    Staying Entertained at Home

    During the past couple of months, we have been asked to stay at home when possible. It can be
    challenging to keep everyone entertained when we aren’t able to go out of the house except to
    work in essential jobs, enjoy fresh air, and get groceries. Luckily, there are plenty of fun
    activities that the entire family can do together at home. Here are a few to inspire your own
    family to make lasting memories while spending quality time together at home.

    1. Movie Night—This is a simple activity that everyone will enjoy. Every time you have a
    movie night, let a different family member pick their favorite. That way, everyone will
    have a turn choosing something to watch in the coming weeks. Better yet, consider a
    movie marathon over the weekend and allow each family member to choose one leg of
    the marathon. Don’t forget to bring popcorn and treats. In fact, make it part of the activity
    and make a delicious treat as a family to share during the movie.

    2. Homemade Pizza—Many families have a tradition of ordering pizza once a week (or
    when no one feels like cooking). Do things a little different while you’re all at home
    together and learn to make pizza at home. Choose one type that everyone enjoys, or let
    everyone make a personal-sized pizza and add whatever toppings they’d like. Learning
    to make pizza at home is also an excellent opportunity to teach your kids, or yourself :-), a new skill.

    3. Backyard Camping—Just because your vacation options are limited, doesn’t mean you can’t
    have a family outing in nature. Involve the whole family in setting up the tents and
    sleeping bags in your yard. Have a campfire, sing songs, tell stories, and roast
    marshmallows. Before bed, take some time to admire the stars. The best part is that
    everyone can get ready for bed in the house, and it’ll be easy to make a delicious
    breakfast when everyone wakes up in the morning.

    4. Dance Party—Make a playlist of your family members’ favorite songs. Gather together
    in one room and dance to your new playlist. It’ll be a great way to laugh together and let
    go of any stress you may be feeling at the moment. It’s also a great way to get moving
    and get some exercise!

    5. Art Night—Bring out the crayons, pencils, watercolors, and paper. Come up with a
    theme, such as summertime, animal friends, or family portraits. It’ll be fun to see what
    everyone comes up with while allowing them to get creative.

    During an uncertain time, it can be challenging to know how to keep everyone
    entertained. However, it’s the perfect opportunity to make memories and do things that you
    don’t always have time to do together. Cherish these fleeting moments with your loved ones.
