We’ve been stuck at home for several weeks now. We’re running out of things to do and routines get old. We brainstormed a list of fun things to do! Hopefully there are a couple of new activities that catch your interest.

Good ‘ole Spring (Summer) Cleaning

Time to reorganize the closets, make the kitchen sparkle, and get rid of all the dust, nonessential items, and negativity in the house.


Indoor Picnic and New Recipes

Do you find yourself cooking and experimenting more? Time to make use of those new chef skills! Create a fun picnic inside with your family or roommates.


Card/Board games

Everyone probably has already tried to alleviate some boredom with cards or board games. Hopefully here are some you haven’t tried yet. Phase 10, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Pandemic Series, Exploding Kittens, Munchkin (comes in many themes), Mysterium, Gloomhaven, Unstable Unicorns, Magic the Gathering or any other trading card game!


Video Games

Play Video Games

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become a very popular past time. People are able to take control of their own island and have a creative outlet. There is also Outer Wilds, Nier: Automata, Deltarune (One Free Chapter Sequel to Undertale), Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, Final Fantasy XIV, and Ring Fit Adventure. On Steam, there is also Tabletop Simulator to help play classic card and board games online while practicing social distancing with friends.


Spa Night

If you are like me, since I don’t have anywhere to go, I have not been taking care of myself as well as I usually do. A spa night is a great way to not only pamper yourself, but to relieve stress. Plus it is fun to do with the family, roommates, or through video chat with friends!


Take Online Classes

Have a Fashion or Art Show

Let out your creativity through fashion and create some of your best outfits and have a fashion show. You can even recreate the works of the masters with #betweenartandquarantine or #tussenkunstenquarantaine.


Create your own Products

Learn how to make soap, candles, or perfume. It’s fun and smells great! Plus you can save a buck making your own.


Karaoke

Karaoke at Home

Have a fun karaoke night and sing all your favorite songs with everyone at home or through video chat!
