By Staff Writers, 7 April 2020 , Comments

Keeping children entertained can be a challenge – especially in these times of self-isolation and social distancing. 

With school holidays coming up, Northcott ECEI is sharing some ideas to entertain youngsters at home.

They also share with us some other useful resources to prompt discussion about the current global situation with young people and support them to navigate through the pandemic.

Digital tools for young people

  • Bite Back | An online space to help young people build resilience in an interactive environment
  • iBobbly | Free app to build positive mental health and wellbeing in young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
