What I’ve Been Doing to Keep Myself Busy at Home!

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! 😋

Google’s version of Solitaire is adorable!

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:


A bee! It’s so cute! It’s by bestdiycrafts and you can find it here!
This a picture of someone who painted their jeans, which is a great idea too! It looks so good! RAADA is the creator of this picture, and you can find it by clicking here.

5. Bake something new! I absolutely love baking! I will list some of my favorite recipes below!

This book is all about baking/cooking! It was so good!

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
I absolutely love this song! I could listen to it on repeat for hours and not get bored!

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! 😄

This is how I feel! So many books!!! 😍

Thank you so much for reading, it means the world to me! I hope that you have a wonderful day! ❤️—Rishika
