Siblings hand out activity bags during school closures

BRIDGEVILLE, Del –In Bridgeville, three siblings are working to make it easier for parents to keep their kids entertained.

The siblings teamed up to make bags filled with things like activity books, reading books, crayons, and drawing paper.

The siblings also added an activity challenge in each bag to see how long kids can ride bikes, which they hope will encourage them to get outdoors.

We’re told this is all an effort to keep kids engaged while they’re stuck at home.

“It makes me feel really good because it let’s me know that I’m helping people and the community at the same time,” Lilyan Farris, Phillis Wheatley Elementary School student, said.

“It’s really important to get kids out there and active during this time so that they are still a part of their community and are still being social,” Shelby Farris, Woodbridge High School student, said.

“This is a good time to do a quarantine bike challenge, which is the same thing, but it is a way to get kids outside and stay active during this time,” Harrsion Barnes, a college student, said.

Friday was the first day the siblings distributed these bags , they were given out at Phillis Wheatley Elementary School.

The siblings plan to hand out the activity bags to students at various other school district lunch pickups in the future.
