Take Home Kits for Kids: Holiday Season 2020

These take-home kits from Columbus businesses will give your family a fun and unique activity to complete at home this season!

2020 Blah Blah Blah. This is what I feel like saying this year. LOL I was having an online conversation with some friends about how if I hear the word “pivot” one more time I am going to puke. But the truth is, very few businesses are surviving 2020 without pivoting. Myself included. Did I ever expect to be doing lists of things to do with your kids at home? NO! That’s exactly why I started this blog. But I digress.

These businesses are pivoting during the holiday season, many of them offering things to do at home that would have otherwise been done in-store. Yay us! So thank you to these businesses for offering a slice of fun for us to take home and entertain the otherwise feral kiddos. 😉

Here are some local businesses that are offering take home kits for families (or anyone, really) who want to support local AND still enjoy some of their favorite activities!
