Never in my lifetime have I seen such a crazy time like right now. What I have seen is that with people not being so busy all the time has really ramped up their creativity! It’s like my generation are all kids again and bringing out the classic games and activities.

While my Facebook feed has its fair share of news stories and reports, but I’m also seeing families bonding like never before because they have been forced to slow down. Creativity in adults and kids is booming and I am honestly loving the ideas I see every day.

Recently many of my friends have stated it’s just nice to “see” people, even if you have to stay away and can’t give hugs. Many of them have started doing activities in their own driveway to stay connected with those around them. So I thought it would be fun to gather them all in one place to give everyone some fresh ideas or get those creative juices flowing for new ones!

And while many people are still practicing safe distances, there is a lot you can do right at home. Getting outside doesn’t mean you have to take a trip somewhere or drive a long distance. You can do so much right in your own home, backyard or in the driveway!

Having fun while staying apart is easy! Grab your lawn chair, a few household supplies and check out these fun things to do in your driveway!
