This site has been on hiatus for a while due to life. This is a list I was compiling for our boys based on things friends and family have shared with us. I’ll add and remove as I get other resources. Our recent forced social distancing means the schools are closed, but we’re wanting our kids to do more than just Nintendo Switch, YouTube and Lego. Those are all still happening, but here are the educational resources we’ve been compiling.

For now, the list is just that — just a list. I’ll try to update with reviews and added information. Yay — living documents!

Disclaimer: We have not reviewed the majority of the links and content here. Please comment if links are broken or inappropriate. We’d also love help classifying links for age ranges, etc.
