With millions of people “sheltering in place” because of the Corona Virus, it’s a huge shift in how we normally live. Being isolated does not have to mean being disconnected. It’s a good time to use that old communications tool: the telephone, and call the people you care about. This includes family, friends and co-workers. Just checking in on each other and offering support will help to ease the frustration and depression that can come with this sort of drastic change.
Many are at home with family– day and night. It’s a rare opportunity to do things together. You can’t say you don’t have time. We’ll be posting fun and simple ideas for your family to do on this blog. Here’s the first one: BUILD A MINIATURE GOLF COURSE. See how creative you can be using household items. Anything can be used as an obstacle: books, cookware, chairs; use your imagination. Use any small ball if you don’t have golf balls. Using small rubber “super balls” could be an added challenge! If you don’t have a putter, make one. Use a broom handle, baseball bat or any long cylindrical object and tape it to a block of wood– or even a shoe. You can have the course wind through the rooms of your house and backyard. It’s a great way to get kids to clean up their rooms too! Your family will love creating it even more than finally playing the course. Yes, it’s a team building event too.
