Goal Setting Vision Board

Take old magazines and newspapers and cut out words and images to create a personal vision board. Spiff up with paints, crayons, glitter, beads, extra fabric, etc. Hang up the boards like artwork in your hallway to make you smile every day!

20 Wacky Questions

Have fun creating a list of 20 wacky questions that everyone in your family answers. Questions like, “What is your favorite memory from elementary school?“ or “What are your three favorite ice cream flavors?” Send to everyone and then compile everyone’s answers. It’s a great way to learn more about your family members, especially cousins and relatives you don’t see regularly. You’ll appreciate having these memories in the future!

Most of all, have fun, be kind to one another, and take this time to connect with the ones you love and cherish! Oh, and don’t forget to wash your hands…20 seconds!
