Most kids are at home now and social media is filled with pictures of what this means for families around Australia and the world. For some, this means timetables and every moment accounted for. For others, it's screens, backyards, games and fun.
What's it meant to be? Does it have to be one or the other?
The Quicky has sought out some people who are used to coming up with things for kids to do - a homeschooling mother and a playgroup facilitator. They've come up with a bunch of things for you to do with the kids to help those hours go by.
