Enjoying that "Homey" Feeling

July 4, 2017

Have you ever felt the need to just sit back and relax at home? Are you bored of the same old regular outings that you go on looking to have some fun? Well, you don’t have to give up on the fun just because going outside is no longer an option. Invite some friends over and still have a blast! Here are some tips and tricks on how to enjoy your time with some family and friends in the comfort of your own home:

1- Cooking

If you have the patience and the love for cooking then what are you waiting for? Now is the perfect time to head to your kitchen and begin with those delicious recipes. Cooking can be a fun experience for individuals, couples, and even families. It is an activity that doesn’t have a defined set of participants, or knowledge for that matter. All you need is yourself, a good recipe (Youtube or in a book), the ingredients, and you are ready to go!

2- Board and Card Games

Test out your spelling skills with a nice game of Sudoko. Board and card games are always a fun activity to do with others, especially if you have that competitive side. The beauty is that there are games for your every taste, whether it’s for detective purposes or for simply testing out your luck.

3-Karoake

If you happen to have a karaoke machine at home then make use of it! It is one of the best ways to tests out your singing skills and just let go. Place some appetizers and soft drinks on the table in front of you and then have a sing off with your best buds.

Warning: It is better to do this with family and close friends to avoid embarrassment.

4-Movie Nights

Lose yourself in the world of Tv and film and enjoy a nice night in front of your screen. It is usually not recommended to spend so much time on your screen but that does not mean that a movie (or two) isn’t the best way to kill boredom. At least now, having watched a movie or even a series that is popular, you can contribute effectively to the conversations being held at work or school about them. Socialize better with the help of your Tv screen!

5-Arts and Crafts

This might seem like a tip for children, but it doesn’t have to be! Sometimes it is relaxing, and even therapeutic, to make something out of your own hands. There is a popular game in France known as Pate a Sel in which you can make shapes and forms out of a dough-like material. The activity is simple and can be done with only flour, salt, and some water. You can even paint the forms you created later on.
