21 Activities for Families with Quarantine Cabin Fever

It may seem overly cautious to self-quarantine if you aren't sick, but the best way to keep the virus from spreading is to participate in social distancing as much as possible. As more and more school are closing, as well as work places, parents are being left with high anxiety and kids with cabin fever. 

Firstly, parents should feel no shame in having more leniency on routines and rules when it comes to accommodating the chaos of the self quarantine. Independent play? Screen time? Quite reading time? Yes, yes and yes!
