Something for the kids during this period of “home schooling” – for which I wish you the best of luck. Loads of these links I’ve gathered from various parent forums, and schools. I’ve tried to mark those that cost or have specific geographic reference. Do check before passing to your kids that it is appropriate for them (and you).
