Resources and Takeaways
- This week's episode is short and sweet with a few ways to keep occupied while snowed in.
- This first task is probably the most obvious (and a favorite): Netflix. Some show I recommend include Dexter, Criminal Minds, The 100, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, and How Stuff Works.
- The next task is my personal favorite: Reading! A few books I recommend include The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, The Walking Dead Comics by Robert Kirkman, The Olympians comic series by George O'Connor, and The Sketchnote Handbook by Mike Rohde.
- This next category can bring out your inner kid: Art. Some ideas include painting with coffee or tea and playing the "squiggle game."
- The last category is all fun: Be a kid! Some ideas include building a fort and making a shadow puppet show.
