It’s hard to keep up with the ever-changing headlines and information surrounding the coronavirus. Headlines in recent days include “Shelter in Place” or “Stay at Home” orders asking citizens to remain at their home unless they need to leave for essential activities and work. And who or what are considered essential?
At the time of this writing, Governor Cooper has not issued a state wide “shelter in place” order but a number of NC Counties including Wake(Raleigh), Mecklenburg(Charlotte) and Guilford(Greensboro) have done so. So if you’re personally impacted by an order or not sure whether your insurance question is “essential”, don’t worry about it.
Either way, we’re here. I hope this gives you peace of mind that I am available today — and will be available tomorrow, to speak with you throughout the duration of this crisis. Our office may temporarily be closed, but I am working remotely to serve you however I can.
What a time for family bonding! 🙂 and as we go into week 2, I thought it’d be helpful to share something more light-hearted than the typical news you’re getting.
I want to pass along along some fun activities to keep the kids busy in case you or someone you know is stuck at home being an employee, teacher, and [grand]parent all at the same time.
- Help them make a daily schedule for activities (breakfast, reading, outdoor time, chores, math, online-learning, screentime, supper, etc)
- Put toys in tupperware, add water, and freeze overnight. The next day, let the kids use salt and warm water to extract their toys!
- Cook with your kids to show them process, practice measurements, and even cut the meal in half to practice fractions!
- Go on a scavenger hunt in the yard! “Look for something: soft, red, fuzzy, round, etc”
- Collect various leaves and rocks from the yard. When you get inside do a bit of online research to identify their names!
- Have them try https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga
- Put “price tags” on various household items. Have your kids take inventory on the items. You can use different colored tags for different children!
- Create a budget with your kids! Give them a weekly/monthly/annual salary. From there, help them think through different types of expenses. Depending on their age, decide if realistic prices or simple prices in 10’s-5’s are more appropriate.
