5. Learn about one of the missionaries that your church supports. Study the country in which they live and its people. Cook a traditional meal from that area in the world. Pray for the missionary and the people they serve. Write a letter to them and send it! 

6. Organize a virtual game night with another family! Perhaps a game of charades, trivia or pictionary. 

7. Video competitions with a few other families. Each family puts together a music video or lip sync video. Share your creation and get together over GoogleHangouts or Skype to vote on the best one! 

8. Guess that ice-cream flavor! Pick up some unique flavors of ice-cream. Have the kids sample each option and guess the flavor. 

9. Virtual Book Club: Read or listen to a book together as a family. Get a few other families to do the same and meet virtually to discuss the book. 

10. Have a talent show. Record it and share with your family and friends to brighten their day!
