How to stay sane as a parent in lockdown #COVID-19 / Practical resources and fun tips and tricks

#COVID-19 has just got real. Schools are closed and the UK is in lockdown.  On a personal note, we’ve already had to self-isolate for 14 days (before the lockdown) as my son had a fever and cough and was not allowed to go back into nursery – so we’re really feeling the pressure now #helpme

We asked the community for help! How do we stay sane working from home or (literally) staying at home with our kids knocking around?

Here are a few practical (and not very practical but funny) tricks and tips….
