30 Actions to Look After Ourselves and Each Other as we Face this Global Crisis Together

 

Ways to Keep Connected

Host a movie night and have them all watch together.

Netflix Party lets friends and/or family watch movies together. Anyone with a monthly Netflix subscription can add this free Google Chrome extension. You can synchronize video playback w and add group chat so people can “talk” during the movie.

Grab some snacks, set up a comfy spot on the couch, pop some popcorn, and have a long-distance movie night with a friend or two.

Look for (or create!) neighborhood scavenger hunts.

Lots of communities have come together to find ways for kids to leave little messages for each other, even when they couldn’t meet face-to-face. A group of neighbors in Brooklyn, for example, put rainbows in their windows. When kids and their parents went out for walks, they made a game of finding the windows with rainbows and waved to neighbors and friends who passed from a safe distance. 

Go retro and mail letters.

Helping kids learn to mail letters to friends is another way to keep them connected. .
