Ways To Stay Engaged During Quarantine

Quarantine can be overwhelming, but you can make the best of it. We’ve compiled a list of inexpensive things to do, to enjoy our time at home.

On day seventy plus and we’re all feeling it. However, now with the weather looking up many of us are escaping to meadows, and cabins, and our very own back yards. To make things more fun here are some great activities you can be doing at home or outside with relatively few people involved.

Our first pick is Corn Hole. You can easily take this anywhere or even play inside (just be mindful throwing). The best part is the game literally dictates social distancing, you and your friends could play without ever touching. Corn Hole is so much fun, and our top pick for staying active while doing a traditional activity, not something “techy”. (we’re all a little computer fatigued, and this is a great option)

If you want to challenge yourself and have fun try your hand at a puzzle. We love the 1,000 piece puzzles from Eurographics Fine Art Collection. You can buy them HERE and they range from $15-30. Not only will you challenge yourself you will have a beautiful masterpiece when you’ve finished. You can do this alone or with help.

Ready to binge a series but feeling over Marvel, Harry Potter, or Middle Earth? Well, we have a film series in mind for you.

Take yourself back to the beginning and pop in the classic cinema that gave birth to James Bond. Dr. No among other classics are on Amazon Prime to stream now. You can find the more current collections on premium channels, but after you stream them on Prime, we say just go for it and rent all of them in one place. Give yourself the gift of adventure and fall into the world of a super spy.

Draw! We can’t stress enough what a great relief drawing can be. Drawing lets you escape while letting your mind play with bright colors and fantastical scenarios. Its a calm activity that will take you away from staring at a screen all day. For a more adult approach to coloring check out, “A Swear Word Coloring Book for Adults: Sweary AF: F*ckity F*ck F*ck F*ck “. Yes, it is exactly like it sounds, a coloring book filled with swear words you can color to your liking because…WTF. <– Click there. And of course your coloring options: Crayons or Colored Pencils.

Learn about Tarot cards. What else are you doing? Lets all learn to be witches and ride off on brooms into the twilight. But really, getting in touch with the spiritual side of human nature is pretty cool. You might learn alot about yourself and those around you. If anything this will be a great party trick when we can all hang out again. We think this set is pretty. But you can chose any you like best.
