5 Fun Activities to do When Bored
By: Gabrielle Rozanski
This summer, due to the coronavirus, has been unlike any summer before. Whether you’ve been spending the summer going on little adventures (using the necessary safety precautions) or binge watching Netflix all day (guilty!),boredom always seems to find a way in. Here’s a list of fun activities you can do when boredom overcomes you.
Tie dying is one of my favorite activities EVER! It’s hands on and is the perfect way for you to really let your personal style shine through, because you are in control of the design. The way the shirt turns out depends on how you fold the shirt and what colors you use. The materials you need are pretty minimal as well, only requiring some white shirts, tie dye, and rubber bands. And the best part is you can’t really mess up on tie dye.
With summer in full bloom, the heat can sometimes be a bit too much to handle. When it’s too hot to do anything else, the best idea might be to just chill by the pool. If you don’t have access to a pool, don’t worry because there’s other options such as water balloon fights. Water balloon fights, in my opinion, are super underrated and don’t get enough credit.
After you’ve watched the latest baking show on Netflix, the perfect way to showcase all those new skills is to challenge yourself and make dessert you’ve never made before. Whether you decide on a simple cookie recipe or a complicated cake recipe, you can’t go wrong! Plus, you get to eat your creation after!
Even though you’ve probably binged watched multiple different series on Netflix throughout this summer, having a movie marathon is a completely different experience. So pick a movie series, either one you love or one you’ve never seen before and plan out a day where you can have one. Make sure there are lots of snacks available and don’t be afraid to take breaks to stretch.
The best way to relax is with a spa day, and the coolest thing is you don’t have to leave your house to have one! So put on a face mask, paint your nails, listen to calming music and rest, it’s that simple. There’s plenty of at home DIY face masks you can make with ingredients you already have, so you don’t need to worry about going out and buying one.
