With COVID-19 still posing an issue in the United States,it's challenging to find something fun to do without going out. Maybe, before the pandemic, you spent your weekends going out to dinner, socializing with friends, and traveling. However, now you can’t take part in any of those things like you did before. 

Are you tired of staying home and being bored all the time? Well, maybe you can conquer your boredom by fostering your creativity and spending some time on extra activities that you haven’t done before. There are so many fun things to do — with just a few materials and a little imagination, you’ll be losing track of time before you even know it. Follow along for some fun activities you can do in the comfort of your own home. 


Many people dread cooking, because they have to do it every single day. However, cooking can be so much fun when you decide to try something new. Pull out your favorite cookbook and your frying pan and get to work! One of the greatest parts about the internet is that you can find many amazing recipes even if you do not have a cookbook at home. From building your own pizza to making a seafood dinner, the possibilities are endless. 

If you have kids or a partner, this is a great opportunity to get them excited about cooking! You can spend some quality time together while also creating something spectacular. Find something you haven't cooked before to make it a fresh experience. Who knows, maybe you will find something that you will end up making consistently.


After picking up just a few supplies like paint, paper, a canvas, and some paint brushes– you are ready to create some art. Even if you don’t consider yourself an avid painter, art is a great activity for relaxation and stress relief–especially during the pandemic. In fact, according to research, your mind reaches a meditative state when you take part in art, and you get major stress-relief. It is an amazing creative outlet for self-expression. Who knows, you may even enjoy your result. 

If you would rather not paint, drawing or colored pencils is equally fun and creative. Best part is, you can do it all from home.

Board Games or Puzzles

If you’re alone, a puzzle is an excellent idea for you to keep your mind occupied. There are puzzles that come in all different shapes and sizes. Depending on your time preference, you will want to choose one that fits your schedule. This may seem boring at first, but you may notice that you’ll get super into it and won’t want to quit. 

On the other hand, if you have a bigger family or a partner who lives with you, board games is another fun option to pass time at home while still having fun. The best thing is that you can bring out your competitive side and also bond with your family or friends while you play. Who doesn’t love a good challenge?!

Have a Self-Care Night

Bring out that nail polish and face mask for a night of pampering yourself. Turn on your favorite movie or TV show while you decide to give yourself some much needed“ you time”. It can be stressful to manage everything that is going on in the world right now, so why not treat yourself with some care? Throw in a glass of wine and don’t be afraid to let yourself unwind. If you have others with you, the more the merrier. They can help you paint your nails and choose a fun movie. 

DIY Projects 

Have you been neglecting your home projects for when you have more time? Well, what better way to add some fun to it by doing it yourself. It is the perfect opportunity to finish those home improvements while you have the extra time stuck at home. Even if you don’t have anything to fix up, you can get creative and build some new things like a bird feeder or storage shelf. Whatever it may be, get your hands on some materials and start building!
