Activities for a Lockdown

When rain, cold weather or a lockdown keeps us all inside, it can be hard to keep everyone entertained and on an even keel. So whatever the reason you’re staying behind closed doors, try one of these indoor, boredom-busting things to do. Turning your day into a memorable one.

  1. Pop some kernels and watch a classic movie from our list of 50
  2. Cuddle up with a pile of good books.
  3. Play “Simon Says” or “Follow the Leader.”
  4. Grab a deck of cards and teach your kids solitaire
  5. Make slime (groan)
  6. Fashion show! Let the kids raid your wardrobe
  7. Grab all the family and enjoy a book podcast.
  8. Write letters (on paper and with actual pens) to out-of-town friends.
  9. Do anything that involves that classic, bubble wrap!
  10. Make instruments; then, lead a very loud band through the lounge
