In times of global uncertainty, it feels tremendously reassuring to see communities come together in efforts to spread joy and creativity. We understand the news right now is challenging to engage with, and many families are working hard to stay on top of their full-time jobs as well as keeping their children busy. So we set out to find ways to keep kids (and adults!) busy and creative. Best of all? Each of these tips are offered at no cost from the fitness pros, artists, educators, and musicians offering them.

Looking for more?

Order our Play It! and Built It! series. Put those LEGOS to good use and learn to build all kinds of intricate structures and landscapes with your kids. Or keep up those music lessons by following along to the Play It! guides. 

You can download the E-book today and have it sent straight to your mobile device.

We hope these four ways offer a little inspiration to your social distancing routine(s). It’s a challenging time for everyone, so knowing people are looking after one another in the community can help bridge the distance we’ve all been prescribed to.
