Cookie decorating, virtual museum tours help kids keep busy while stuck at home

With no physical classes at East Carolina University to worry about at the moment, junior Madison Resavy is back home in Holly Springs working on her side hustle. Resavy is making Easter-themed cookie kits for parents and children to decorate together -- an idea that spawned from Instagram.

"I was scrolling and I saw something kind of similar to it and I was like that would be a really good idea because everyone is stuck inside. So I figured that would give the parents something to do to occupy their kids. So I thought, 'oh, that's a really good idea,' so I just posted it and bought all my ingredients and just went to it."

The cookie kit is a hit. Resavy sold 35 last week and has another order for next week. She's always loved to bake and is happy to provide the service for her neighbors.

Resavy's two brothers have a lawn-care business and her mom, Christa, owns a Burn Boot Camp gym in Albany, New York The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

"I guess just seeing us hustle and work really hard, we've taught that to our kids," her mother said. "They can see what benefits you can reap from that so they have followed in our footsteps."

Resavy is studying interior design but hopes to one day own her own bakery.

If baking cookies isn't your thing, there are other activities for your children that don't involve food, such as virtual learning on museum websites.
