Listen, we're going to be quarantined for quite some time, so we've got to learn how to make the most of it. I'd say these people are doing a pretty good job of that. Many are figuring out super creative ways to have a little wholesome fun while they're stuck at home. That may mean learning a new skill, singing with your pets, or even building furniture for the squirrels in your yard.
If you're struggling to come up with fun things to do while you're quarantined, there's plenty of inspiration in this list.
Homemade boat toys
This crafty neighbor made boat toys out of wood that they then offered for free for kids in the neighborhood! They get the satisfaction of completing a project, and the kids get new bath toys! It's a win-win.
Home hibachi meal
This dad went all out and created a whole hibachi meal in their home to celebrate his son's birthday. The clanging of the spatulas on the griddle got me real good.
Tic-tac-toe with the delivery guy
What a good way to have a fun interaction with a stranger while remaining safely distant! I bet this tic-tac-toe game was a welcome change in pace for the delivery guy too!
Yes, this couple spent the whole day building an art museum for their pet gerbil. Yes, it was worth it.
Fun with food
This is so cute. This person sent a picture of this professional-level food art to their mom and asked if she would make one for them. "I was just joking since I'm no longer a kid and living in another continent now," they wrote. But their mom still did it! This was her first try, and it's perfect.
This mom is making and selling squirrel tables (complete with a red-and-white checkered tablecloth and a baggy of peanuts) in order to make a little extra money during the quarantine. And people absolutely love them. Obviously.
Mom / daughter dances
This is maybe the best video I've seen in the entire month-and-a-half I've been quarantined. You think you know what's up, but when that mom starts dancing along with her daughter, it's just pure joy.
This person decided to use the quarantine to brush up on their painting skills, and it's totally working. They nailed this portrait of that slimy guy from Tiger King. What they're going to do with the painting now is anybody's guess.
Oh my goodness. If I had a family of ducks who visited my pool, I would be set during quarantine. I could watch them walk up and down the ramp and bob in the water all day every day.
