Ideas for children during COVID 19

Similar to at Christmas, where there would be a Christmas themed activity everyday, these are appropriate activities that could be done at home, without a lot of interaction from others. Parents could share these activities and ideas, which would be helpful and create community for others. We could also ask families to look at the ideas, and comment on what some of their favourites ever day are. We would ask when they post to tag the phoenix centre or create a hashtag (like #whatsupinRC or something similar).
