1. Movie Marathon
Sometimes, being at home and just doing nothing or doing a simple activity could be a great help to one's sanity. A movie marathon is a great way to de-stress from the pressures of the current global situation. There are different movies for all ages so this is a no brainer; but the best genres are comedy or horror! You can make it even more fun by having a game and the one who won could pick the movie for the night. So, put on your pajamas, prepare those nachos, popcorn, and some ice cold beer, and have a movie night marathon!
2. A Bike Trip
Biking can be a pleasurable way to enjoy precious moments with your family. A bike ride can be a simple activity but could also be something that your family could look forward to each week. It helps your physical and mental health, as you all experience the world outside the comfort of your home or a car. Not to mention that this is a good opportunity to teach your kids about road safety. Each trip can be a special memory for your everyone!
3. Hold a Game
Amusing family activities need not cost too much. You could have a great time playing charades, scrabble, or any sport or game that everyone loves. You can even make a challenge to see how many games you can play as a family. Families could also enjoy a hilarious activity by solving some funny riddles that are great to improve everyone's thinking ability! Prizes vary but some save their winnings towards a family getaway!
Swimming is fun, no doubt. If you have a pool of your own, having a pool party during lockdown is easy. If a thermal pool or a beach is nearby and the local restrictions allow you to go for a swim, then go ahead and plan for that. This activity is relaxing while also keeping everyone on the move. You can't go wrong with the sun, sand, and seas with the people you love!
