Your kids might have been looking forward to exciting summer camps, so having to spend the entire summer, confined within your house can be a bit nerve-wracking! So what if they cannot attend summer camps across the city? They can certainly attend them from the comfort of your home!

Looking for some fun ways to keep your kids engaged during this lockdown? Here is a unique kid’s activity book to help you out!
