Watch: Family finds unique way to have fun at home during coronavirus outbreak

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine praised statehouse reporter Andy Chow for keeping his children entertained in a safe environment.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Near the end of a press conference in which he called upon all Ohio residents to stay at home, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine shared a much-needed laugh with a statehouse reporter over a funny video.

Statehouse News Bureau reporter Andy Chow posted a video to his Twitter account on Saturday of him finding a unique way to keep his kids entertained. The secret? A hairdryer and tissue paper.

Gov. DeWine and his wife, Fran, couldn't get enough of it.

"It made our evening," Gov. DeWine said to Chow in a light-hearted exchange. "We enjoyed it very much. We laughed at it a few times."

Although the video is only 31 seconds long, Chow said the fun lasted for an hour.
