With so many parents continuing to work from home this year, it's important to establish a good routine at home for kids and grown-ups alike. However, it's also essential that we have some fun this year!
To lend a helping hand, After School Hub provides an hour of fun-filled afterschool activities for primary school kids every weekday at 3:20pm on RTÉ2. Watch it back on RTÉ Player.
This Friday's show will be extra special as Education Minister Norma Foley will be dropping by to issue a no homework pass to the children of Ireland, meaning that they can skip their homework for a day, without getting in trouble!

The show, which coincides with UNICEF's World Children's Day, will see the minister being interviewed by Seamus the Dog - a very important interview indeed. You can see a clip of their chat above.
"It’s a golden ticket and this is how it’s going to work," she explains, "all the students I know have been really good and have been working very hard since they went back to school."
"Their teacher will decide what day the children can use it someday between now and Christmas. The children and young people of Ireland have been just fantastic. We’ve very very proud of them and this is a thank you."
Elsewhere on the show, Norma Foley invites primary school children to send pictures to the Department of Education so that she can hang them on the easel in her office. Everyone who sends in a picture will receive a certificate.
The Homework pass is available for download at RTE.ie/learn.
Tune into After School Hub this Friday at 3.20pm on RTÉ2.
