Keep Things Fun for Families While Staying Home

For millions of Americans, staying at home all day and keeping a 6-feet-distance from other people, have been the new normal.

As the worst still to come in US coronavirus outbreak, says the reports, the need for social distancing is now even more vital.

If you want to protect yourself, your family and others, staying at home is imperative.

However, being at home almost 24/7, not physically connecting with friends and families, and not being able to go out for entertainment, take a MAJOR adjustment… and sometimes, may require a few purchases.

If you are already struggling on how to keep your family entertained, you may want to look at these Amazon finds (besides movies, of course):


Buying or renting movies from Amazon is a given, but in order to make it a brand new experience, how about watching films and shows from a projector. With this soda can-sized pocket projector, you can take the epic scale of the cinema with you wherever you go (well, anywhere in your home, for now). If you are bored from hosting movie nights (which means every night) from your living room, you can switch things up and set up a backyard movie set up under the stars.
