Jenna Dewan on Teaching Daughter Everly to Wash Her Hands: "All Kinds of Creative Things Happen"
While Dewan, Everly, Callum and the star's fiancé Steve Kazee continue to practice social distancing at home together, they are enjoying the family time. But Everly, who turns 7 on Sunday, is getting a little stir-crazy in terms of her own usual social life.
"I feel for her because at this point in the stay-at-home [order], she's starting to really miss her friends," Dewan tells PEOPLE. "As much as she loves me, I think she started to be like, 'Okay, I'd like to venture out of the house and see my friends now.' So it's starting to get a little more difficult."
As a result, the family is "getting a little more creative" with "games we can play at home."
"We did a big thing with creating the longest hopscotch that ever happened," says Dewan, who shares Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum. "It took us an hour outside of our driveway."
Dewan is counting her blessings, though, enjoying the "intense bonding" time of "having no distractions" during the first weeks of life for Callum, whom she shares with Kazee, 44.
"I think that the beauty of it is that it's given us a chance to really get back to what is important and what the necessities are," she says. "You start to realize that a lot of what we deemed important in life, when it comes down to it, is really not important for your day-to-day life."
"What's important is finding time for yourself, finding time for your family, spending time with family, eating nice meals together, communicating with each other, laughing," Dewan adds. "The simple things in life have become really important during this time. So there are a lot of blessings in disguise."
