With the recent COVD-19 situation, lives are disrupted and families may feel lost on what to do, or how to keep family fun going! The Caring for Each Other initiative by Sesame Street aims to support you and your family through these stressful times.
From school closures to self-imposed home quarantines, the COVID-19 situation has disrupted the lives of many families. In these stressful times, it is important to keep our spirits up so that we may care for our little ones too.
Sesame Street - Caring for Each Other
To support parents for the duration of this crisis, Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organisation behind Sesame Street, is offering a broad variety of free resources to help children and families during the coronavirus pandemic through the Caring for Each Other initiative.
The resources have been designed to help parents provide comfort and manage anxiety, as well as help with creating routines, fostering playful learning at home, and staying physically and mentally healthy.
What to expect?
You can expect content featuring the Sesame Street Muppets sharing messages of love and kindness, playful learning activities, and virtual playdates launching soon.
There will be online games, printables to take offline, videos on love and support, and in general a library of ideas to spark playful family moments!
Mindful that the adults who care for children need support too, the resources are intended to help caregivers as well as children. The aim of these resources is to help you and your family breathe, laugh and play together!
Content will be updated on a regular basis, so stay tuned for more!
