This weekend may have been a difficult time for you. Stressed. Easily annoyed. Frustrated. Find little things you love to cheer yourself up and put yourself in better spirits. Indulge in something special. Spend quality time with yourself in a room reading, taking a bath, or doing something you love. When you are ready for family again, try these five activities!

135. PLAY THE QUESTION GAME

This one is super easy. There is only one rule. Every sentence you say on your turn has to be a question. First person to not answer a question with a question is the loser. It’s a great game to play with one or multiple people and can easily be played over a video chat!

134. TRY A VARIETY PACK

Enjoy a taste test of your favorite beverages. Buy a can of each of the sodas you like, try a variety of Crystal Light packets. To get some inspiration you can search “variety pack” “drink” on Amazon. Try my favorite tea brand, for example! Create your own version of a ‘wine’ tasting sheet and have the entire family help compare favorites by ranking them and judging them on various qualities like taste, smell, color.

133. ENJOY A UNIQUE COLORING BOOK

A variety of places online are offering free printable coloring books. Check out the Easter coloring book by Britto – one of our favorite artists. The National Archive has printable Lighthouse and, believe it or not, patent coloring books for those who like inventions. Author and Illustrator Elise Gravel has free coloring pages you can print. Not surprisingly, Crayola also has free coloring books on their site.

132. CHECK OUT THE BEAUTIFUL DOGS

A friend just posted on Facebook that he misses seeing dogs. In his honor I am posting this idea of checking out the dogs from the Westminster Kennel Club. Read about the difference in each breed to get an understanding a fascinating view of why breeds have different features. Check out these beautiful well trained and near invaluable dogs!

131. LEARN ABOUT THEATER HISTORY

Today Tix has some great lottery and inexpensive ticket options for you to sign up for once the theaters reopen. In the meantime, to get your theater fix and learn a bit of cultural history, check out this list posted by Today Tix of 32 Theater Documentaries you don’t want to miss.
