It’s heeerrrreeee! I’ve been scouring the internet, curating a really INTERESTING + CREATIVE resource that would excite our Declaration HOME TRIBE... A collection of super creative, high vibe, mostly FREE resources to help you and your family get through this new age of self-quarantine-life with a semblance of our sanity still intact.
I’ve tried my best to organize the links into categories to make it as user friendly as possible... scroll, click, GO!
I’ll be adding to this list over the course of the next few weeks, so be sure to check back often... and please SHARE with me any resources that you’ve come across and are enjoying! You can email me your suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
