We couldn’t possibly let Unicorn Day come and go without proper celebration… especially since a little magic goes a long way these days. Grab your kids, the sparkles, and join us!

We know that staying home during COVID19 can be a challenge. Therefore, each day schools are closed, (cool) progeny will offer easy activities to keep the the whole family engaged. If you try any of these activities, post pictures to Facebook and Instagram and tag us (#coolprogeny and @coolprogeny). After all, we’re all in this together!

You can download a PDF of these ideas here.
