Coronavirus – Things You Can Do To Keep Busy

March 31, 2020

These are weird times. Something we have never faced before and it can be stressful and scary. It can also be boring if you are a go-go type.  Believe me, I am hardly ever at home for most of the year so this is new for me as well.  I put together some ideas of things you can do at home to keep your mind and hands busy. In this list you will find something for the adults and something for the kids, something for singles and something for families.  I hope you get some new ideas!!
