school's out, kids are in 


with the unfortunate health circumstances our nation is facing due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), it is important that we continue to take the necessary precautions to protect our health and the health of others. with schools, restaurants, shops and everything in between being shut down, life can get a little crazy while we're cooped up in the house. 

luckily, kodomo has pulled out all of our favorite games, toys & activities for you and your littles to do at home. check out our suggestions on how to keep the kids entertained with arts and crafts, educational toys, coloring, and much more! 

from different coloring projects, to memory games, and colorable inflatable toys, OMY has so much fun & creative options to keep the kids busy!

sometimes even playtime starts to get a bit boring, there are still plenty of other ways to keep the kiddos busy! reading, learning how to cook, finding new music, listening to podcasts, etc. (don't tell them we said it, but) ... there is never a bad for cleaning/chores!
