Top 35 Youth Trends in May

From Printable Coloring Books to At-Home Education Kits

— June 3, 2020 — Life-Stages
The May 2020 youth trends are centered around topics like homeschooling, indoor entertainment, virus educational sessions, and more. These products and initiatives are a direct response to the global concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

While some companies like Adobe are offering entertaining and printable coloring books to help pass the time at home, others are trying to teach kids about why physical distancing is important at this time. Many companies are using their well-established platforms to give children tips on how to behave during the COVID-19 outbreak. Cartoon Network has infused its content with some educational info about the virus, for example. The popular video game Minecraft, on the other hand, has launched an interactive pandemic simulator map to engage kids with hands-on activities. Through it, players are able to see how different social distancing measures play out for a population, and more.
