Social distancing—such hard words for young children to understand. When their biggest job right now is to be social, distancing is crazy to them and to their natural development!  I had struggled for a long time on how I should do this one and my mom actually told me to teach it like an airplane! Thanks MOM! I LOVED that idea! 

Kids love to make believe and being an airplane fits right in!  If they have their fun “arm wings” they will know how far apart to stay from other people! And if the other person also has wings on it should be a little less than 6 feet apart! 

I hope your child can relate to Tommy somehow and if they don’t watch this, maybe you can get an idea of how to teach them about it.  Share with someone whose child could benefit from this lesson and as always, thanks for watching!
