Thank you notes
Write thank you notes to the people who are still working at this time to make sure our lives keep going. Some people you may want to write to are mail people, trash workers, grocery workers, as well as people who work in hospitals, like doctors, nurses, and custodians.
Letters of joy
People in nursing homes cannot have visitors, so cheer up their day with a note. You can draw a picture and a little note or you can tell them a little about yourself.
Chalk Inspiration notes
Write happy notes on the sidewalk so when people are getting out and about for that short amount of time they have something that makes them smile.
Notes in windows
You can also put notes or happy drawings in windows so they cheer people up when they drive by. You can also use the notes to express support for essential workers or to thank people who deliver food or packages.
Help out family
A simple act of helping out around the house without being asked or complaining can be a big help. The more that you help, the more your parents will be able to play and do things you want to do.
Delivering a treat will bring anyone who is having a bad day a smile, and you may even be able to see a friend from a safe distance.
