How to Pass Time During Quarantine

Social distancing and stay-at-home orders are not easy. We have slowly realized the small things we used to take for granted, things as simple as going to the gym, seeing a movie with friends, or taking your children to the library. Fortunately, businesses have recognized the difficulties associated with these restrictions and have created opportunities to help combat some of the effects of social distancing. 

We have gathered just some of the FREE online classes and activities below:
