Say thank you – Be creative and make a thank
you card for anyone who is on the “front lines” helping keep
everyone safe or supplied. Check Pinterest for card-making
ideas! Remember to
check if the organization will accept the physical copy by mail or
if you should scan/email instead.
loneliness by writing a letter, creating a story, or drawing a

chatting – Check in
with relatives, your troop, friends, etc. Social distancing doesn’t

describes a word (without using the actual word) to the other
person, while they try to draw it based on the description given!

positive affirmations on social media or directly with your family
