Family Activity

1. Make a cardboard fort

Take a hint from Kim Kardashian-West and put those empty Amazon boxes out in the garage to good use!


2. Rainbow pictures

Create your own rainbow pictures to spread positivity. Put them in your windows to spread cheer and encourage others to stay safe!


3. Set up a treasure hunt

Treasure hunts are pretty easy and depending on how many items there are, could last a while. Hide anywhere from 10 to 20 items around the house or outside to keep kids occupied for a few hours.



4. Have an indoor picnic

Grab a sheet, whatever food you have, and enjoy a living room picnic (without the ants). You can even play that memory game at the same time: “I’m going to a picnic and I’m bringing…” Each person takes turns remembering (in order) what everyone is bringing and then adds one thing each turn.
