You can engage in activities like tracing your ancestry, join virtual tours of world museums, or simply catch up on a TV show or movie. The digital universe is awaiting exploration!
Channel your inner Picasso! Another fun indoor activity is art. Whether you’re doing a watercolor painting or a DIY craft, your options are endless. You can also use art as a social activity. Getting together with your neighbors and friends to work on an art project is another way to spend time with fellow residents.
