It's been a tough 18 months for parents as they've been forced into homeschooling more than they probably would have liked, especially those in Melbourne like Bec Judd.

The 38-year-old is isolating with husband Chris Judd and homeschooling their four kids Oscar, 10, Billie, seven, and twins Darcy and Tom, four.

Taking to Instagram, Bec shared one way she's managed to keep Darcy and Tom occupied and it's budget-friendly!

In a video shared to her Stories, Bec filmed her sons using Kmart's Sparkle Gem Art Set, which only costs $5 and seemed to keep the boys busy for some time.

One of the boys wore a shark onesie with both twins sitting quietly as they concentrated on their artworks. 

This week Bec made an impassioned plea to have children return to school sooner rather than later.

The WAG shared a post written by Ninja Warrior host Rebecca Maddern addressed to Victorian premier Daniel Andrews that read: "OK it's time to find some balance. Victorians can't be locked down longer or harder. Cases are going up, Delta is different.

"We need to look after our kids. The amount of suicides and self-harm is rising – THIS is unacceptable. Get [vaccinated] ASAP but also find balance."

Bec added, "342 Victorian children are presenting to hospital EACH WEEK with mental health emergencies."

"Kids need to be back in the classroom (I'm not saying a blanket return. I'm saying let's come up with a safe plan ASAP)."

Those living in Melbourne have been subjected to more than 210 days in lockdown since the coronavirus pandemic first struck last year.

Bec was slammed last year when she shared a post of herself wearing a T-shirt that had the words "Free Melbourne" written across it.

She also came under fire for claiming a "small minority" of people were responsible for the outbreak.

"It’s so disappointing we find ourselves in this position because of a very small minority," she said. "Melbourne is still the best city in the world... Look after each other."
