In ideal circumstances, kids would enjoy having no school and being at home. But when you throw in online classes and no going out to play, it might not be a pleasant stay after all.

During this long-lasting lockdown, parents might have to conjure up all kinds of tricks to keep kids busy. So, we’ve decided to help you a bit with some free tools for your kids ranging from free audiobooks to movies.

  • Michelle Obama will be reading a classic children’s story every Monday on PBS lives.
  • If your kids are not satisfied with your bedtime stories, don’t worry. Disney’s bedtime hotline will help your kids sleep with messages from characters such as Micky Mouse and Goofy.
  • Audible is offering free audiobooks for kids including the Harry Potter and Philosopher’s Stone till schools open up.
