Today’s challenge is to write a letter to someone special. This could perhaps be a friend or a family member outside of your household. Tell them what you have been doing and what you would like to do with them when things get back to normal. You could also draw them a picture.

Daily Challenge - Week 8 Day 1
Den building!
Today we challenge you to build a den! There are lots of different ways to build a den at home (inside or out!)

Remember to ask a grown up for permission (and some help) first!
