Safe and Sober Family Activities To Do During A Pandemic

Safe and Sober Family Activities To Do During A Pandemic

Exercise, fresh air and fun are essential to coping with stress during this difficult time. Here are some safe and sober activities you can do with your loved ones.

  1. ENJOY NATURE WITH YOUR FAMILY: All guidelines from state and local health officials, such as social distancing (at least 6 feet from others) and practicing good hygiene, should still be followed. Avoid public parks. Acceptable activities include: taking your dog for a walk, go for a jog and take a bike ride.

  2. COMPUTER FUN: Set aside time each day to engage children with free, hands-on learning activities that foster creativity from credible websites. Search YouTube for video tutorials on how to draw, learn a foreign language. Pop some popcorn and cuddle up for a tv show or movie marathon.

  3. VIDEO CHAT WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY: Are your children missing their school friends or other family members? Set up a virtual playdate with their friends or connect with family members living afar via video chat.

  4. GET CREATIVE! PLAY INDOOR GAMES: Play indoor games such as: Simone Says, Duck Duck Goose, or Follow the Leader. Older children can play "I Spy," charades, or indoor bowling or make up new games! Hold a monopoly tournament , chess, bingo or take that puzzle off the shelf.

Always remember, if you need recovery support we are just a phone call or email away!
