Free Online Learning Activities to Keep Your Kids Busy

Whether or not you have a degree in education, if you have kids, you’re now a teacher. Fortunately there are many online resources to keep them entertained. Some have always been free; others are now gratis thanks to companies dropping paywalls while schools are closed. You can take your kids on a virtual museum visit, secretly teach them chemistry with cooking, and get some phys ed into their days with digital dance-offs. Best of all, a lot of these are self-directed, so you can get work done or take some time for yourself while your kids are having fun and getting educated.
