Are your days blurring into your weekends? Feeling a little low about having to #stayhome?  Treat your QuaranTEAM to a special weekend away from the routine with these tips for Staycation activities we compiled:

  1. Take a Trip to a Hotel (at home):  For the real hotel experience put on your best sheets, fluff the pillows, add some flowers and offer turn down service with a warm cookie before bed. If you are feeling adventurous, try making a resort-style towel animal! https://kickback.com.au/blog/towel-animals/

  3. Take at Trip to Puerta Backyarda:  Sun yourself in the backyard with a beach towel and a cold drink.
