But it seems some parents are finding it difficult to entertain their children while in lockdown – and have taken to the internet to share hilarious snaps showing how their little ones are wreaking havoc.
Parents in the US and the UK, among other countries, revealed how their children have gotten themselves covered in mud, paint and toothpaste while left to their own devices.
