Activities at Home

Check out these awesome activities that you and your family can do at home!

Explore with an adult and stay safe. Complete this scavenger hunt by finding the listed items around your neighborhood or yard. Color them in as you find them, collect them if you can (leave animals in their wild homes)!

Scavenger Hunt – Full Version

Scavenger Hunt – Short Version

Complete with adult supervision and stay safe! Sidewalk art is a great way to spread positivity and express your creative side. Write an uplifting message with chalk, create something with sticks, paint on a rock or come up with your own way!



Yoga is great exercise you can do at home! Ask your pets to be your workout partner, too. They might not get all the poses right, but maybe they’ll inspire some new ones! Show us what you’re made of by tagging @hwac.




There’s no place like home! While that’s a sentiment we might not be feeling right now, there are still ways to have fun indoors. One great way is to build a fort with items you have around your house. Show us what you construct by tagging @hwac.
