Writing Challenge// Camp NaNoWriMoย 

Camp NaNoWriMo is a month-long challenge, every April and July, to do something new with your writing. You can set your own writing goal (youโ€™re not locked into 50,000 words like in November NaNo!) and work on ANY writing project.

 

Chalk Your Walk

This is a brilliant movement all about sharing love and encouragement with strangers during this uncertainty! Draw or write messages on your driveway or sidewalk with chalk. Encourage your neighbors to do the same!

 

Live Animal Cams// Sandiego Zoo or the Monterey Bay Aquarium

Some zoos and aquariums are doing live cams on animals! Everything from jellyfish to penguins, these are fascinating to watch! Check the websites for what time the animals are live.

  1. Ohh! I love the Monterey Bay Aquarium; we visited it once, years ago. Thanks so much for putting this fun list together, guys! I’m gonna enjoy looking through everything listed here! (My plans for busting boredom included starting to ‘spring clean’ my room XD But now, I can put it off for a bit longer) Hope you guys stay safe and have a fun week!
