Some families still don't feel safe about taking part in activities around strangers. Sometimes it has been hard to find family-friendly events that don't require you to leave your home. Lately, my kids and I have pretty much done every activity you can do at home. You can only take so much of playing the same board games, watching the same movies, and getting wet outside. The most outdoors my kids I get would be walking to the park for exercise and then walk back home. This pandemic has some families worried about participating in activities that require being around others. Luckily, now we can join a new virtual way of doing something fun while in the comfort of our own home. If you've never taken a painting lesson before you can try something new next month. It is fun to step out of your comfort zone and try a new hobby that could probably surprise you in the end.

A couple of years ago I tried a painting session that I really enjoyed doing. Plus, painting a canvas actually is the most relaxing kind of hobby I have ever tried. Well, next month you can experience a Virtual Paint Night. So if you're a fan of The Nightmare Before Christmas then mark your calendars for Thursday, October 8. The free virtual painting session will begin at 6 pm on Mimosas & Masterpieces social media page. So if you've never taken a painting lesson before, you should take advantage of this free online session. This is the perfect activity for the family to enjoy doing in the safest environment, at home.
