Strategy of the Month
- Hula Hoop (I'm not the best at it but it is still fun to try. They have some at the Dollar Store)
- Wash the car (fun and functional)
- Plant some plants in a pot and check in on them regularly. Don't forget to water them!
- Sit outside and observe nature, observe shapes in the clouds or read a book
- Draw some of the things that you see outside. Maybe even with sidewalk chalk
