Afternoon Break Activities

(These are recurring events until the last week of April.)

Pet Party!

If nothing else, this pandemic has brought us closer to our pets, and we are lucky to not have to keep social distance from them. Many among us are pet people, so let’s connect with our pets, with other pet lovers and pet parents. You may also show us a pet trick!

Please join our Pet Party on Mondays until the last week of April from 3:00 – 3:30 pm via Zoom.  Password: PetParty

Tuesday Brain Teaser

We all need a mid-afternoon break from conventional tasks and thinking. Join our Tuesday with your favorite Brain Teaser or to help solve one. Your kids, spouses, quarantine partners are welcome to help solve puzzles and riddles with you. 

Please join us on Tuesdays until the last week of April from 3:00 – 3:15 pm for our Tuesday Brain Teaser via Zoom:

Chair & Desk Yoga

Let’s take a break! - Before we all take on the shape of our chairs because many of us are confined to our home office, and our desks for hours not having to walk to buildings and classrooms on campus, let’s do some simple yoga exercises and take a few breaths.

No previous experience is necessary, and anyone including your children, pets, siblings, spouses are welcome to join this 10 – 15 minute session on Wednesdays until the end of April from 3:003:15 pm via New Zoom Link:

Brain Reboot with Origami

Because our brains have been working overtime and our fingers have been glued to our keyboards many of us can use a brain reboot and put their fingers to different use with Origami.

All you need is a square piece of paper (at least 5x5, but larger is easier) of any color. Join us on Thursdays until the last week of April from 3:00 – 3:30 pm for an Origami Session with Carly Hendershot and others. Invite your friends, children, and kids to join via Zoom:
