Have fun at home while practicing #SocialDistancing

Right now is a crazy time for pretty much all of us. Some of us are learning how to "homeschool" our school age kiddos, some are learning how to "co-exist" at home with their spouses full time, and some are just trying to deal with all of the new uncharted territory all around us in general. No matter how you look at it time right now can be pretty stressful if you don't take some time out of your day to just enjoy life. That's the one thing I've learned in the last several weeks, we have to stop and enjoy the time we do have all together at home. Below you'll find some ways to do that thanks to the good folks over at Tastykake, Pilot Pen, Domino and Party City.

Snacking Done Right 
Individually wrapped with a stable shelf life, Tastykake’s classic lineup of Krimpets, Kandy Kakes and Powdered Sugar Mini Donuts are a must for at-home snacking solutions. Looking for more than just a sweet treat to pass the time? Tastykake also provides DIY recipes available online at the Tastykake Kitchen, with all your favorite treats turned into easy family activities. 

Get the Creative Juices Flowing
Cabin fever already getting the best of you? The solution is to step away from the screen and get those creative juices flowing. Below are three activities from Pilot Pen you can do while quarantined to help you from going stir crazy!

• Color - Relax with a coloring book!
Grab a set of FriXion Colors Marker Pens and ease into social distancing colorfully. With the unique thermo-sensitive ink, you don’t have to worry about coloring outside the lines, just erase and get back creating. Purchase at Target.

• Journal - Transform the little extra time on your hands into a grateful moments. 
Gratitude journaling will allow you to see the good in your current quarantined state and remain positive while you may be feeling uncertain of what the future holds. Having Pilot Pen’s #1 selling gel-ink pen in America be your tool for gratitude, the G2 will help you write smoother, longer and have a beautiful memento to reflect on from this time in your life. Purchase at Target.

• Create - Take time to create for others.
While we are all in our respective houses, now is the perfect time to be creative and help make someone’s day a little more colorful. Draw, design, color and captivate with new made-to-create Juice Paint Markers from Pilot. The deeply saturated water-based colors are perfect for personalizing almost anything. Juice Paint is permanent on porous surfaces, from paper to fabric and wood. On non-porous surfaces like plastic, glass, chalkboards and metal, Juice Paint can easily be made permanent or be removed with soap and a damp cloth. Write a card, customize a flower-filled vase, take snacks in a brightly decorated container; whatever the activity Juice Paint markers can be the catalyst to brightening someone’s day! Purchase on Amazon.

Sweeten Things Up
Domino Golden Sugar, the less-processed sugar you can use more freely in all your favorite foods, works cup-for-cup just like white sugar, but has a beautiful golden color and a distinct hint of molasses flavor you’re sure to love. With the help of delicious sweet recipes, tiny hands and minds will be kept busy with mixing, cookie cutting and "sneaking a taste" while under house lockdown. Parents— you can even use baking to tie in a lesson to learn about measuring, math and the science to make it educational while school is out! Although you can use Golden Sugar in any recipe that calls for white, click HERE for a few of our favorites, specifically made with Golden.
