So you’re trapped at home again?

Whether it is because of the weather or if you have to quarantine, there are so many things that you can do for fun or at least feel more accomplished.

Use this time in lockdown or at home to accomplish some of those goals like that to do list that never seems to end, or learning a new language!  But if you need some time to relax or just do something completely different, we’ve got some ideas to help you have fun with the whole family.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to go on a scavenger hunt.

Make your own Home Scavenger Hunt.  Make a list of all of the things your family has to find, or you can do it on your own!  If you’re on your own, maybe you find the best new outfit with your old clothes in your closet, or those shoes that you’ve been trying to wear for a couple of years in the back of an old shoe box.  If you do it with kids, go a little more treasure hunt with clues like a “green button” or “a red piece of furniture.”  Have them snap a pic and then they have to prove they’ve found everything for a reward.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to camp inside.

Camp Inside.  Why not have a staycation in your own living room?  It might be too cold to be outdoors, but put up the tent, or at least bring the sleeping bags inside and voila!  You’re on vacation from home.  Why not round it out by telling scary stories in a circle and roasting marshmallows over your stove or in your fireplace.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to take a bath.

Take a Luxurious Bath.  There is never too much decadence when it comes to bath time.  Grab your bath bombs, bath salt, or just add some shampoo while the bath is running to get some bubbles and put on some music.  It also helps if you have a fun drink by your side, light some candles, and pull out some fun magazines or a book to read.

Create a gourmet restaurant menu at home.  You may be stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean you can “eat out.”  Why not create a menu for an appetizer, main course, and dessert (or just do one and save yourself the trouble).  Try cooking something you’ve never made before, or have a theme, like Alice’s French Restaurant, cook french food and then play some french music at dinner.  You’ve made your own french restaurant.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to make a family cookbook.

Make a Family Recipe Book.  Ask your family to send in their favorite go to recipes from over the years and put them together in a cookbook!  You’ll be surprised what people choose to send in, or you can find all the go to recipes you use and give them to your family members for a treat.  You can even create the Covid Cookbook, all those recipes you started to learn during the pandemic.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to bake something new.

Bake Something New.  Try a new recipe with your baking!  We have tons of cookies and cakes that you can try on our blog and you can surprise your friends and family with your new baking skills.  Or go back to an old favorite like chocolate chip cookies that you know everyone loves.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to have a tea party.

Have a Tea Party.  Go all out and have a tea party.  Make scones and little tea sandwiches and have all kinds of different tea options.  Make sure to have milk and sugar for the tea so you can try different combinations with the types of teas and see what you like best.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to make a cinema.

Go to the “Cinema.”  Make your home an at home cinema.  Create a film festival with your family, maybe decide on Classic Hollywood or Marvel Universe and then go through the top films in that category.  Pop some popcorn and turn on the films!

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to take a bath.

Have a Spa Day.  If you’re stuck at home you should Treat Yourself!  Put on a facemask, put cucumbers on your eyes and get into the bathtub while you read a trashy magazine. You deserve to take care of yourself.

Mix Up a New Cocktail.  Become a mixologist and create your own cocktail.  What would you want in yours?  Do some research online about your taste preferences and then mix away!

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to plan a vacation.

Plan Your Next Vacation.  Really!  Just do it!  Whether it’s just a hotel in your city or far far away, give yourself something to dream about.  You don’t have to book anything right now, but you should definitely start dreaming.

A fun thing to do while you're stuck at home is to make resolutions.

Figure out Your Resolutions.  It’s that time of the year where anything is possible.  Figure out your goals for the next year and what you want to accomplish.  Make them manageable so you can succeed.
