There are lots of activities we an still do Social distancing saves liveswith our family during this time.

Staying Connected

To help them stay connected, you might set up FaceTime or Skype visits with them. You also can plan family activities. Taking a walk or a hike or riding bikes are great ways to get out and get active without having physical contact. If you go to parks, keep kids off of communal equipment (stuff that lots of kids use, like jungle gyms) and take your own equipment (balls, jump ropes, etc) for your children to use or just walk around and explore.

Other activities include:

  • Cooking and baking togethercharacters spread out, practicing social distancing
  • Play an online game with friends
  • Write a letter to a family member or friend

That is crazy that a collision with some form of wildlife happens almost every 39 minutes. I didn't know that you had to report the accident to the police if you did hit an animal. I will have to make sure I call the police and report it if I ever hit an animal. Thank you for the information!
