have on hand. These activities and kids’ crafts require things most families have on hand or can pick up on their now less frequent trips to the grocery store; everyday supplies like post-it notes, Lego, paint, paper, and crayons.  These activities have a wide age range, the Connect The Dots Math is definitely for school-age kids, but you could change the equations to just numbers like a traditional connect the dot and voila it’s for a preschooler! So scroll through and find the right activities for your children and the supplies you have on hand.
