FORT MYERS, Fla. — Actress, business owner, and mom, Haylie Duff is sharing a new online resource to help young families at home.
Due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, she says being any parent right now can be stressful.
That's why Duff is sharing a new, free online resource they use at home to keep little ones busy.
The website is called Print, Play, and Learn. It's a collaboration with HP, Education.com, and several others that wanted to help young families at home during the pandemic.
“Many parents have those worries in the back of their mind, like are they doing enough and are they doing things correctly. I certainly feel that way. It was the main reason why I wanted to partner with HP on this because this resource is so incredible not only for kids but for parents. It really took so much of the guesswork out of things for me," said Duff.
The site offers countless pages of worksheets, coloring, and puzzles that parents can download and print off for free at home.
Duff says she loves that it gives kids something fun to do while also learning.
The activities cover a variety of topics, such as animals, history, and writing.
Now more than ever, Duff says it's important for parents to share what works for them to help other families.
That's why she wanted to share the free printables, as well as advice she feels every parent needs to hear.
“We need to take a little of this insane pressure that we all put on ourselves to be these incredible parents that are doing everything right to just realize that this moment in time is not normal for any of us, and everybody is trying to navigate through it in the best ways that they can," said Duff.
Aside from her acting career, Duff is the co-founder of Little Moon Society. A children and women's clothing company where her daughters serve as her biggest inspiration.
She also is the cook behind The Real Girl's Kitchen, which started as a blog and turned into a cookbook and TV show on the Cooking Channel.
Duff says overall, her favorite job is being a mother to her two little girls, Ryan and Lulu.
