Get Filming! 

Get your kids in on the fun by asking them to help you create your own TikTok dance! Youtube the dances and master your moves- you can post your fun family videos on Youtube, TikTok, Dubsmash, and more. You don’t even have to film it, just get moving and learn some new moves!

Memorize the Flu

Not to be panicky, but wouldn’t it be great if your kids took their health seriously? Learn all about the great Flu Epidemic of 1918 with the Dallas Heritage Village. They have articles, historical facts, memes, and more about the flu pandemic on their Facebook page.

Go to Disney World
