Sharing Ideas for Social Distancing

Good afternoon! I hope you are well and finding a way to navigate through our ‘new normal.’ My family and I are starting to get comfortable with the new routine of working from home, homeschooling and keeping each other entertained! With that in mind, I thought I would share some of the ideas we have come up with in the hopes that maybe you take away a few new ideas for yourself, as we are all in this together!

A helpful article from the NY Times has all sorts of good ideas in all of the following areas and they are updating it every week:

TV and Movies | Podcasts | Books | Music | Cooking | Games | Kids

These are some of the items I have on my list…


  • Some Good News (I like starting with this one – great name)
    John Krasinski launched a YouTube series that focuses on feel-good stories and has a comedic flair - check it out!

Family-friendly movies

Movies for us parents



  • Very exciting: Word on the street is that ESPN will be moving up their release of The Last Dance (docuseries of Michael Jordan and the Bulls) to start on April 19

Museum Tours

National Parks

Children’s activities...for kids of all ages :)

  • Scavenger Hunt around the neighborhood: You can get your neighbors/ friends involved. Everyone picks items to find and sends pictures – first to send the pictures wins
  • Writing Letters to grandparents, friends, family who are lonely in quarantine
    Writing Letters to local nursing homes
  • Quirky ideas like making your own shaving cream paper: https://meaningfulmama.com/diy-marbled-paper-shaving-cream.html
  • Cooking – something as easy as sharing with your child different ways to cook an egg can be highly entertaining
  • Go on a picnic

Workout ideas

  • YouTube’s options are endless
  • Many gyms are offering ‘free trials’ for their virtual training – for example, the Peloton app is offering 90-day free subscription
  • OrangeTheory is offering a daily ‘At-Home workout’ on their app

Online stores with sales

Local offerings

Special events

Feel free to share any good ideas with me as well!
Have a healthy and safe weekend,
