COVID-19: How to Create Daily Rhythms for Your Kids
School is out and home is in! What a great opportunity to take advantage of time with your kids. Okay, it may seem like a daunting task to figure out creative ways to fill your entire day, but we are here for you! We have created a daily guide to help you be intentional (and productive) during your time at home.
8 AM - Rise and Shine
Read your Bible, have breakfast, and get ready for the day!

Complete a portion of your schoolwork for the day sent by your teacher.
10 AM - Be Creative
Do an art project or craft activity with materials you have at home.
11 AM - Get Outside
Go on a nature walk, play ball, or ride your bike!
