Another week, another batch of socially-distanced ideas.
Our social feeds have been flooded with videos and photos of both loved ones and strangers around the world dealing with self-isolation. There have been plenty of lols in between all the heart-melting moments, are we right?! If you’re busy working from home with kids around, we feel you. Many of us have been homeschooling during the week and social distancing at the weekend – it’s tough, but we’re also relishing the positive moments during these Covid-19 times. If you’re looking for things to do this week, we have some ideas for (responsible) things to do with the kids. Don’t forget to subscribe to our newsletter for all the latest news and happenings, plus over on our Instagram we’re posting happy news stories every day to put a much-needed smile on your dial. Love and hope, guys… just add soap!

2. Get the kids watching some educational YouTube channels

3. Take in the Southern Ridges
In these strange times, it’s still vital to get some exercise in. So to keep you sane, why not go for a walk (just please be responsible and only go with members of your household… and keep distance between you!). One of our fave walks in Singapore? The Southern Ridges. As well as being beautiful, it’s also pram-friendly in parts. We walked the entire 10km to bring you our tried-and-tested tips.
4. Learn how to store your fruit and veggies
This one’s especially useful – not just for these Covid-19 times, but forever onwards! We share the best tips for how to keep your fruit and vegetables lasting longer. Yep, these storage hacks for your groceries can extend shelf life considerably. Our faves? Popping asparagus in a little water to keep it nice and firm. Because no-one likes floppy spears.
5. Sweat it out… at home
Everything’s moving to inside our homes right now, including our exercise routines. If you’re looking for things o do with the kids this week, get the family movin’ and groovin’ thanks to some rather handy online workouts. Take your pick, grab a towel and move those feet!
