The “default” for staying at home is to flip on the TV and catch up with all those programs you’ve been eager to watch. Yet, despite having a seemingly unlimited number of things to watch on television, at some point you’ll want to click it off. It can be much better to engage you mind in different ways. Here are some things you can do by yourself or with the entire family.
Play with Lego
If you live in a house with kids, then you have Lego. It is time to gets the bricks out and start building. You can follow the instructions in the many kits that are available or you can opt for “freestyle.” Try creating a structure or world that uses every brick in your box. Be sure to snap plenty of pictures.
You can order all kinds of jewelry making supplies online. You can also find all the plenty of online tutorials that can show you the way to make earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Who knows? You might be able to make some creations that can sell online. That would be fun side business!
Host an English Tea Party
The traditional time for an English tea party is 3 in the afternoon but you can have your tea party any time. A genuine tea party isn’t just about the tea but also tasty treats like finger sandwiches and scones. Bonus points if you dress up in your finest outfits!
Spring is a time for planting and since you’ve got time on your hands, you might want to get some bulbs in the grounds. This is the season for planting tulips and daffodils. There are also summer plants like alliums and cannas that can go in early. Take the time to map out your garden. You could also mix up all your bulbs and be surprised at what pops up!
Read a Book
There are probably an equal number of books that you want to read as there are TV shows to watch. Along with reading your picks, you can also get back to basics and read aloud each night to the kids. Even if the kids are older, you can still read and take turns. It is easy to download books on pads and laptops.
Organize Storage Areas
All of this time at home might have you feeling overwhelmed by clutter. That is why you should take the time for a proper organizing of all your storage areas. You don’t have to do these all at one.
