Now that online classes are done, are you looking for something fun to occupy your kids at home during the summer break?

Cartoon Network is offering a range of family-friendly online activities featuring well-loved cartoon characters, new shows, and merch that you can shop for easily online.

In a news release, Cartoon Network said that kids and their families would be able to embark on more than 150 home-based adventures on from now until June 27, 2021.

“The whole family can create specially themed “fun zones” in the comfort and safety of their homes to experience amazing bonding time over the holidays, weekends, for the next two months,” according to the channel.

Here’s a look at just some of the activities that Cartoon Network has in store at their microsite to keep the young and the young-at-heart occupied.
