While collecting resources over the past few days on COVID -19, food allergies and celiac disease, I’ve been amazed at the extensive free resources available online.

A week ago, I saw a story on the Cherry Blossom webcam in Washington DC and thought, “What a great idea!”.  I realized that many people would miss the cherry blossoms because of social distancing but at least they could enjoy the trees via the webcam.

I wondered what other resources were available for children, teens and adults while many of us are sheltering in place.

As I scoured the internet and asked friends and family, I came up with this list of resources.

The list includes not only COVID-19, food allergies and celiac resources but stress reduction, educational and entertainment resources for our children, as well.  The last section includes links to “out of the box” activities to ignite your curiosity!

This is a growing and crowdsourced list.  Please add your favorite resources in the comments and return to discover new and exciting topics!
