Best Activity Kits for Families to Make Your Self Quarantine a Bit Easier (Most under $20)

Since I know most of us are self quarantining and may be struggling coming up with ideas of what to do, I spent quite a bit of time putting together some of our favorite family kits/activities. I'm sharing with the hope to promote intentionality, creativity, stress relief and fun during this time of uncertainty. One thing I love is that most of these suggestions are all in one kits, which makes life much easier not having to get a bunch of individual supplies! Aside from a few highly recommended Amazon items, our family has personally used the majority of items I'm recommending below. Please feel free to reach out if you have specific questions.
