Hi everyone! Today, I thought that I would share some activities that I have enjoyed doing while I’m at home. I hope that these ideas help! 😄
1. Try a jigsaw puzzle! The website Jigsaw Explorer has A TON of puzzles to choose from! They might not seem like fun, but try to challenge yourself—can you finish a 100-piece puzzle in under ten minutes? 😄
2. Play solitaire! My mom taught me the rules the other day and since then, I have been addicted to trying to win! I started off on this website, but then downloaded the app “Solitaire”, which is a lot easier! I have had so much fun playing this game and trying to beat my high score! 😋
3. Try a new craft! I absolutely love crafting, and I’m constantly looking for new ideas to recreate! I really enjoyed doing this craft by Lauren Fairweather, where she taught us how to make a Harry Potter desk organizer! It was so much fun! She also used recyclable materials to make it, which I thought was super cool! 😄
4. Embroider your clothes! I haven’t tried doing this before, but I really want to! Pinterest has so many beautiful ideas, and embroidering is super fun! ❤️ I’ve only embroidered pieces of felt, but I really want to try to do something on my jeans. I will link some tutorials and pictures from Pinterest below!
Some beginner embroidering tutorials:
5. Bake something new! I absolutely love baking! I will list some of my favorite recipes below!
- https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/banana_bread/ (I only use one banana and I add a 1/2 cup of milk at the end!)
6. Listen to some new music! This is the perfect time to listen to some new songs! I absolutely love listening to music, and I’m always trying to find new songs to add to my playlists! I will list some of my favorite songs below!
- “Stranger’s Arms” by Lo Lo, DCF
- “Joke’s On You” by Charlotte Lawrence
- “Prom Queen” by Molly Kate Kestner
- “Maniac” by Conan Gray
- “Sleep Talking” by Charlotte Lawrence
7. READ!!! This one is probably my favorite! 😋 Though I miss going to school, I love having so much time to read! I’m currently reading Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, and I can’t wait to start a new book when I’m done! 😄
Thank you so much for reading, it means the world to me! I hope that you have a wonderful day! ❤️—Rishika
