Home Activities That Keep Families Busy and Safe!

April 2, 2020

With the spring weather about to be in full bloom, our Department thought it would be beneficial given the current state of affairs to find ways for family members and residents to stay connected while being mindful of current State and Town regulations. The Salem Community Services Department does recognize the many challenges that residents and families are facing during this difficult time, but we also want to find ways for people to be able to connect in a healthy, safe, and fun way!

A list of activities was posted on our website and social media pages several weeks ago with varying indoor and outdoor activities for residents and/or family members to participate in. The list has continued to be updated as we want to keep open the many possibilities for Salem residents to participate in safely at this time.

Some new offerings this month include (LINKS BELOW):

  • Spring/Easter Coloring Contest
  • Indoor & Outdoor Scavenger Hunts
  • Town Wide Egg Hunt (MAP of locations: https://arcg.is/OW1P9)
  • At Home Activities #2!

We encourage residents to please contact our Department or send us a personal email with the activities they have been doing (pictures welcomed!) or sharing additional ideas that they may feel others would benefit from as well. While our office is currently closed, we can still be reached by email (dcole@salemnh.gov) or phone at (603) 890-2003. Please continue to be safe and stay healthy!
