Between the wet weather (perfect timing, right?) and the call for social distancing, we’re all struggling to find ways to keep little ones entertained. For inspiration (and a little comic relief), we’re bringing you some ideas from our favorite LA celeb moms. Read on to see how Jessica Alba, Kristen Bell, Jenna Dewan and more are coping with quarantine boredom.

TikTok, Anyone?

Do we really know what TikTok is? Kinda, sorta—only after a quick Google search. Cool-mom Jessica Alba and daughter Havie bust some moves (is that a thing people still say?), while stuck inside. Here's how to host your own at-home dance party

It's a Sign!

Kristen Bell shares a "cool coloring project" by her and her kiddos. Looking for more at-home creative activities? Check out these 30 easy and fun paper crafts for kids.  

Strike a Pose

Nothing to see here. Just Busy Philipps and her daughter pausing for an impromptu photo shoot during a walk through the nabe.

Back to Nature

Break in the rain? Hit the trail (even if it's just around the block) like actress and Your Zen Mama Founder Sarah Wright Olsen. Click through the pics to see what her littles discovered along the way.

Beach Day

The Santa Monica Pier may be closed for now, but LA's beaches are* open—and most likely empty. So Selma Blair and her son Arthur were able to enjoy a solitary stroll on the sand. 

*Update: Since we first published this post, many of the area beaches have closed to enforce #SaferAtHome. We're urging everyone to follow the city's and state's guidelines.  

Hanging in There

Jenna Dewan's post says it all: "Day 2 of social distancing going well." We feel you.

Pet Project

When life gives you a Covid-19 lockdown, give your kid a... hamster?? That's what writer-director Kelly Oxford did, though she admitted in her post that Day 4 may have been a bit soon to go "full hamster." 

Thinking about getting your kid a pet? Here are the best critters for kiddos, when you don't want a dog or cat.
