Bored during quarantine and trying to find activities to keep you sane? I don't know about you but COVID-19 has me going crazy at home. This list of things to do might help you keep out of the insane boredom!
The first thing I love to do when I’m bored is pull out an old drawing or painting that I started and haven’t finished. Or if you want to start a new one, that's great too! You can paint from your ideas, or watch a tutorial on something you have in mind.
Here are some videos and ideas I have tried and loved!
The next thing I love to do is try a new craft and learn a new skill. From making friendship bracelets to crocheting a blanket, here are some crafts you can do with supplies you have at home!
As you know, scrunchies are in right now, but they can rack up in price very quickly, but they are super easy and affordable to make! All you need is some scrap fabric, and the right mindset! I learned how to make a scrunchie from this video:
Friendship Bracelets are also super cute and require only string and a pattern! They might be a little confusing to make at first but once you get the hang of the basic pattern, you can make any type of bracelet! Here are a few ways you can make them:
Candles are also a skill that require low, or no experience at all! You can make a candle from some old miscellaneous candles that are almost out, or you can start new!
This video shows a step by step tutorial on how to make them, again, you can make them from scratch like this:
Or you can make them from older candles, the tutorial is linked here:
And if none of that interests you while you are stuck inside for quarantine, try a science experiment. Whether you're a scientific genius or just want to try an experiment you've seen online, here are a few fun experiments you should try!
