1. Mentally prepare your kids for having to keep a mask and/or shield on at all times.
Keep explaining until they are comfortable (there are plenty of videos now explaining the need for safe distancing and masks)
2. Have your safe distancing and sanitizing steps somewhere visual
You might also want to rehearse your safe distancing and sanitizing steps beforehand so that it is not overwhelming
3. Make safe distancing a game
While our kids have been so great with it, not being able to interact with friends and high five others is a lot to wrap their minds around. Do remember to reward them for their efforts in adjusting.
