My kids were supposed to return to school today bu-t they stayed home as the school closed due to the freezing temperature. Keeping my kids busy when they are at home is quite a challenge. Although they have gadgets, I make sure that they do stuff like reading a book, playing board games, and do arts and crafts.
My eight year old daughter is pretty good with chess and my son is starting to learn how to play it. Today, my daughter taught her brother some tricks.
