  • Family

Life in lockdown isn’t easy. Life in lockdown as a parent, often juggling the blurred lines of work, parenting and homeschooling is a whole new level.

And it seems to ease the load, some parents are calling on virtual stand-ins to help entertain and educate their kids at home.

Airtasker, the place where you can get anything done, has revealed to ellaslist some of the requests it's been fielding since many Australian regions plunged into lockdown.

There’s been one NSW mum who requested a Zoom Lego play instructor to keep her kids entertained with fun Lego games and building challenges.

Another parent asked if anyone could create a Diary of a Wimpy Kid costume for her daughter.

And there’s been hundreds of parents using Airtasker to find skilled education professionals to assist their kids virtually with readingwriting and spellinglearning language and more.

And now, Airtasker even features a Working with Children Badge designed to help parents choose the best Tasker for the job.

So, the big question is: What would you offload if you could right now?
