Connect with Games & Movement

We know it’s difficult to get your brain and body moving in these cooped up times. This section should help alleviate any mental or physical blues!

Winter is here! which makes it a wonderful time to stay home and enjoy a board game with the family. 

Try this list of games for all ages to find one for your family to enjoy. Personally I'd pick Settlers of Catan

Ideas handpicked by staff:

Staff suggested game: 

Pillow-fort Capture the Flag
What You Need: Pillows, Blankets, two "flags" (Bandannas, socks, t-shirts, or anything of the sort will work), open space to play. (added bonus items: any foam-dart guns.)

What You Do:

  1. Divide the players into two equal teams.
  2. Have each team build an awesome Pillow-fort, to hide their flag in, then each team will send players to capture the other team’s flag. Other players should guard your team’s flag.
  3. If members of the other team enter your team’s zone, you can tag them and send them to “jail” (a part of your fort where the jailed player will sit out until freed. Players can be freed from jail when a teammate touches them.
  4. A team wins by capturing the other team’s flag and taking it back to there Pillow-fort.

Stimulate your mind:

Here are a few free resources to help stimulate your mind while at home.  Try out a few of these games and let us know what you think of them.
