    As this COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, we are all finding ourselves struggling to keep our sanity as we juggle working from home with our children and spouses. The kids are bored, going stir-crazy, and we are all coming down with cabin fever. Here are some ideas to survive the next few weeks at home. 

    • Put those empty Amazon boxes to use and make a cardboard fort. 
    • Set up a treasure hunt. Hide 10-20 items around the house. 
    • Bake together. Baking is a great lesson in measuring ingredients and making delicious treats. 
    • Have an indoor picnic. Grab a sheet and enjoy a living room picnic. Play a 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. 
    • It’s the perfect time to choreograph and film TikToks
    • Write a letter. Break out the envelopes, the stamps, the pens, and paper. Write and mail a letter to someone you love who lives far away. 
    • FaceTime with family and friends while practicing “social distancing.” Use it to check in on family members and socialize. 
    • Play cards. Rummy, War, Go Fish, Solitaire, Uno, or Old Maid. 
    • Play board games – Scrabble, monopoly, candy land, or connect four. 
    • Break out a jigsaw puzzle. 
    • Play checkers. 
    • Teach your kids how to play chess. 
    • Go for a walk or a bike ride. 
    • Play charades. 
    • Grab some canvases or paper, brushes, and paints, and do a paint night at home. 
    • Bird Watch. Identify 5 types of birds and then research them. 
    • What kinds of animals live near you? Make a list of all the animals you observe while looking out the window. 
    • Make a sticker book, then decorate it. 
    • Do Chores Bingo.  Squares can include “put away your clothes,” “brush your teeth,” or “put the dishes in the sink.” 
    • Make pasta jewelry. Paint it, thread it, and then wear it. 
    • Set up an Easter egg hunt. Make it educational by hiding letters inside the eggs instead of candy. Hide the plastic eggs around the house and see if your child can find the entire alphabet. 
    • Play tic-tac-toe. 
    • Solve a maze. Parents or older siblings can draw a maze on construction paper; the younger ones can try to solve it. 
    • When it’s time for movies, Frozen 2 is now streaming on Disney.
