1. Read a Book!
We LOVE to read! Reading a book can transport you to another world. We have shared tons of great titles in our book reviews category and in our post on 20 of the best historical fiction books!
2. Do Some Pinteresting!
If you have parent permission to be on Pinterest, then we would totally recommend checking out our "Our Favorite Crafts" board for some great inspiration! You may find just the ideas you need to start crafting.
3. Take a Walk
Seriously, almost nothing is better for your body and your mind then getting some exercise and spending time outdoors!
4. Play a Board Game
Both of us love to play board games with our family! Some of our favorites are are Monopoly, Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Dominoes (not technically a board game) and Clue.
5. Start an Online Bible Study
Starting a weekly Bible study via Facetime or Skype can be a fun way to connect with girls and God at the same time! We have personallly done Ms. Lisa-Jo Baker's teen study We Saved You a Seat together and really enjoyed the conversations that came from it!
6. Make Bookmarks
Whether for your Bible, school books or fiction books, it seems like there are never enough bookmarks to go around! You can remedy that situation by making one (or all) of these three easy bookmark DIYs!
7. Become a Pen Pal
While it seems like Pen Pals are for younger kids, writing letters and cards is for everyone! Consider writing fun, colorful notes (you can even include one of your DIY bookmarks from #6) and mailing them to your friends, grandparents, pastors, and healthcare workers during this time.
8. Make a Cheery Spring Wreath
Brighten up your house or front porch by making a spring wreath! Bonus points for making two and dropping one off on your neighbor or grandparent's front porch.
9. Solve a Jigsaw Puzzle
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to challenge your mind! Make time (and table space!) to solve a jigsaw puzzle. A cute image on the puzzle is a plus!
10. Color a Picture
Check out these intricate Clockwork Sparrow and Jewelled Moth coloring sheets from Ms. Katherine Woodfine's website (she's the author of the Sinclair's Mysteries series). Go to this link (with parent permission) and scroll until you reach the tab titled "Drawing, Colouring, and Resources" and then click on the page you want to print.
11. Videocall a Friend or Family Member
Take a break from texting to videocall or phone call a relative or friend! It can be refreshing to see their face and have a real conversation.
12. Make a Joy Jar
Make a Joy Jar to write down the things that bring you joy each day. In times like this, it can be very helpful to give thanks back to God and to focus on the positive instead of the negative.
13. Clean/Reorganize Your Bedroom

16. Spend Time With Your Pets
Whether you have a cat, dog, fish, guinea pig, or kangaroo, most pets love to spend time with you! Make extra time to cuddle with your cat or dog, to play with your fish, or to feed them a special treat! Make sure to follow the guidance of your veterinarian or pet store so that you do not accidentally harm your friend.
17. Read Scripture
Learn more about God and be encouraged and refreshed by reading our weekly verse of the week and the accompanying short devotions!
