Home Activities to Try During the COVID-19 Pandemic

June 8, 2020

Though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep everyone indoors, you don’t have to go without family fun. Video streaming platforms like Zoom make it easy to connect with friends and family while everyone stays apart, and when you’re happy to kick back with your own household, there are plenty of games to try and enjoy. Read on for ideas and activities to give a go at home.

Board and Card Games

If you’re like many Americans and have board or boxed games stored around your home, now’s a great time to take them out and spend a night playing. Many are just as playable over video streams as they are with your household, so it’s a great way to include extended family members during this age of social distancing. Simply tweak some of the rules or volunteer to move others’ board pieces, get your camera set up to view your board, and you have a recipe for success.

Role-Playing Games

Not far off from board games are role-playing games, which require little more than someone reading the game dialogue and perhaps some individual playing sheets for hours’ worth of entertainment. There are dozens of different themes out there, and certain games are geared toward more experienced audiences. But, many are highly customizable for the party playing them and are easy to pick up, such as the very popular Codenames.

Trivia

Whether you’re playing a predetermined trivia game or simply asking questions from a list, trivia’s a great way to connect with loved ones outside your reach. General knowledge, academic categories, or even just fun Tennessee facts are a few good places to start. There are also random trivia generators available online if you don’t have games like Trivial Pursuit stored away at home. To spice things up, try different variations of some classic party games like “Most Likely To…” or “Psych.”
