The weeks ahead are unpredictable, but with the many school closures and businesses encouraging teams to work from home, we all know that cabin fever is imminent. So, we have a few ideas to keep you (and your littles!) occupied, while remaining safely at home.

Start a Houzz board and share it with us! We would love to see your #housegoals, and get a conversation started about what you are looking to accomplish in your next home renovation.

Home Schoolin'

With statewide school closures, parents are looking for activities to keep kids occupied by day, while presenting educational opportunities. With age-appropriate safety measures taken, light carpentry and crafts are a great way to talk about topics such as measurement, addition, division and geometry.

General Contractor, Ben Becker says, "We try to incorporate building opportunities whenever we can. Whether its a pre-fab[ricated] bird house from Amazon, or raised vegetable beds, the kids are always engaged, and it provides an opportunity to expose them to my craft." He adds, "Be sure that any tools you are using have a trigger lock to prevent any accidents."

A couple of things we recommend for carpentry with the little ones: safety goggles and ear muffs.
