Quarantine Activity Ideas

JEWELRY MAKING | I ordered some cute beads via Amazon and have been making bracelets! I thought of the fun idea to make bracelets with my favorite song titles to wear to my next concerts. Since some of the concerts I had planned have gotten canceled I wanted to keep the fun going and look forward to the next tour! But of course you could make bracelets for anything. Better yet you could make friendship bracelets then send them to your friends for a fun little surprise gift.
Supplies: elastic string I've been using | gold and silver bead set | letter bead set 

TIE DYE | I've seen everyone in their brother tie dying and I really want to hop on the bandwagon. But I have no supplies and nothing white to tie dye. So, that may have to wait. If you have the supplies for sure worth testing it out.

PRACTICE HAND LETTERING | Brit + Co was offering free online classes so I took a hand lettering class to work on my brush lettering. It's something I kind of started but never sat down to properly learn. I had some brush pens on hand but then ended up ordering some thinner ones and a pad of paper that is thicker! For sure a fun and relaxing activity to test out.
Supplies: black brush pen set | mixed media paper pad | dual brush pen set 

CROCHET | My friend is super into crocheting at the moment. She gave me a Mickey crochet kit a while ago and I think I'm going to test it out! I've linked it below and you should be able to use a Michaels coupon on it! I am no crotchet expert, but hopefully after some Youtube videos I can get the hang of it.
Supplies: Mickey crotchet set 

PLANNING | Planning decoratively is a major hobby of mine. If you like to be organized and you scrapbooked in your past this is the hobby for you. I have a ton of planners, stickers, washi tapes, pens, and more to create my planner spreads. But, I've linked the basic supplies to help you get started with this hobby. Plus some of my favorite Youtube channels so you can get some inspiration!
Supplies: Happy Planner (budget option) | planner sticker book | my go-to black pen | another sticker book option | build your own Erin Condren planner (my go-to planner) 
Youtube Channels: Stick with me Shop | Scribble Prints Co | TheCoffeeMonsterzCo 

MOVIE MARATHON | A easier activity to create is a movie marathon! Whether it be a Pixar marathon, 80's movies, Harry Potter, it can be whatever you wish. I'm thinking a 80's movie marathon with Ferris Bueller, Sixteen Candles, and Breakfast Club is needed.

FACETIME A FRIEND | Another easy activity! Facetime or as the cool kids these days do it Zoom a friend and have a chat. I've Facetimed a few friends just to catch up or when I'm bored. It's a great way to socialize and pass the time.

VIDEO CHAT WITH CO-WORKERS | I'm used to not seeing my co-workers because we all work in different places! Recently we've been doing more group Facetimes to chat and talk about work. It's great especially if you are used to being in an office everyday. Luckily my job has prepared me for the quarantine life.

GO FOR A WALK | Take some time to go outside! Now that Chuck is back I've been going on more walks. But even before that my mom and I would take a lap around the neighborhood together in the evening after dinner. Helps us get moving and get some fresh air. And by fresh air I mean 30 degree winds hitting our faces, but it'll have to do.

PHOTOGRAPHY | This is also a great time to test out your photography skills. Whether you just have a phone or a camera you can look up tutorials on Youtube or take a Brit + Co class to sharpen those skills. I take a ton of blog photos in my house because it's cold here and I can't shoot outside year round. It is sometimes a challenge but it makes you get creative! There are a ton of Instagrammers doing great inside shoots right now. Browse your feed to get inspiration.

EDIT PHOTOS | Since I don't have a ton of new photos I've been editing a ton of older photos of mine. If you don't have Lightroom now would be a great time to get it and start practicing editing photos. If you want a free editing app I love A Color Story! Has a ton of great filters and this is also how I plan my posts and feed.

Hopefully that gave you some fun ideas of activities to do in quarantine! How are you handling quarantine? Let me know in the comments. Hope you are all staying safe and healthy!
