How’s it going? Need help adjusting to your children being home during school hours? We don’t have all the answers but we have some suggestions. Becker’s created a product list of ready-to-use games, activities, tools and resources to get you started. It’s organized so that you can do a quick browse for items that might work for you. We did our best to feature items that are less than $30 knowing that you didn’t get a surplus materials budget when you took this “job”!
