If you’ve been inside for days on end amid the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be getting a little stir-crazy — or at the very least, feeling bored. You don’t have to use this time to write the next great American novel; indeed, there’s a lot to worry about and do. But if you are looking for some structure in your day, here are some fun activities you can do at home during the COVID-19 quarantine.
1. Have a Costume Night
Generally, the only time we can get away with putting on costumes is on Halloween. It is so entertaining to put on a costume and play. Have an evening with your family where everyone has to dress up in a costume. Maybe even pick a theme and come up with snacks and games to bring the night to life.
2. Throw an Indoor Picnic
Set out a picnic blanket and basket of food and eat your dinner as though you were having a picnic. Just having variety in your family life brings you closer together as a family unit. Events like this are often the catalyst for a fun-filled evening.
3. Have a Christmas Party (*In the Summer)
There is snow on the ground, so why not some magic in the air. Dig out that Christmas sweater, warm up some hot cocoa and snuggle up with your favorite Christmas movie. You might even feel inspired to set the brighten up the neighborhood with your Christmas lights like these folks.
4. Host an International Dinner Night
As a family, pick out a country you would like to learn more about and are interested in. Find cuisine that is unique to that country and prepare a dinner that would be served in there. This is a great way to learn about a new place, cook a new meal and try something new.
5. Film a “Newscast”
The technology that exists today is awesome. Set up your phone and make a newscast of events that are going on locally or events that are taking place in your family circle. This will also help everyone learn to speak in public. Doing this at home is an unusual way to interact as a family.
