    School took a back seat for little Aden and Avery lately. Andie and Kate kept their preschoolers occupied at home with board games and stories instead.

    Source of home-based learning? Good old workbooks. Occasional workouts? Swims and walks with Daddy.

    We did a double take at Fann’s post of her son with an endangered turtle in an inflatable pool. Until we realised it was a clever shot of Zed with a virtual creature, with the trending Google 3D Animals feature.

    This augmented reality experience, with a selected list of animals, will keep kids and adults entertained for hours. Zed also frolicked with an octopus and an anglerfish!

    And if you’ve not experienced Google 3D animal, this is how to launch it. But first, go to your phone settings and allow Google access to the camera.

    1. Type the name of an animal into the Google search bar on your mobile phone browser.

    2. Tap on a “See in 3D” button in the search results.

    3. The animal will appear on your phone screen, against the space where your phone camera is pointing.

    Music is inspirational and a wonderful companion. And it takes much more effort to create than to consume.

    So we can imagine the hours Zoe’s talented son had put into composing this tune she shared on Instagram. Watch it here!

    It brings to mind the touching Stay with Me, a song JJ Lin and Stefanie Sun wrote in tribute to frontline medical workers. What an inspiration to all children learning music.

    Letting the sun in to warm up her place – this was one of the eight things that Stefanie posted on her social media accounts.

    Watching Jaime and Renee do the TikTok dances makes us want to boogie!

    This pair seems to be having lots of fun at home. Building a living room obstacle course, playing the guitar and singing duets are some ideas we stole from them.

    Jacelyn’s son turned tutor at home, with Grandma his obedient student.

    He makes a mighty good teacher, putting together a word list and making Grandma go through a spelling test. What an educational way to bond with seniors. Watch it here!

    Five-year-old Brooklyn, with her own Instagram account managed by Daddy, is a star in the making. Staging a solo concert with natural lighting and belting out a Disney favourite looks like a good start.

    Remember how the Italians sang from balconies to keep their spirits up during the country’s lockdown? Watch Brooklyn perform here!

    Desserts never fail to bring on the smiles. Homemade ones are especially sweet.
