Things To Do During Lockdown
Now that we are back once again in lockdown, many people are struggling to find ways to keep themselves entertained and occupied for the duration. “What to do in lockdown?” is a question everyone is asking themselves these days and as an answer, many people are returning to the hobbies they’ve had their entire lives such as reading, making art, and playing video games. Sometimes the tried and true methods of passing time aren’t always as effective as we would like them to be, which is why lockdown is the perfect time to experiment with new activities.
Playing Cooperative Adventure Board Games
If you and your family enjoy playing board games but are tired of the same old ones, it’s time to try a cooperative adventure board game. These games cover a spectrum of genres, ranging from horror to thriller to post-apocalyptic. Unlike standard board games, co-op adventure board games contain a lengthy story and some unique game play. A lot of these games also take hours to complete, so one game can last as long as a couple days based on the choices you and the other players make! In terms of offering immersive escapist things to do in lockdown, these kinds of board games are perfect for the job.
Experiment With Indoor Gardening
If you’re the type that likes to nurture, indoor gardening could be a fun thing to do in lockdown. You can grow some flowers or herbs from scratch or try your hand at kokedama, which are ornamental plants that grow from a ball of soil that is covered in moss. You can find some attractive kokedama from Bloominbee, such as this philodendron that’s enwrapped in natural jute twine. Kokedama is a traditional form of Japanese garden art and is usually displayed hanging or on a clear glass plate. Bloominbee has a number of different kokedama available with the option of purchasing a display hanger or plate.
Throw Yourself Into DIY Activities
DIY activities are a great way to keep yourself occupied during lockdown, and the best part is that there are so many of them! There’s DIY kits for gardening, clay sculpting, candle making, cross-stitch, and more. A great way to get started is through one of Two Fish & me’s DIY terrarium kits, which are simple to make and beautiful to look at. Their “Tranquility” DIY terrarium is mid-sized, will feature well on a bookshelf or coffee table, and will fill your home with a sense of much-needed serenity.
Try Something Outside Your Comfort Zone
Lockdown is the perfect time to try something completely new and outside your comfort zone. If you’ve always wanted to try painting but are afraid you won’t excel at it, why not try it out now? There are plenty of beginner tutorials online for almost any kind of hobby, so if you’ve always been a bit interested in knitting, sculpting, photography, or scrap-booking, there’s no better time to jump into it than now! Whether you want fun things to do in lockdown with your partner or a solo activity, don’t be afraid to attempt something new and different!
Stay Healthy, Occupied, and Entertained
During these trying times, the best way to look out for ourselves is to do whatever we can to ease stress and find enjoyment. Creative board games, DIY Kits, and new hobbies are all great ways to have fun, bond with your family, and access your creative side.
