Activity Ideas When Stuck at Home

All of us at Uplink Studios are also parents and trying to keep ourselves and our children safe.  At the same time, we are trying to find creative things to do to fill the time.  We thought we would share a few things we’ve found and some of the fiun things we are doing with our Uplink players to keep them connected and keep their minds off the COVID-19 news.
