Going Stir Crazy? Here are some ideas!

We have heard from many parents that their family is going stir crazy and they could use some ideas to keep the kids busy. Since next week is vacation week, we have tried to find some ideas and suggestions for fun and easy things you can do to help with those feelings.

In this newsletter, you will find links to DIY games, crafts, recipes, movement activities and much more that we hope you will find useful in the coming weeks. We know how hard it is to be cooped up at home, but just remember that we are being asked to stay home now so that we can be together again soon!

As always, do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do for you.

Roberts Farm Preserve

Looking for a great place to get out and explore nature? Roberts Farm Preserve is a conservation and recreation project of the Western Foothills Land Trust. We welcome you to respectfully explore the 165-acre Preserve using the trails provided. The agricultural history of this land will reveal itself as you skirt the farm pond, passing through remnants of fields and pastures, through numerous stone walls, orchards, and groves.
