It was 7:30 on Sunday when Mom told me the news. I knew I had plenty to do, but everything seemed to old and boring. Since then, though, I’ve been more creative in a month than in my whole life!
First of all, COVID-19 has taught me to try new things — art, my guitar, new books. ... I’ve also become a lot more independent. I’ve decided to make the most of it and learn from COVID-19 the best that I can.
I’ve been busy with my schoolwork (math, ELA, science, social studies) and also art, piano and guitar. In my free time, I also make time for a workout.
I also love going down to the woods behind my house to explore and take walks. My brother and I also made an awesome fort for reading and “chillin’ out” in. We built it out of bark, sticks, rocks and mud. The floor is made of moss. We made a door and shelves too — all from nature. I love spending time in the dark, cool woods.
I’ve also made my own bow and arrow from strong, stiff limbs. I slowly carved the wood and bark away to make it more flexible ... but not too much. Then, I carved a notch at each end. I measured out a rope and then put a loop each end and put the loops around the notches. I used my pocket knife to make designs and then ... ready to fire!!
I also love spending time biking and reading. I just started a book called “Little House in the Big Woods,” by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I love reading stories about people and history.
This is how I’ve spent my time during the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a rough time for everybody, but make the most of it!
