We are all in different situations during this time and I’ve found some positives and negatives. I’ve loved spending more time with my family and I’ve found myself having more time to enjoy the outdoors. North Carolina just learned that kids will not go back to school this year which makes some kids happy and others upset. I know my dogs are enjoying me being at home but at the same time may be getting sick of our 3 walks a day, lol. What are the pros and cons you have found to being home during COVID19?
A lot of our normal everyday ways of life have changed since COVID19 struck. I’m learning to adapt to things that come my way and finding new ways to do things. For example, I’ve learned the art of stick-on nails, facial masks, and vegetarian cooking at home. What are some of the things you’ve learned during COVID19 that you had not done previously?
My son’s homework in art class this week really opened my eyes up to how nature can be used in art. We went around the yard picking up anything we thought could fix into a picture such as branches, leaves, flowers, grass, etc. Each art piece can be made to look like something or just a design. We laid ours out on the driveway for a picture but it can be placed on paper as well. It’s a great way to get outside and see what the outdoors has to offer with all its beauty and turn it into a gorgeous art piece.!
With a quarantined Easter approaching, I’ve been thinking about fun ideas to fill my son’s Easter basket with. This year will be much different than before as I’m going to need to use things in my house I may have or that I can order online quickly. Things such as snacks in the house he loves but may not get often, electronic gift cards, and coupons for fun things to do when this quarantine ends are some ideas that come to mind! Dipping pretzel sticks in a melted pot of chocolate chips and adding sprinkles to the top is a quick easy idea to replace the chocolate bunnies you may not have this year. Another fun idea is to make sugar cookies in Easter shapes and let your child decorate them for their Easter basket. Using food coloring to color hard boiled eggs is always a hit! A coupon to rent a movie your child has been wanting to see (include popcorn and candy) on Netflix, plastic eggs filled with cash, your child’s favorite drink (Gatorade, flavored water, etc.), a coupon for your child’s favorite dinner, an ice cream party, or a spa night are a few more ideas. There are lots of fun ways to make your child’s Easter perfect even during the quarantine!
