With kids' craft projects, Happy Hour boosts and family game night activities, Baha Mar's online "At Home with Baha Mar" program offers activities that call to mind the offerings available at the resort complex in Nassau.

The digital care package launched the weekend of April 17 and has been shared with past guests and on social media.

A second edition will launch in time for Mother's Day on May 10, according to Karin Salinas, chief marketing officer.

The full kit of fun and games includes five pages of at-home arts and craft ideas for kids. Think of ideas like empty cereal boxes to recreate a mini version of Hometown, USA; leftover egg cartons to build a sailboat or caterpillar; or tins cans transformed into wind chimes.

Parents can chill out by coloring the elaborate designs of Bahamian wildlife and beach scenes in Baha Mar's coloring book for adults.

In late afternoon, print out copies of pages 23 to 26 to fold into thank-you notes for the kids to send to local heroes on the frontlines, neighbors, delivery people and hospital workers or to decorate tree branches in the front yard.

Baha Mar has not overlooked a Baha Boost at cocktail time. For the adults who have made it through another at-home day, page 9 provides a recipe for its coconut-infused Cloud 9 signature cocktail. For something a bit stronger, try the citrusy Vesper.

The evening family game night features a selection of card games on pages 12 to 15, including War, Crazy Eights and Slapjack.

A soundtrack of the sea lapping at Bahamian shores is optional.

"We have received overwhelming feedback from our past guests as well as those who look forward to visiting Baha Mar in the near future," Salinas said.

"Past guests have commented on social media that they love reliving Baha Mar moments at home," she said.

The three-resort complex, Grand Hyatt, SLS and Rosewood, has been closed since March 25. The resort properties are taking reservations from July 1, Salinas said, but the resort is working with local authorities such as the Ministry of Health, to determine the reopening date.
