As the world seems to be coming to a standstill, it can feel overwhelming to have kiddos at home during this time. My children are too young to understand what’s going on, thankfully. But I know that’s not the case for so many families!
Between the uncertainty, self-isolation, and stress about factors like job security and getting sick, I think it’s safe to say many of us are looking for some relief! My stress relief usually comes in the form of some creative outlet. So I wanted to find a simple way to extend that to others.
Many are being told to stay home for 14 days, so I created a challenge for those 14 days! Granted, the amount of time jobs and schools will be closed is likely going to be longer. But this can be a fun way to break up the days ahead!
The challenge I created is simply called the 14 Day Creativity Challenge. I’ve listed 14 different tasks that will require a bit of creativity to complete. It’s going to be such a fun activity for you and your family to do each day!
With the tasks listed, you can choose to do them one of two ways. One way is to complete them together as a family project. In which case I fully expect bigger and more involved end results! Haha.
The other option is to challenge *each other*! Each participant does their own daily task, or you can pair up for larger families. You can have one family member judge the rest, have a timer to see who finishes first, or just simply enjoy the different interpretations and ideas that can come from one household!
I think it’d be really great to share our completed tasks on social media! Many people are quite lonely these days. So hopefully this can help some feel connected and like we’re working towards something together. I will be sharing my family’s projects with the hashtags #14daycreativitychallenge, and hope you will do the same!
I know this has been a scary time for everyone. And it’s a lot more complicated than to just “enjoy your time off with family”. But this is where we’re at right now! So I hope this can add one small part to your day where you just do something fun and creative, and maybe even reduce stress for a short while.

I encourage you to download the 14 Day Creativity Challenge below! Maybe put it on your fridge for a daily reminder. This is meant to be a fun and light-hearted activity to do with your kids, so change it up however you want! Do them out-of-order (we probably will be), take creative liberties, make it your own!
Let’s all keep the creativity flowing and our sense of community intact as we get through this as a family, country, and world. 💗
