While you might be sitting at home with the kids and wondering how to keep them occupied – spare a thought for the Hann's.
Speaking to the Sunday Post, the parents have revealed what they're planning on doing to ensure their household doesn't plunge into chaos.
Getting out in the garden, doing some DIY and signing up to Netflix are some of the activities high on their list.
Mrs Hann, 50, who works in a cafe, said: "It’s a little bit crazy, a little bit chaotic and a little bit scary, but it’s actually nice to get back to being a family.
"Usually everyone is in and out at different times for work and school but now we are all stuck at home, we are getting back to a routine and it’s mad, but in a lot of ways not such a bad thing.
“We’ve had to adjust with introducing rules and a bit more routine and activity, but we’re surviving and working well together.
"It just shows you how strong the family bond can be.”

But the Hanns, who are Mormons, say they have split up chores to get on with around the house on a daily basis.
They also admit they're encouraging the kids to work as a team and to keep up their exercise, such as walking the dog, Buster.
Emma added: "We now have some conditions, like no TV if the house isn’t tidy, and the kids need to clear away their own dishes after meals and take turns helping prepare dinner for the rest of the family.
"We aren’t really doing home-schooling. We have a few learning apps and homework packs, so are working through those a little every day, although the schedule isn’t rigid.
"It would be too hard to keep that many kids in check all day long.”
