Now that we are officially in autumn, we will start experiencing “typical” British weather; wet, windy and dark outside
As you can imagine, that doesn’t exactly make anyone feel great about the next few months. Oh, summer, why did you have to go so soon?
There will be times where you’re stuck at home, and the weather just looks horrible outside. The last thing you want to do is stay at home and get bored. So, to help you pass the time on those rainy days, I’ve compiled a list of fun things you should do.
- Create an indoor treasure hunt with your kids
If your children are also stuck at home with you, playing outdoors will be a no-no. And that’s especially so if there are showers outside! One fun indoors activity you can involve them with is an indoor treasure hunt. You can devise a set of clues for them solve and find things like treats, toys, and movies.
- Have a yoga session
If you’ve got the place to yourself, why not de-stress yourself with some yoga? The brilliant thing about yoga is that you can do it anywhere. All you need is some comfortable clothing and a yoga mat for the floor. Just make sure you’ve got some space to stretch out!
- Try your luck at roulette
Are you a fan of casino games? If so, why don’t you have some fun playing online roulette? Sites like mariacasino.co.uk let you play from a computer or mobile device. Plus, it’s something you can do in bed if you’re not feeling too well, for instance.
- Bake some delicious treats
When it’s cold and raining outside, you need a bit of cheering up. Now, you might think that chocolate is the answer here. Well, it is in a sense.Instead of eating some chocolates, why not bake something from scratch? Chocolate chip cookies are always a quick and fun treat to make. Plus, you can share them with others in your household too (or not, if you’re feeling greedy)!
- Perfect your singing voice with some karaoke
Even if your voice isn’t pitch perfect, karaoke is still a good laugh when you’re bored at home on a rainy day! Plus, it’s an activity that others can enjoy with you as well. You don’t need a karaoke machine or disco lights; you could just sing along to some songs.
- Have a DVD day
Sometimes you just don’t know what to do with yourself if you’re stuck at home. One thing you could do is immerse yourself in all the movies you’ve been meaning to watch! Pick out a selection of DVDs from your video library and make a day of it!
- Build a robot
If you want to nurture your geeky side, why not build a robot? As weird as that sounds, anyone could build one – even kids! You could use something like the Raspberry Pi. Check out raspberrypi.org for more details on what you could create.
- Learn how to crochet
Interesting in learning a new practical craft? Crochet is something that doesn’t require electricity, and you can do it anywhere. Perfect your crochet skills, and you could make all kinds of wool creations!
