Home is where the heart is.
No time is this more true. As we go homeward bound and nestle into our homes, it’s time to get creative! If necessity is mother of all invention, there’s no time like the present to stay connected while social distancing, burn off energy, keep our minds active, and draw our families and community closer together. Here’s 6 ways enjoy being homeward bound in Dublin, GA.
1. Baking a Difference
It’s time to celebrate life’s moments with those most dear! SignGypsies Dudley has buddied up with Cookie Crumbles to offer bundles to celebrate birthdays and more! Announce it to the world with a huge yard sign message for 24 hours and one dozen home baked undecorated cookies with all the icing and sprinkles you will need for only $85. To order, call 478-219-3500.
2. Pretty Fancy Stuff
Yes, the uniform of the day for today is PJ’s. But girl! You are going to have to leave the house one day. Be prepared with Dublin’s local boutiques that make shopping an adventure! From Facebook to Instagram, our local lady bosses are making it easy to shop from home. Explore all your online shopping options and #ShopLocal.
3. Homeward Bound: Backyard Camp-Out
Light the fire pit, load up on marshmallows, and pitch a tent in your own backyard. Teach the kiddos the skills needed to light a campfire, locate stars, and cook dinner over open flames. Dexter Meat Company can help with its selection of meats, veggies, and sauces & spices. Call in your order and Matt & Donna will have it waiting curbside. Bonus: A short drive in the country is good for the soul.
4. Take Dinner off your Plate
Homeschooling, work from home, sewing masks, imagining up creative activities to keep them busy, bath time, nap time, dinner time….today’s new normal is packed to the hilt busy. While you moms may be the definition of multitasker, your local eateries can take one thing off your plate. Dinner is done when you use these takeout options from Dublin GA’s local eateries. Yes, McDonald’s COUNTS. They employ locals and add to our sales tax revenue, so relax and take a bite out of that honey do list.
5. Staycation Exploration
Wanderlust got you itching? Hit the open road figuratively while homeward bound with this list of films filmed in Georgia. From films for the littles to date night dramas, these films offer homeschool virtual field trips, and an entertaining chance to experience our beautiful State. Want to make it a real learning experience? Have the kids make a map of all the places they have “traveled.”
6. Bear Hunt
We’re going on a bear hunt in Laurens County! An idea embraced by Downtown Dublin has wrapped this community in bear hugs! From Dexter to Holly Hills, your friends have put teddy bears, sea horses (we see you, Saltwater Fishery!), and cows (you go, Chic-Fil-A!) in their windows for kids of all ages to find. Redefine the Sunday drive, practice social distancing, and take the whole family hunting! Make a map of your finds, snap a pic of a place you want to explore later, or tag a friend in new finds on Facebook!
