When you are tired of TV and your eyes are blurry from reading, here are some games and activities you can use to pass the time.
BTW: We are taking special care to wash before packing orders. I’m checking my temperature every morning. If anything changes, I’ll stop sending out orders.
Scrabinoes, our word-matching game that uses Baha’i quotations, can be played by one, two or more people. Play to increase your score, or play to create the tightest grid pattern possible. It will keep your mind active while surrounding you with the uplifting and reassuring message of the Writings.
Coloring is a creative and relaxing way to spend many a pleasant hour. We have coloring books for both adults and kids. Do them alone, or with your family. When you are done, you will have beautiful images to share.
If coloring alone begins to get old, alternate it with challenging and educational activities. In our Animals Building Character Activities and Coloring Book, there are enough activities to keep you and/or your kids busy for weeks.
f you are going to color, you might as well use crayons that help you focus on the good in the world. When the rest of the world goes crazy, our Color with Character Crayons remind us of the value of being playful, creative, honest, mellow, forgiving, grateful and more. Each crayon includes a short definition to meditate on.
This would be a great time to work on memorizing short Baha’i quotations. Our Flash of Inspiration set of 52 cards has a well-loved Baha’i quotation with several words missing on one side, and the same quotation with those words highlighted on the back. It can be used as a group game, but can just as easily be used as a memorization aid for individuals. Play it with your family, or spend a few minutes every day running through the flash cards until you have all of them down pat.
Need a craft project for the whole family? Nothing beats an afternoon of cookie baking and decorating. Our cookie cutters with stamps will make it easy.
They work equally well in play dough, as a template to cut out construction paper stars, or any of a million other craft activities.
