30 Theme Days to Implement at Home During Quarantine
If you are anything like me, you are starting to go a bit crazy during quarantine! Trying to balance homeschool, jobs, emotions, dinner, housework and everything else is a lot! Oh and don’t forget about self-care, right…. Ahhh…
This week I decided we needed to put some fun back into our lives and I came up with 30 theme days to implement at home during quarantine! Most of these should be easy to implement and will bring back something for the family to get excited about each day!
Remember, don’t make this overwhelming for yourself. Let the kiddos run with it and get excited. Try not to put too many rules or expectations around the days. Just make it fun and bring a little bit of excitement to your day!! Post your pictures and comments below!
