They provide free printable notes that the children can use to write a letter to a neighbour, friend, relative or perhaps a senior in a local residence!   https://blog.dixie-design.com/2020/03/17/activity-printable-day-1-notes-to-neighbors/ BOKS is a website that streams kids exercise programs and has other resources for kids. I have only previewed an exercise class but the rest of the site might be worth a closer look. https://www.bokskids.ca/boks-at-home/  Painting rocks and hiding in plain sight has become a popular activity around the world. Essentially you paint a rock with pretty colours or motivational phrases and you leave them places where people will find them. Might be a great activity on this rainy day. https://www.prudentpennypincher.com/100-best-painted-rocks/ Finger Weaving https://www.undercoverclassroom.com/finger-weaving/
