6 active games kids can play with a pair of socks

COVID-19 has forced Canadian families into isolation at home, and it’s extremely important for everyone’s health that we do this.

However, it’s also important that we stay physically active during this stressful time. It’s essential for the physical, mental, and emotional health of parents and children alike.
