Activities for the long afternoonsDonate Now
Nido de Esperanza | New york, NY
My husband lost his job in construction in late March when New York City ground to a halt. We have two children, ages 5 and 2.5 years. I have been trying to stay positive and use this time with my children well. We read lots of books and do lots of craft projects. But the days are long. I am working on potty training my youngest as it would be a big financial help if we didn’t have to buy diapers. I am really nervous about the winter and not being able to go outside because of the pandemic. I would love to purchase a Lego Duplos Superhero set for my little one and a Lego Firestation set for my older son. I think this might give them a good activity during the long afternoons. I would love to be able to buy some more basic blocks and building materials too so they can create different structures. Finally, it would be wonderful if I could buy a turkey for Christmas Eve dinner. It is a lot to ask - thank you for thinking about us.
