During these uncertain times, many of us are now finding ourselves stuck at home and looking for fun ways to spend time as a family. While you may not be able to go out to eat like you used to, or head to the movies to see your next featured film, there are a ton of fun ways to spend time as a family at home.
Host a Family Game Night
Grab all of your board games or video games and have a family game night! You can even challenge your family to play every game you have over the next few months! If you need some new games, remember that some video game consoles will let you purchase digital copies!
Cook Dinner Together
Get in the kitchen and make a meal together! You can even use this opportunity to teach your kids some essential cooking skills. This is also a way to make eating at home more fun!
Start a DIY Project
Get out your crafting supplies and see what you can create! You can use paper plates to make all kinds of fun creations, and even make your old K Cups into a fun craft.
Watch a Double Feature
RedBox, Fandango, and even movie theaters are offering movies that would have hit theaters in the form of a digital copy! You can watch this movie as a rental and watch the latest movies without leaving your home!
Bake Something Tasty
Dig through your baking cabinet and see what you can make! Homemade bread, brownies, or muffins are always a great option to bake at home.
Start a New Show Together
So many streaming services are offering free trials and even full-access while people are stuck at home. Take advantage of this time to start a new show together!
Get Household Chores Done Together
This one is not as fun, but it can be fun when done together! Use this time to do chores and catch up on each other’s lives or even turn it into a game!
Take a Virtual Tour of Your Favorite Zoo or Museum
Zoos, aquariums, and other public spots are now offering virtual opportunities for those stuck at home while they’re closed to the public. You can take tours or even watch the animals at your favorite zoo.
