School’s out, and hunkering down at home means keeping little ones busy. So The Laundress staffers rounded up the activities, games, and tools they’re using to keep their kids (and themselves!) happy and entertained. Here, their genius, kid-approved tactics.
1. AUDIO BOOKS | AUDIBLE
A (free!) audio book subscription so your mini can listen to her favorite children’s books and discover new ones, too. For some visual storytelling, turn on Oliver Jeffers’s A Book A Day storytime videos.
2. 4 PIECE CUTLERY SET | ALFREDO
An über cute cutlery set that’ll turn snack time into a fun game.
3. CRACK & GROW KIT | EGGLING
Harness his green thumb with a tiny plant he can care for from the seeds up.

5. ORGANIC BABY RATTLES | ESTELLA
This NYC-themed rattle set is made with organic cotton, so you’ll feel really good about handing it over to your little ones.
6. SURFACE CLEANER | THE LAUNDRESS

9. GAME & COLORING ACTIVITY KIT | OMY
What kid doesn’t like coloring?! This giant coloring book “roll” will last them for ages. They can also practice freehand drawing alongside author Mo Williams, who does mesmerizing lunchtime “doodles” on YouTube.
10. PLAY MAT/QUILT | LOUELLE
A plush mat for babies to play or practice tummy time or for big kids to use for P.E. class. (It’s the best way to get out the wiggles!) Turn on a kid-appropriate fitness video like The Class by Taryn Toomey, which is offering a digital class for kids and grown-ups right now.
11. FABRIC FRESH BABY | THE LAUNDRESS
This soft vanilla and lavender mist has an instant calming effect. Spray it over your upholstery, curtains, linens, and clothing to refresh and remove odor.
