We’ve got you covered! Every week, we post FREE activity ideas you can do with your family. They are specially designed to promote being outside, so you can enjoy some family time in your neighbourhood on the weekends in a safe, socially distant way!
Postcard stories are stories or poems that are 100 words or less. They are short and sweet, just like a real postcard.
Normally, you might send a postcard to a friend or a family member when you are travelling, or far from home. But since we aren’t able to travel right now, why not make a postcard from home.
To write a postcard story, think of a memory. It can be whatever you want, maybe it’s from a trip to a special place, or a fun day from this past summer. Write a postcard (a story or poem) about that memory. You can decorate your postcard too!
Take a picture of your postcard and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on our website. We can’t wait to read your stories!
Have you ever looked at big, fluffy clouds on a sunny day? That’s called cloud watching! Sometimes, if you look hard enough, you can see shapes or animals! Let’s do it!
Find a safe spot to lay down where you can see the clouds (this can be in the park or on your balcony). Be sure to do this on a day where there are clouds in the sky! As you’re watching the clouds, use your imagination: what do you see? When you are finished, draw what you saw in the clouds.

An anywhere artist is someone who uses materials from the world around them to create art. For our self-portraits, we are going to be using materials from nature!
Go to a park with your family, and while you’re there, look for materials you can use to make a self-portrait. Maybe you want to use leaves to make your hair, or rocks for your eyes, you can use anything! Just make sure all your materials are safe to pick-up and always wash your hands afterwards!
When you have found all your materials, it’s time to create your self-portrait!
Take a picture of your work and send it to us at email@example.com for a chance to be featured on our website! We can’t wait to see all our Anywhere Artists in action!
