Colorado dad and school principal Nicholas Holtvluwer had to get creative to entertain his three toddlers while he worked from home in Castle Rock on March 25.
“I got a lot of work to do … so this should keep the kiddos occupied for a while. They love carrousels!” the Mammoth Heights Elementary school principal said in a Facebook post accompanying this video.
The footage shows three children riding the ‘carousel’ — made up of bedding attached to a ceiling fan in order to form the carousel poles.
Holtvluwer told Storyful that working from home had presented a number of challenges.
“With the closing of schools and the ‘stay at home’ orders happening around the country due to the coronavirus, I have been tasked with conducting many online meetings and visiting online classrooms through Zoom and Google Hangouts.
“I tried thinking of a fun (and funny) way to keep my own kids occupied so I could get my work completed as a school administrator. So I created a make-shift carrousel!” Credit: Nicholas Holtvluwer via Storyful
