In 2018, we started a series here on Hope 4 Hurting Kids called Fidgets 101. As we continue to spend time in our house, and my now 12-year-old son and I were sorting through our collection of fidgets the other day, I began to think about fidgets and coronavirus. Given the change in structure, extra time that many of us find ourselves trying to fill, anxiety and everything else going on, it seems like fidgets could be a valuable tool in helping children, and adults, deal with the emotional impacts (and boredom) of the current pandemic. To that end, we a reviving the Fidgets 101 series. Starting this Thursday, and every Thursday thereafter, we will be featuring a detailed look at, and review of, one specific type of fidgets. We will continue to tag Covid-19 in our posts so these posts will show up in the emotions section of our Covid-19 page as we believe that fidgets are a good investment for helping your kids to deal with the impacts of the current pandemic.
