MAKING THE MOST OF SHELTERING IN
Now more than ever, we hope that your Little Giraffe Blankets, Throws, and Toys give you and your families a feeling of security and comfort as we navigate these unparalleled times.
It’s important to take this moment to appreciate family and the ones you LOVE. Let this be a time to discover ways that help connect, entertain, educate, and bring your family closer together.
As we practice social distancing, here are a few activities that you and your family can enjoy.
Nothing brings families closer together than gathering around the dinner table and enjoying a homemade meal. Now is the perfect opportunity to grab your little ones, learn a new recipe, and prepare a delicious dinner together! Not only can cooking with the family be fun, but therapeutic and entertaining as well. So, grab an extra apron or two, and get cooking!
MEDITATION AND YOGA
Meditation and yoga are not only for the “self”, but the whole family can enjoy the relaxing benefits. A regular practice can bring short-term stress relief as well as improved focus and concentration. Also, it can be done right in the comfort of your own home, providing some much-needed calm, silence, and mindfulness. Lay down a comfy Little Giraffe blanket or Luxe Loft Lamby, breathe in, exhale, and find your center.
VIRTUAL CONCERT AND DANCE PARTY
It’s important to keep our kids, and ourselves, active during this time at home. A great way to get everyone moving is by throwing a dance party. It’s fun, simple, and spontaneous. Start with a family friendly dance playlist on Spotify, hang some lights, find some scarves or ribbons for the kids to wave around, and let loose! Want even more entertainment? Our very special friends at Hullabaloo perform free live streaming concerts on Facebook. See when his next show is here.
NETFLIX AND SNUGGLES
Now that going to the movie theater is not an option, create the movie experience in your home! Pick a movie, grab your favorite treats, make some popcorn, and of course, what better way to cozy up in front of the screen than with your favorite Little Giraffe Throw. Our XL Throws are the perfect size for you and the littles! It’s an easy way to make movie night special.
BRING THE OUTDOORS INSIDE
At zoos and parks across the country, families can check out what's happening via their live feeds. The San Diego Zoo has a website that offers activities, games, and informative videos. Kids can also take a virtual tour at Yellowstone National Park or watch live animal cams at the Monterey Bay Aquarium right at home. Grab your little zookeeper and their favorite playtime pal for a wild virtual ride!
Remember, we’re all in this together, and we will get through this together! We wish you and your family LOVE, health, and safety.
