Looking for ways to encourage and equip children and their families during this time? Wondering how to help parents and caregivers talk to kids about crises like coronavirus? You'll find a wide variety of excellent ideas below. 

Resources for Calming Anxiety and Fear:

Faith-Forming Activities Families Can Do While at Home Together: 

  • A Super Fun Way to Help Families Form Faith: Summer 2020 Edition provides your church with a simple way to encourage and equip families as they talk together,  talk together, laugh together, and meet challenges together. 

  • Sidewalk Chalk, a digital newspaper published by First Hamilton CRC using content submitted by members between the ages of 2-18, is a great example of building community when you can’t be together in person. The best part? If you’re over age 60 and without access to a device, it will be delivered to your doorstep. #intergenerational
