Hearing about so many great ways that people are getting creative while under the shelter order. Getting the kids outside for art, while still keeping good social distance, coming up with 'Movie Night' invitations, etc. With so much stress as we work our way through these scary times, it's great to see fun and positivity too. Keep it up. Feel free to attach a photo of how you and yours are finding the fun.

Lots of chalk art on the sidewalks in my neighborhood.
