Thinking outside the box

As the novelty of being home with some time on your hands starts to fade … what else could you be tackling?

  • Are you planning to take your driver’s licence test this year? Why not use the time to get your road code study underway. Check out the AA website for their practice quiz.

  • Visit an art gallery/museum/zoo - virtually of course! This is a unique time where you can get a free chance to look at art on the other side of the world for free and with no queuing! Also zoos are recording the extra freedom many of the residents have while people aren’t visiting.
    Find virtual tours from around the world
  • Get in touch with friends or family who don’t live in your area. Now is a great time to send a message to an old school friend who left the area or get to know those distant rellies!
  • Let’s Chalk About - create positive messages and images on your local footpath.

Remember online safety at this time - check security settings for sharing spaces, and proceed with the same usual caution you would regarding people you don't know.
