Covid-19 has our lives in upheaval. It's changing everything, and causing stressors we never knew existed.
I keep seeing one constant need: Whether you've suddenly found yourself teaching home school, alone and isolated, or a parent of special needs children (like me), it seems we're all desperate to find fun things to do while social distancing.
Some of us can go out and enjoy a walk, others are in quarantine. This Utlimate Guide to Social Distance-friendly Activities and Fun has something for everyone.
Helping someone else is one of the best ways to distract from stress. These are simple and fun ways you can serve while having fun AND maintaining social distance during Covid-19.
Virtual Tours and Field Trips
Coronavirus has put us all on lockdown. Why not "get away" from a little bit with one of these great virtual tours and field trips? (You don't have to tell the kids how educational these activities are!)
“Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it.”
-President John F. Kennedy
