Things To Do For Adults

1. Create Some Quarantine Art (or music)

Channeling your productive energy into an instrument, or clay, or paint, or any canvas, can be highly rewarding. Not to mention, you’ll be coming out with a new skill to brag about!

2. Get gardening

Spend some time outdoors by planting flowers in the yard. It’s an excellent way to kill some time, and you’ll get some fresh herbs and veggies if you choose to plant those!

3. Journal

Journaling is a great way to express yourself and relieve tension. We all feel the need to do that right now during these stressful times. It can be surprising how much peace can come from simply writing your thoughts and feelings down.

Things To Do With The Kids

1. Make a cardboard fort

Put those empty Amazon boxes out in the garage to good use! Kids can get lost a good fort for hours or even days, that’s why we’re putting this one up first.

2. Set up a treasure hunt

Treasure hunts are pretty easy, and depending on how many items there are, and it could last a while. Hide anywhere from 10 to 20 things around the house or outside to keep kids occupied for a few hours.

3. Zoom around in cardboard race cars

Let your kids zoom through the living room in their very own race car. Nothing like a good race to get the kids tuckered out! Get the instructions here.

4. Make a bird feeder

What is a better spring craft than making a DIY bird feeder? Or try painting a birdhouse, which you can purchase at your local craft store. However, making it at home is half the fun!

5. Collect and paint rocks

Go to a nearby park and collect rocks, then make a craft day out of it. Paint them with whatever paint you have at home and maybe even turn them into rock magnets for the fridge. It’s a great way to memorialize some family fun!

6. Bake together

Cookies, cakes, brownies. Anything! Baking is an excellent lesson in measuring ingredients, and, of course, making delicious goodies. Just try not to overdo this one for the sake of your waistline!

Be Good To Your Home – Be Good To The Earth

Did you know that installing a single geothermal unit is the environmental equivalent of planting 750 trees? In fact, geothermal systems are recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as the most environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and energy-efficient heating and cooling technology available. These systems also minimize the threats of acid rain, air pollution, the greenhouse effect, and global warming—problems directly linked to the burning of fossil fuels.

We’re here to help you contribute to the environment and save money any time you are ready! Not to mention, you’ll be adding to your home comfort with more even temperature distribution in your home from a superior WaterFurnace geothermal system.
