Staying in is the new going out but it doesn’t have to be boring. There are all sorts of things you can do to entertain yourself whilst you’re stuck at home. From tie-dye galore to baking a new recipe, we’ve searched high and low for fun things to do when you’re bored in the house and in the house bored.
Take a look at our top 10 things to do during lockdown.
1) Host a virtual pub quiz night
Houseparty and Zoom are perfect for hosting a virtual pub quiz night with your mates. Nominate yourself as quiz master and create a super fun quiz with lots of different rounds to entertain your friends on a Saturday night.
2) Tie-dye legit anything
Tie-dye is BIG right now and we’re lovin it! Grab an old tee, a pair of socks, some joggers or a hoodie and experiment with different colours and designs. Follow our guide to DIY tie-dye and get creative!
3) Clear out your wardrobe
Is your wardrobe full of clothes you no longer wear? Guilty! Use this free time to clear out your old clothes. Compile a pile of unwanted items to either sell on Depop or eBay or to take to the charity shop when they reopen again.
Once your wardrobe is clutter-free, take the time to organise your wardrobe. Who knows, you might even discover an old fave!
4) Create a photo album or scrapbook
Now is the time to get those creative juices flowing!
Download an app such as FreePrints to get up to 45 free 6x4 prints a month. Once you’ve built up a collection of your fave pics, use them to document your 2019 holiday or festival experiences in a scrapbook or create a photo album of your memories from Uni.
5) Bake something new
Bring your new-found creativity to the kitchen too…
Who else is seeing homemade banana bread all over their Insta feed? Mix it up a lil and try baking something new. Dig out a recipe book and bake a batch of cupcakes, cookies, flapjacks or millionaire shortbreads. Go wild with the decoration too!
6) Binge a Netflix series
It feels like Netflix was made for keeping us entertained during times like this. Treat yourself to popcorn and chocolate and bring your duvet with you to the sofa for the day to binge a new series. Take a look at our binge-worthy Netflix faves and let us know what your go-to series is!
7) Do a home workout
Exercise is a great way to fill your days whilst keeping fit and healthy. Put on an upbeat Spotify playlist and follow a workout Youtube video in the garden. Check out our home workout tips for more advice.
And if you’re bored at working out at home, why not try something a bit different and try an online yoga class?
8) Listen to a podcast or read a book
Take a break from your phone and escape with a podcast or book. What’s your fave genre?
9) Make a bucket list
Make a list of all the things you want to do (after lockdown, of course!) Think about your dream holiday destination, where you want to travel, what new food you want to try and let your imagination run wild. Creating a bucket list is sure to remind you of all the fun things you can plan when you’re no longer housebound.
