As we've all been hibernating for a looooong winter, we thought you might be as hungry for ideas of things to do inside your home as Yogi Bear is about finding that "pic-a-nic" basket. Here’s a few suggestions to get you going: 

Show your artistic side by painting or sketching or get out your crayons and start coloring in a coloring book. You can find coloring books for all ages and paint-by-number kits at the Dollar Tree or Michaels in store or online at or use sites like, Art Is Fun: Learn to Draw and Paint.

Perhaps you’d like to learn to knit or crochet? Choose a How To Video on YouTube and follow along. This will help answer the burning question of just how many caps one can knit in a year.

Be a virtual volunteer by supporting a cause from your computer or phone.
