Uplift at Home

Some of our friends and family members may be scared during this time, so it’s important that they know we’re there for them. A wonderful way of reassuring our friends and family of our presence is by reading to them, and helping them understand that it’s okay to feel scared or anxious.

The comfort activities

These are some activities for you to do from the comfort of your own home with your family members or friends!

You Can Listen to FREE books!

Audible has released some wonderful stories that you can listen to straight from your home. All you have to do is download and listen! This is a wonderful activity to do by yourself, or with a family member or friend (and you don’t even need to be near each other!)

Harry Potter at Home!

Join all of your favorite characters from the safety of your own home. Author J.K. Rowling released this website because she knew that families everywhere are at home. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t explore Hogwarts!
