Ideas and Things To Do
A place for us to share ideas and things to do whilst we're in isolation.
We've been recording members of the church family reading stories and other readings.
Social distance scavenger hunt for children. Lots are/will be staying home with young kids and taking walks to get fresh air and exercise. Post a piece of coloured paper (maybe cut into a large shape, or face or object on!) in one of your windows for the kids to find while they’re out walking. They can count how many they see and find new ones that pop up every day.It’s simple, its free, it’s fun for the kids, and there’s no direct contact, but it can show the kids that everyone is still connected and cares.
Make a rainbow! And put it in your window as a sign of hope. This is really taking off...
Watch Pete McKee's online cartoon workshops - there is a new one every Wednesday at 12 noon.
Get active! There are so many ways of doing this, even if you can't leave your living room. Here are a few ideas:
*Joe Wicks is leading the nation in P.E. on weekday mornings at 9am. Whether you're 7 or 77, this is lots of fun.
*Our curate's cousin is doing a 7 Minute workout for seniors
*Middlesex County Cricketers have loads of cricket-themed fitness ideas
