So, you are home with the kids… Whether it is social distancing, self-isolation, or quarantine, the kids are still active! We have put together a list of things to do with your kids over the coming weeks (months?) while the COVID 19 Pandemic plays out.
The big thing, keep active at home, in the yard, but away from public areas and groups of people!
More information will be added as we find it. If you have something we can add to the list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
