With Metro Vancouver schools closed indefinitely, Canada SCORES has partnered with The Mindful Project (https://www.mindfulproject.ca) and created at-home activities for children, to keep their minds and bodies active until they can join their friends back at school.

 

SCORES at-home activities are created with SCORES participants in mind, but are appropriate for all ages, so get your family and friends involved! Everyone is welcome to participate!

 

Each activity takes about 20 minutes to complete. Sometimes, we may even offer live video sessions!

Share your SCORES at-home pictures, videos, voice recordings, writings, drawings, etc... with us for a chance to be highlighted on our social media!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for new activities, don't hesitate to contact us at info@canadascores.org

Reminder: Please stay home. The more you stay at home, the safer it will be for everyone in your community. If you must go out into the community (e.g. to buy food or medicine), please practice physical distancing and proper hygiene to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you are self-isolating and need help, please contact us at info@canadascores.org and we will do our best to help you.
