COVID Times: Fun Activities to do with Teens, Tweens, Kids and Family in NJ and Beyond

It's time for some FUN! This has been a REALLY long year so far for all of us and you are thinking about what you can do to stay active, engaged and safe with your family. I'm based here in New Jersey but alot of these ideas you can put into play anywhere. Get out or just get moving in the house and have some fun!

1.  Did you know you can create your own themed puzzles, crosswords, word searches and even mazes? There are tons of programs online that can help you do this in a snap and its a lot of fun. You can even make one to share with a group on Zoom, HouseParty or Microsoft Teams. Choose any theme from cooking to COVID_19 to the season and have everyone participate to come up with related words and use them in the puzzle. 

2.  Remotely visit a museum that you always wanted to visit! 

3.  Visit a wolf preserve and interact with wolves in real life. 

4. Set up a home gym and work out together! You don't need much to get started you can use a towel or a mat if you have them and use water bottles or soup cans for weights. If you want something heavier fill a laundry container with sand and you have a kettlebell. Check out tons of  free online videos on Pop Sugar or Fitness Blender

Be ready for the holidays with Smile Brilliant cariPRO™ Ultrasonic toothbrush #sponsored @smilebrilliant #smilefearlessly

I bet you have seen those ultrasonic toothbrushes in the stores or clicked and looked when you were shopping online but just never made the decision to buy one yet. Some of the big brands are pretty pricey. Smile Brilliant cariPRO has recently made it a lot more affordable for anyone to up their dental game and get the latest technology. It definitely makes a difference for clean teeth and healthy gums in my personal experience over the last week or so. Who doesn't want to have a beautiful celebrity smile? Smile Brilliant gifted me with a cariPRO Ultrasonic toothbrush recently so I could see for myself how effective their newest technology really is. 

I have been using a big name ultrasonic toothbrush for years because my dentist actually recommended me to do it. He said ultrasonic toothbrushes really do a better job cleaning your teeth thoroughly. I need to have a bright, white smile every single day so I budgeted for it since their really weren't other options. After recently trying the Smile Brilliant cariPRO, I wish that it was available back then. The Smile Brilliant cariPRO does just as good of a job cleaning as my fancy pants big brand ultrasonic toothbrush! It is full of features that my big name toothbrush has too.  

I spend my days visiting important clients and a fresh, white smile is important. I want people to focus on my words, so I want to make sure my teeth are clean, white and healthy.  I am careful about caring for my teeth and gums so I brush with a gentle whitening toothpaste and floss daily. I started using my Smile Brilliant cariPRO about a week ago and it works every bit as effectively to clean my teeth comfortably and thoroughly. I like that the cariPRO has a sleek, modern design that is easy to hold. It charges quickly and takes up minimal counter space.  I like using my cariPRO at night because I can take my time and floss my teeth first and then thoroughly clean my teeth before bed. It is interesting that if I feel my teeth after brushing with the cariPRO I can feel the difference versus when I use a manual toothbrush on those super rushed mornings. When I have the time I try to exclusively use my electric toothbrush in the am too.  My teeth feel so much cleaner and smoother when I use the cariPRO because it is so much more effective at removing plaque.  You need to see for yourself. 

Smile Brilliant cariPROUltrasonic toothbrush has 5 different brush modes too. I had to pay a lot more for this feature back when I bought my big name brand years ago. My dentist recommends the sensitive mode for everyday since it is the most gentle mode. Sometimes I need a more deep cleaning and it is a cinch to switch and try the Clean, White, Massage or Gum Care modes. The White is great if you enjoy red wine or colas since it really does a deeper cleaning of the tooth surfaces. The Smile Brilliant CariPRO comes neatly boxed and includes everything you need to get started with cleaner, healthier and whiter teeth.  Your charging base is included as well as two brush heads.  It takes about two minutes to brush properly with the cariPRO and see the best results. 

I find that when I use an ultrasonic toothbrush like this cariPRO, it keeps my teeth cleaner and I can get in and out of my twice a year dentist visits much faster with fewer issues. My teeth are cleaner and it seems to leave less chance for cavities to form since all surfaces of the teeth are super cleaned. Smile Brilliant provides a 2-year warranty on their products too and they really want complete satisfaction so if you don't love it like I do, they will take it back. Trust me, you will want to keep it.
This Smile Brilliant cariPRO™ Ultrasonic toothbrush effectively cleans teeth quickly. Once your cariPRO is charged up it stays charged for several days too. I will be taking it with me on vacation this fall and winter and it is definitely coming on my upcoming business trip. I already marked in my calender when I started using it since I try to change the electric toothbrush heads about every three months.  

Smile Brilliant cariPRO™ Ultrasonic toothbrush is so easy to use, anyone from teens to adults can use it too. This would be a great gift to give with the holidays coming. If you have a friend or a family member (my oldest sister!) who is still using a manual toothbrush this would totally be a welcome and useful gift.
