We know things can get tough being stuck at home. To help, we have complied a list of fun at home activities for all ages!  Share your fun with us by posting pictures of you doing these activities or your vision board on our Facebook page.

play dough

TOTS: No Cook Play-Doh Recipe

We've got a solution for indoor boredom busters! This play-doh is fun to make and will last a whole month if you use the optional cream of tartar to preserve it! 

  1. Mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt, 2 tbsp cream of tartar (natural preservative) in a large bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup hot water, 2 tbsp oil, and a few drops of food coloring. 
  3. Mix & knead and you've got fun!
  4. Store in Tupperware or an airtight plastic bag 

Now make something! How about a sculpture or use a cookie-cutter for a cool design.  You can also press flowers or buttons and more.  

Lazer maze

FAMILIES: Lazer Grid

Use yarn, crepe paper or masking tape to turn any hallway into a crafty and fun challenge for kids of all ages. Tape the yarn on the wall in a zigzag pattern, back and forth, high and low, moving down the hallway. The idea is to create a “maze” that you can work your way through, like the laser mazes you often see on spy movies. Turn on a spy soundtrack in the background or put on a timer for a different experience. Bonus: Can your cat or dog get through?

Kids Slime


FAMILIES: Stay Calm with Sensory Activities

Sensory-stimulating activities can help calm the body and mind as well as aid in self-regulation. Visit our Therapeutic Recreation Facebook page for fun projects daily.

mood board

ADULTS & TEENS: Vision Board

Put all those magazines you have laying around the house to good use by creating a vision or mood board. Cut out things that inspire you and arrange them on poster paper. Once arranged, glue everything together! Place your Vision Board around the house to give you motivation throughout the week. For more details on what to put on your vision board click here.
