If you are told to stay at home and you have kids, you are probably looking for things to do.

We compiled a list of different things that may help you pass the time:

Florida Aquarium SEA-SPAN
The Tampa attraction is hosting a daily Facebook Live while it is closed due to coronavirus. It will be broadcast at 10 a.m. each day to keep you up to date on happenings at the aquarium. On March 17, you can watch to see the lemurs celebrate.

Tour through famous museums
Sure you can't leave your house but don't let that stop you from enjoying all our world has to offer. Travel and Leisure put together a list of museums that offer virtual tours.

St. Patrick's Day fun!
Ok, so the kids aren't hunting for leprechauns or gold in their classrooms but you could still do it from home. Get creative! Make a scavenger hunt. Find some sort of box in your house and fill it with goodies the little ones can find. Make even a piece of gold chocolate if you have it.

Learning at home
There are tons of websites for educational activities for kids. We found this Facebook post detailing a bunch of websites you could try.

Get on a schedule
Maybe that doesn't sound like the greatest plan but it can be really helpful for kids. BusyToddler.com came up with a schedule that can help you plan your days.

30-day LEGO challenge
We found this one that could be fun! Take the 30 day LEGO challenge and make something new every day.
