A mother in Kentucky came up with a creative solution to keep her children focused as they begin remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Angelina Harper, a special education teacher, made DIY work stations for each of her children, reported Good Morning America.

The mother crafted stations for each of her children, Aubrie, 8, and twins Peyton and Paige, 6.

Harper shared the pictures of her creation on Facebook, where it reached hundreds of thousands of interested viewers.

"I think it's something so many families can relate to," Harper said. "I'm trying to figure out what's going to work in our home. Some families might say, 'We have limited space, limited resources.'"

Both Harper and her husband Adrian have been working from home during the COVID-19 global outbreak.

When Harper found out that her children would participate in remote learning, she wanted them to feel comfortable.

The mother went to the store and bought foam boards and cut them in half. Each work station has a name, pouches to keep their daily schedules, a light, a calendar, and a hook for hanging headphones.

On each station, Harper added words of encouragement like "You can do this," "Take a break," or "We love you."

Harper shared that it cost her under $20 to make the learn-from-home station. She purchased many of the items from the dollar store.
