Try to Make a Schedule…so you don’t go stir-crazy!

Parents recommend that during this time – it helps to make a schedule and break down the long day into time slots with activities. You can create this plan together with older children. While there will be times for activities to do together, make sure to schedule in some personal time, where your kids are doing things on their own such as coloring, making things, reading, etc. But, be loose about it, rest and relax.


Make a list of all the things you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time.

Refer to your list throughout this period and see if any are what you feel like doing in this moment.  

Some popular ones: 

  • Sew and repair clothes
  • Make mama’s chicken soup 
  • Cook batches of food and make freeze ahead dinners  
  • Groom the dog 
  • Spring clean 
  • Make a photo book 
  • Order seeds for a spring garden, all things shall pass 
  • Collect loose change-take pictures of your belongings for insurance 
  • Read that book on your shelf 
  • Write letters to your friends, family, servicemen, prisoners or people in need. 
  • Meditate, do yoga, learn something new-think about ways you can help others
