Just because you're at home doesn't mean you can't be having fun. We've put together a list of 8 activities to help keep you busy when you're stuck inside, and possibly help to ramp up the fun for the whole family.
1. Catch up on movies you missed
What's better than a weekend at home on the couch? Staying in would also mean having a lot more time on hand, this is the time to catch up on all the past movies that you missed. Be sure to get ready your bowl of popcorn on drinks to enhance the home-theatre experience.
2. Art Jam with the family
You don’t need to head to a studio to art jam, you can bring art jamming home too. All you need are the right materials and gathering your whole family after. It is a fun activity for a bonding session that will bring out the artist in everyone!
3. Play some retro game
This will bring back fond memories of your favorite games from the 90's Nintendo-gaming days. This console comes built-in with 500 classic games that will keep your time fully occupied without feeling bored. For an arcade experience, you can also connect it to your TV output to experience the full game on a big screen.
4. Cook or bake with your family
There is nothing like preparing your family's favourite meals together. Stay home and cook or bake with your family. This is a great time to bring out the inner Masterchef in you and you get to share the culinary experience together.
5. Create your own restaurant ambience with Jazz Music
After you are done cooking, set the table, and create a restaurant ambience by playing some jazz music. For best results, play the YouTube link below on your TV screen, pour yourself a glass of wine, and tuck in.
6. Try a virtual escape room
What better way to spend a day inside, than inside another place virtually? Experience the thrill of an escape room without leaving your home with this virtual Escape Room we chanced upon – Enchambered. Get another player onboard, and test your wits and solve puzzles together. You'll be surprised how much of an adventure this can be.
7. Hop on a virtual drive in cities
Miss travelling? We totally understand that feeling. Every time we look forward to a travel bubble happening, it gets postponed due to a spike in Covid-19 cases. So instead of just waiting for something that might not happen any time soon, why not do a virtual drive around the different cities in the world. This site is pretty amazing, you get to pick a city you like, switch on the street sound and the radio, and be immersed in the ‘road trip’ experience after.
8. Take this time to declutter your house
If you're going to be home for a while, now's the time to declutter your house. Sweep your gaze around the room. Is there anything that you have not touched in over a year? Open up drawers and cabinets and go through every room. Throw out or recycle things that you don't need and organize everything else. How often do you get to do this?
