Encourage virtual playdates.
If you haven't heard about zoom yet, let me introduce you to how most classes are being held these days. This website allows you to video call friends in groups and is totally free and kid friendly. My 9 year old brother has video play dates every night now, where they talk about video games and their toys.
Embrace family time.
Similar to play, make time to do the family activities you normally wouldn't have time for.
1. Start family game nights
2. Have a sibling baking contest
3. Host a movie marathon in a blanket fort
4. Camp out in the back yard for a night
5. Set up a scavenger hunt
