This week, Pirouline founders Peter and Mireille DeBeukelaer made masks by hand for all their employees after they were unable to find enough for everyone. April Prince, the Pirouline HR Manager who passed out these masks to the Pirouline team, said that each employee walked away with a smile on their face knowing they were made with love. This story is a great reminder of the importance of supporting those close to us right now — whether it’s online or within your immediate family.

If you’re looking for some new ideas to keep you connected, here are a few things you can do from home.

Baking a cake is a sure way to get someone to smile, especially when it’s our Chocolate Layer Cake with Buttercream and Piroulines. Our delicious recipe will only take you a few hours from start to finish and leaves plenty of room for some creative decorating. 

Are you tired of playing and replaying all your family board games? Have no fear, just open the kitchen drawer. “It’s always autumn” shares the rules to the classic game of Spoons. It’s super easy to learn, fast-paced, and works for groups of all sizes. Just know that this game will have everyone laughing.

Teaching gratitude is important, especially during times like these. That’s why we love the Gratitude Game from “Teach Beside Me.” Did you ever play the game Pick-Up Sticks as a kid? Well, this is a homemade version with a twist. Each time you pick up a stick, you have to name something you are grateful for. It’s a great way to get the kids thinking.

Miss the clouds outside? Try making some Cloud Dough. It’s inexpensive to make and can be colored any way you want. All you need to create this recipe from “Woo Jr” is conditioner,

Cornstarch, a bowl, food coloring, and a popsicle stick.
