STAY HOME, HAVE FUN

Finding fun things to do while you’re stuck inside can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re accustom to being on the go and having great places like TCH to have fun and stay engaged.

But, there’s no need to feel overwhelmed or search for ideas when we’ve got a full list of fun things to do right here.

THE COMMUNITY HOUSE QUARANTINE COOKBOOK

How many meals have you cooked while sheltering in place? Do you feel like you’re running out of options? The TCH staff is cooking up a storm in our kitchens and we are sharing our recipes with you in the first volume of our Quarantine Cookbook!

Make something new tonight and share it with us on social media!


KEEP MOVING

Looking for ways to keep moving that won’t break the bank? Here are a few virtual opportunities that will increase your heart rate and your spirit!

 

TAKE THE STAY HOME, HAVE FUN CHALLENGE – RECESS EDITION 

Virtual learning is a wonderful alternative to in-school education, and recess is an important part of school! We challenge you to make recess a priority even at home.

Recess at home is fun too!
