Stay at Home Activities
The Leader Dog team expected to host our inaugural Bring Your Child to Work Day this year, but due to the spread of COVID-19, it was canceled. Instead, we celebrated the whole week with a variety of creative activities you can do at home! We are sharing these activities for anyone else who may be looking to do something fun while staying home. Many of these projects are perfect for family members of all ages.
