10 Fun Activities to Do in Your Home This Weekend
With the nation working together to slow the spread of COVID-19 by spending time apart, many people are finding themselves with little to do. Staying at home for an extended period of time can get old, and you may feel like you’re out of things to keep you occupied. We’re here to help – we’ve compiled a list of 10 activities you can do this weekend that will be sure to keep you busy and entertained.
10 Fun Things to Do If You’re Bored at Home
Work on a puzzle
Puzzles are not only an excellent way to pass time, they’re also a great brain exercise – and they come in many different forms. While jigsaw puzzles are the most classic, there are also some brain teasing puzzles available on Amazon that are sure to keep you busy. Better yet, support local business by seeing if your favorite shop has any puzzles or games available online.
Finally make that recipe you’ve been eyeing
We all have one or two recipes that we’ve been thinking about making but have never made the time to put spatula to pan and actually do it. Now’s the time to blow the dust off that recipe and get cooking. You may surprise yourself with your skills in the kitchen!
Get on TikTok
TikTok is all the rage right now – get on the app and teach yourself a TikTok dance like this one. Maybe even try recording a dance of your own. Who knows, you might even go viral!
Plan a movie night
Pick a movie you’ve been wanting to see and rent it for the night! Make some popcorn and a mug of hot cocoa while you cozy up with your favorite blanket and enjoy.
Play virtual games
If you don’t have people around you to play cards with, then start a video call with your friends and play your favorite game virtually! Here’s some inspiration for games you can play over the phone with one or multiple friends.
Follow a virtual workout class
Although most gyms and workout facilities are closed, you can still find workout classes online. Places such as CorePower Yoga and Orange Theory Fitness are even offering free classes online – so go on and get moving!
Read a good book
You know that book you’ve been meaning to finish for a while now and just haven’t had a chance to get to? Well, here’s your chance. If you’re in the market for a new book, here’s a good place to start.
Take a walk around the neighborhood
Nothing like exploring the great outdoors – even if it is just your neighborhood! Listen to some music or a podcast while you walk through your neighborhood and soak up some sun, and maybe even say hello to your neighbors.
Have a spa day
You may not be able to go to the spa, but you can bring the spa to you! Buy some face masks from your local pharmacy, or even make your own face masks, and relax on your couch while you let the face mask work its magic – you could even purchase a neck massager on Amazon to turn it up a notch.
Go on a picnic in the backyard
For one of your meals, enjoy a change of scenery from your dining table and get some fresh air by packing up some food and a blanket and having yourself a picnic outside. You could even pack a baguette, cheese and a bottle of wine and imagine you’re under the Eiffel Tower. Bon appetit!
