Before 2020, most of us probably hadn’t heard of the term social distancing, let alone applied it to our daily lives. However, staying home and limiting your exposure to other people is now the key to helping you and your community stay safe and healthy during COVID-19. It can be tough to spend all your time in the same place and with the same people. Whether it’s just you working from home, sharing an apartment with a significant other, or operating in a house full of kids, you’re probably in need of some entertaining “social distancing” activities that keep you and your loved ones safe in your home but not bored out of your mind.

For fun activities that provide hours of entertainment, cultivate learning, and support mental wellbeing, we’ve got you covered. Check out the activities below for kids and adults, as well as a few downloadable pages to print out, color in or journal on.

Coloring Bird Mandalas – Nothing says relax and keep yourself happily occupied like an adult coloring book. Grab some colored pencils, markers, or gel pens and melt the stress away as you carefully color in every intricate space. If birds aren’t your thing, bring to life some beautiful ocean, dream, or flower designs. And if your social distancing is making you miss your friends, get creative and send them a personal and beautifully colored postcard!
