While having a break from life can seem fun and relaxing at first, it can become quite dull staying at home all the time. After a few days stuck at home due to COVID-19, it’s no secret that people are becoming restless. The lack of structure from a job or taking kids to school becomes agonizing.
Luckily, we live in a time when we have the internet to help keep us occupied. Many people are unaware of all the entertainment the internet has to offer. Here are some fun online activities for the whole family to enjoy while staying at home.
Start a New Series!
Okay, this may be one of the more obvious ones, but think about it. Sports are canceled. People are stuck at home together. Get around to watching that TV show that’s been sitting in your queue for months.
Many influencers have been posting their favorite shows online. See if a favorite celebrity has uploaded their picks and try out one of their suggestions. A nightly tradition with the family may begin that will bring everyone together even after this passes.
Watch How-to Tutorials
Time at home can be productive by learning a new skill, and the internet offers millions of tutorials covering different subjects. These easy, follow-along videos are great for adults and kids.
For amateur cooks, there are videos about the basics of cooking. For makeup gurus, try following along to create a more glam look than normal. Exercise videos would be perfect to start doing now that there’s extra time.
No matter your interests, there are tons of videos that are available to you.
Learn a New Language
They say practice makes perfect, and there’s ample time to practice a language these days. Free apps such as Babbel, Duolingo, and Memrise offer easy to follow lessons that will have you speaking a new language in no time. Buena suerte!
You don’t have to be a master coder in order to create your own video game. Easy to use websites offer a new way of making video games. All you need is an idea and the determination to bring it to life.
Simply plug in your ideas to the website’s program and watch your vision come to life. Using the best software for game design will make your boring days a thing of the past. Discover a new passion.
Take Tours of Far Off Places
Many museums are offering free virtual tours in the midst of the current state of the world. While actually traveling is not a good idea, you can easily ‘visit’ these places from the comfort of your own home.
Take a tour of the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and see Caravaggio’s famous Medusa, or see the wonders of the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. Whatever your interest, these virtual tours will transform your home into amazing museums from around the world.
Being stuck at home doesn’t have to be boring. There are many fun activities the internet has to offer. Whether it be learning a new skill, creating your own video game, or starting a new family tradition, being at home can be productive and fun.
