We hope you haven’t started pulling your hair out since you’ve been home quarantined with your hyperactive kids. To all the parents who have suddenly found themselves working around a classroom schedule and taking on the role of teacher for their kids’ various subjects, we salute you!

Fortunately, a number of personalities are sharing their talents with their communities during these trying times. Actress and artist Solenn Heussaff — who’s no stranger to working with children since she started the ‘Kids Take HeaART’ project with Studio Soliven roughly two years ago — recently shared a fun DIY activity via Instagram. All you need is acrylic paint (or spray paint), brushes, super glue, jars, and as Solenn says, “a touch of creativeness.”

Renowned artist and creative director of Esteé Lauder Companies Donald Robertson also shares his tips and tricks (with some humor) on his IGTV show ‘Donald.’

On the fourth episode of ‘Donald’ dubbed ‘Imagination Pokémon’ he teaches his adorable sons to get artsy with tape instead of paint — keeping them busy minus the mess.

Maayan Zilberman is the founder of Sweet Saba, a New-York based candy line of treats that emulate real objects. Her handmade sculptures have made their way into Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and The Met Gala’s ‘Heavenly Bodies’ theme, in a collaboration with Versace, among others. Check out her IG Stories for some lessons on basic candy making.

With these fun activities, you’re sure to keep your kids (and yourselves) entertained — at least for a few hours. So get to it and good luck!
