PostHeaderIcon Summer is Officially Here!

Even if it it’s not June 21st yet, the official start of summer, it is definitely summer time here at OffAssist.

Yea! Barbecues, swimming, vacations… Cries of, “I’m bored!” ringing in the ears of work-at-home parents all over the country! We work at home to spend time with our kids, at least partly, but there is no denying that working from home gets a lot easier when they are school age.

With the work part of work-at-home in mind, here are a few sites we’ve rounded up that have either great ideas for entertaining the kids or look like good places to let the kids explore to give you a minute or two to meet those deadlines.

Work-At-Home Mom’s list of 15 Quick Activities to Keep Kids Busy While You Work

Great kid, not-so-great handwriting? Give ’em some practice. This site lets you create your own handwriting worksheets, including cursive!

Funology – Science and fun with both online and offline activities for kids (of all ages!)

I’m sure we’ll have more as summer progresses and the team gets more and more desperate to be both “working” and “parent”.

Happy Summer! Now, go out and play!
