Now is the time to get creative and make a collage. Picking one theme in quarantine and basing a collage around that theme will be well-received this month. Possible themes are:
-Self-care. Drawing different ways a person can engage in self-care activities (face masks, meditation, vitamins, yoga) and make a collage out of those drawings.
-Cooking. Creating a collage with images of cooking utensils, and things around the kitchen (cakes, pastries, spoons, knives, kitchen appliances).
-Gardening. Collages of gardening tools and equipment (watering can, flowers, gardening gloves, wheelbarrow).
-Education. Collages of educational tools you are using now (pencils, notebooks, laptops, calculators).
