Together at Home: Staying Creative, Having Fun

Together at Home: Staying Creative, Having Fun

Staying creative while landlocked at home is important to maintaining a certain level of happiness, energy and inspiration for both adults and children. In the latest Together at Home installment from SR Homes, the builder shares ways of staying creative.

Kentucky-based art studio MAKE is offering daily art sessions via Facebook Live. Lessons cater around basic items many artists might already have, such as paper, pencils, rulers, heavyweight or watercolor paper, pens, traceable items and homemade clay. Click here to tune in and see the upcoming lesson plan.

The Kennedy Center is also offering a creative outlet option titled Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems. By virtually visiting the artist’s studio, learners can participate with basic supplies, such as paper, pencils, pens or crayons, and explore the ways of writing and making together. New episodes are posted here daily at 1 p.m. and remain online to be streamed afterward. Share the kids’ masterpieces to social media with the hashtag #MoLunchDoodles.

Famous museums from London to Seoul are also offering free virtual tours. Take a break from binge-watching shows and “go to the museum” from the comfort of your couch. Travel + Leisure has compiled a complete list here.

During this time of isolation, many parents find themselves with stir-crazy, bored children. MaryPoppins.com has compiled a list of hands-on activities, crafts and games for kids. While some provide entertainment, others are also educational to provide something to appeal to everyone.

Parents seeking specifically educational activities for kids, will want to check out the list of games, science experiments, lessons, live demonstrations and virtual tours created by LiveScience.com here.
