COVID Safe Activities: Week 3

We’ve moved into November, and it’s getting chilly!

As we stay indoors more with this colder weather it is more challenging to stay busy and happy while also staying safe.

One of Nick’s favorite things to do when it gets colder is to grab a warm blanket and a cozy pillow and watch some of his favorite movies. Movie nights are a great way to relax, and you can also invite vaccinated friends over to watch with you!

With the holidays coming up, now is a great time to stay indoors and practice your baking! Not only will the oven help keep the house warm, but you’ll have a tasty treat to share with friends or to eat during your movie night.

Nick’s favorite thing to make is cheesecake! He loves making cheesecake for his family and friends for special occasions or just because. You can adapt recipes to fit so many different dietary restrictions too.

Nick made a dairy free, gluten free cheesecake this time!

Cooking and baking is a great way to get some sensory stimulation!

Baking is so fun, even if you need a little help mixing!

Winter will be here soon, and Nick is looking forward to more movie nights and baking more tasty treats. Nick says his favorite part of the holidays is how much good food people get to eat. He can’t wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

What will you do this season to stay happy and healthy?

COVID Safe Activities Week One

Unfortunately, it looks like COVID-19 cases are ramping up this fall, and we can expect to be extra cautious again this year to protect ourselves and our families and friends. Nick wants to publish some ideas each week for fun, COVID safe activities. Staying busy while staying safe can be fun!

Nick loves being able to have some guy time, and with football finally back this year, what better excuse is there? Having a couple of vaccinated friends come over to cheer on your favorite team and eat some tasty food is a wonderful way to have some safe fun.

Nick’s favorite team is the Denver Broncos, but he enjoys the quality time spent with friends even more than the game. Recently Nick invited his friends Alex and Jonas over to have a game day BBQ. Everyone had so much fun and Nick was very happy to be able to spend the weekend with friends and catch up. Go Broncos!

Another good idea for some COVID safe fun is to get outside while the weather is still nice! Nick enjoys going to the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland to look at the sculptures. The park is beautiful, and Nick especially loves all the animal sculptures. Walking outside is a great way to keep your distance from others while still enjoying some fresh air.

Nick loves going bird watching with his job coach Audrey and her family. Bird watching with Audrey is a tradition Nick has enjoyed for years. Nick’s favorite part about bird watching is when furry friends come along for the fun, even if it gets a little crazy! Walking your dogs with family or friends is a great way to get some exercise and stay safe.
